Toronto: James Franco’s ‘Everything Will Be Fine’ Bought by IFC

IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to Wim Wenders’ “Everything Will Be Fine,” which stars James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rachel McAdams and Marie-Josee Croze.

The 3D drama will make its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in the Masters section. IFC Films will release the film on Dec. 4.

Wenders directed from Bjorn Olaf Johannessen’s script, in which a tragic car accident links the lives of a struggling writer (Franco), his long-suffering girlfriend (McAdams), a grieving mother (Gainsbourg) and a publisher (Croze). Robert Naylor, Patrick Bauchau and Peter Stormare also star.

The film was produced by Gian-Piero Ringel and executive produced by Jeremy Thomas, Hussain Amarshi, Erwin M. Schmidt and Vince Jolivette.

Sundance Selects/IFC Films previously released two of Wenders’ films — “Pina” in 2011 and “Land of Plenty” in 2004.

The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with HanWay Films on behalf of the filmmakers.
