Sarah Polley Wim Wenders

With her latest, excellent directorial effort "Take This Waltz" headed to theaters this summer, writer/director/actress Sarah Polley is going to step back in front of the camera for Wim Wenders' first narrative feature film since 2008's little seen and not particularly well received "Palermo Shooting."

Titled "Everything Will Be Fine," Wenders is taking his love of 3D, utilized on his celebrated dance doc "Pina" last year, into the drama penned by Bjørn Olaf Johannessen that, according to THR, is about a German magician who disappears in the wilds of Norway. But it seems their intel might be a bit off (either that, or the project has changed dramatically) as according to Wenders' production company Neue Road Movies, it's quite a different story. Here's their synopsis:

One day, driving aimlessly around the outskirts of town after a trivial domestic quarrel, Tomas accidentally hits and kills a child. The accident marks him for the next twelve years, as we follow the event's implosion in Tomas' everyday life. Will Tomas be able to move on? Will he ever be able to look in the mirror and see a man, not a murderer?

No word yet on Polley's role, but with the film headed to Cannes to be repped to buyers, more details should hopefully be coming soon. The production already has a little over $770,000 in financing and we presume a bit more will be coming, but it doesn't look like this will be a big budget movie by any stretch. The plan is for Wenders have it all wrapped up by the end of 2012, with a premiere at the Berlin Film Festival being eyed. While Wenders' later stage feature films haven't exactly delivered, a pairing with Polley is certainly one that's hard to ignore, so consider this firmly on our radar.
