UPDATE: Rachel McAdams has joined the cast of Wim Wenders' "Every Thing Will Be Fine," the German director's new 3-D drama also starring James Franco and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

McAdams will take the role of Franco's writer character's girlfriend, a role which once had director-actress Sarah Polley attached.

EARLIER: Principal photography has begun in Montreal on Wim Wenders' latest, "Every Thing Will Be Fine," starring James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Marie-Josee Croze ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly"). Like Wenders' sublime Oscar-nominated documentary "Pina," the film will be in 3-D. It centers on a writer whose emotional life collapses following a traumatic car accident.

Gian-Piero Ringel, who produced "Pina," will again produce. Cinematographer Benoit Debie, known for his collaborations with director Gaspar Noe ("Irreversible," "Enter the Void"), is the director of photography.

Here's the official synopsis:

EVERY THING WILL BE FINE, based on an original script by the Norwegian Bjørn Olaf Johannessen, tells the story of Tomas (James Franco), a writer who loses control of his life after a car accident.  Even though he is not directly at fault, his relationship with his girlfriend breaks down because of this event and his life and work suddenly set off in a completely new direction.  The film follows Tomas over a period of 12 years and tells an intimate story of guilt and the search for forgiveness.

The film will be released in Germany and Canada in 2014, via Warner Bros. and Mongrel Media, respectively; no word yet on a stateside release.
