Franco Thinks Everything Will Be Fine

James Franco, not content with being one of the busiest men in Hollywood with the likes of This Is The End, As I Lay Dying and Good People all in the works, has now signed on to star in Wim Wenders’ 3D movie Everything Will Be Fine.  Franco will play a writer who accidentally kills a child and spends the next 12 years of his life seeing how the death has impacted him and the child’s mother.  Sarah Polley, the actress turned director who last gave us Take This Waltz, is rumoured to be starring as well, presumably in the role of the mother.  The script was written by Norwegian writer Bjorn-Olaf Johannessen and will be shot in 3D with Wenders stating he believes the medium lends itself in telling an intimate story.  Before that Franco will star opposite Jonah Hill in identity theft drama True Story.  Source – The Hollywood Reporter 

Alex Moss Editor

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
