The 3D family drama starring James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rachel McAdams will screen in Toronto ahead of a Dec. 4 domestic release.

IFC Films has picked up the U.S. rights to Wim Wenders Every Thing Will Be Fine ahead of a North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Wenders’ family drama, which stars James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rachel McAdams, will get a Dec. 4, 2015, stateside release. The 3D pic portrays a tragic car accident that links the lives of a struggling writer (Franco), his long-suffering girlfriend (McAdams), a grieving mother (Gainsbourg) and a publisher played by Canadian actress Marie-Josée Croze.

Every Thing Will Be Fine, which debuted in Berlin, is based on a screenplay by Norwegian writer Bjørn Olaf Johannessen, with Gian-Piero Ringel producing. "We are thrilled to once more be working with Wim Wenders, a legendary filmmaker who brings great sensitivity to all his work," Jonathan Sehring, president of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said in a statement.

Sundance Selects/IFC Films previously released Wenders’ Pina (2011) and Land of Plenty (2004). The executive producer credits are shared by Jeremy Thomas, Hussain Amarshi, Erwin M. Schmidt and Vince Jolivette.

The U.S. deal for Every Thing Will Be Fine was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, senior vp acquisitions and productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, with HanWay Films representing the filmmakers.
