Wim Wenders Sets Sail for Cannes, But Where Is 'Every Thing Will Be Fine'?

18 April 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Among the many surprises in the yummy Cannes Film Festival lineup is the absence of German auteur Wim Wenders' eagerly awaited 3D redemption drama "Every Thing Will Be Fine," once thought to be a Main Competition candidate. But we will see "The Salt of the Earth," a documentary Wenders codirected by Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, screening in the Un Certain Regard sidebar, which makes room for edgier fare. Plus, the Cannes vet and two-time Fipresci prize winner's Palme d'Or-anointed classic "Paris, Texas" (1984) will also screen in the Classics section. It could be that "Every Thing Will Be Fine" will take the alternative, late-summer route to Venice, especially given that one of his upcoming projects is a 3D tribute to Venetian architecture. Or, even later, it could head to Telluride, where Wenders likes to hang with buddy Werner Herzog, or even his home town festival Berlin next February, where his first foray into 3D documentary, »

Rachel McAdams Drops Out Of 'Passengers'; Film Production Delayed

14 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Rachel McAdams will no longer be a part of Passengers, the sci-fi movie starring Keanu Reeves, which was set to begin filming next month.

Rachel McAdams Drops Out Of 'Passengers' Movie

With McAdams out, Passengers will have to find a new female lead, as they did when Reese Witherspoon backed out earlier in the production process, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Produced by Reeves and Stephen Hamel’s Company Films with financial backing from Wayfare Films, the project is at a standstill.

The Weinstein Co. had acquired rights to the movie following the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, but have since withdrawn from the project, likely due to its production delays. CAA will now have to find a new U.S. distributor for the science-fiction effort.

'Passengers' Production Delayed

Helming the picture is Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire). According to reports, he was to begin shooting Passengers on April 7 in Germany. »
