The Wrap just broke the story that “Every Thing Will Be Fine” has found a distributor in the U.S.A. IFC Films picked up the rights and will release the movie on December 4, 2015.
IFC Films announced today that the company is acquiring U.S. rights to Wim Wenders‘ Every Thing Will Be Fine. Wim Wenders‘ film, with a screenplay by Bjørn Olaf Johannessen, stars James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rachel McAdams, Marie-Josée Croze, Robert Naylor, Patrick Bauchau and Peter Stormare.
Every Thing Will Be Fine was produced by Gian-Piero Ringel and executive produced by Jeremy Thomas, Hussain Amarshi, Erwin M. Schmidt and Vince Jolivette.
The film will make its North American Premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival in the Masters section. IFC Films will release the film on December 4, 2015.
In this 3D drama, 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).
“We are thrilled to once more be working with Wim Wenders – a legendary filmmaker who brings great sensitivity to all his work. In Every Thing Will Be Fine, he delivers a compelling and beautifully shot examination of grief,” says Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films. Sundance Selects/IFC Films previously released two of Wenders’ past films including Pina (2011) and Land Of Plenty (2004).
The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, SVP of Acquisitions and Productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, with HanWay Films on behalf of the filmmakers.
Director Wes Craven passed away on Sunday. He was 72. Craven made his mark as horror director and directed horror classics as A Nightmare On Elm Street and Scream. Craven directed Rachel and co-star Cillian Murphy in 2005’s psychological thriller “Red Eye“. The movie celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary a few weeks ago, on August 19. We want to give our sincere condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time.
Craven continued to support Rachel’s career on social media, years after working together. Most recently he supported Rachel’s casting news in “True Detective” by tweeting “she’d be wonderful“. He also attended the “To The Wonder” Los Angeles premiere, alongside his wife Iya Labunka, back in 2013 where he was pictured with Rachel.

Earlier this month it was reported that Rachel “has been offered the female lead in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange”. Rachel was asked about this during her press rounds for “Southpaw” and confirmed to Amy Kaufman from Los Angeles Times that “it’s still super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all”. Over these past few days new reports have been published, most of them don’t report anything new other than the fact that Rachel confirmed the rumors herself, but a few new reports surfaced. First of all: Variety is now reporting that “sources tell Variety that McAdams is the choice to land the female lead”. Secondly, The Wrap reported Jeff Sneider revealed on twitter that Rachel has indeed an offer. Finally – and this is probably the most interesting part – Kaufman, who interviewed Rachel for the LA Times, now also released Rachel’s full statement:
“That’s sort of super early days and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all. I’m certainly not a comic book snob. I really enjoy them and reading them, I think the Doctor Strange franchise is really interesting and Benedict is amazing. And I love graphic novels. I love that they are coming to light. I always wanted to make ‘Black Orchid.’ It’s a tough one But the fact that Doctor Strange is happening makes me think there’s hope for more Neil Geiman out there.”
Fun fact #1: This is not the first time Rachel talked about Neil Gaiman’s Black Orchid (who is not part of the Marvel universe) back in 2008 she also expressed her interest. Back then she told the reporter: “She’s [Black Orchid] a superhero that’s a flower. I don’t know if that would work or the audiences would be interested in that, but she was kind of cool. I would love to play a female superhero. I do love graphic novels and I just think it’s just an exciting thing happening. Some of them are so beautiful.”
Fun fact #2: After the 2010 Oscars, Neil Gaiman wrote a column about inspecting Rachel’s beautiful dress for footprints. You can find it at our anecdotes information page, it’s definitely a fun read!
Since it’s such an anticipated project there have been many speculations about what role Rachel has been offered, including reports by ComingSoon.net and CinemaBlend.com. To sum-up: There seems to be truth to the reports of Marvel offering Rachel the female lead opposite “Benedict Cumberbatch” but nothing is officially yet and we think this full statement/quote of Rachel shows she is a comic-book/graphic novel fan herself.
Update – July 30: Turns out Neil Gaiman thinks Rachel as Black Orchid is a “brilliant idea” and also says “I’d watch it! She’s a great actress” (via #1 + #2).
The 72nd Venice International Film Festival just unveiled it’s official selection for this year’s film festival and it was just announced that “Spotlight” is part of their line-up. The movie will screen out of competition.
