The cast of Wim Wenders’ Every Thing Will Be Fine has grown with James Franco being joined by Rachel McAdams, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Robert Naylor, according to THR.
Franco is set to play a grief-stricken man who is responsible for the accidental death of a young boy. He uses his guilt to launch a successful writing career, although as he becomes more and more famous, he ‘represses and rejects the emotional connection he has to the boy’s brother and mother in the years after the accident’.
Rachel McAdams is playing the writer’s girlfriend, who is trying to deal with his crumbling mental state. Charlotte Gainsbourg plays the boy’s mother, with Robert Naylor portraying his brother, who reaches out to the author 10 years after the accident.
Wim Wenders is directing from a screenplay by Bjorn Olaf Johannessen, with shooting already under way in Montreal.
