Wim Wenders is working on a 3D Dance Project called Pina, which will be a tribute to acclaimed choreographer and dancer Pina Bausch. It came to a halt when the dance died last year. Wim Wenders has still been working on the project.
It is not going to be a regular Dance Film. Hopefully it will emulate something like the Dancemaker. The images from the film are with a lot of water being thrown around. The film is still in preproduction. Wim Wenders is also working on a film Miso Soup based on a film by Ryu Murakami. The film will follow Kenji, a tour guide of Tokyo nightlife, who is hired by an American named Frank to tour the strip clubs and sex bars of the city. Howeverm Kenji soon suspects Frank might be responsible for a series of brutal murders that have taken place. This will be something to watch out for from the director of movies like Paris, Texas.
The film is in the early stages of development and it will be released in Spring 2011. Another project in the pipeline is Everything will be Fine. It tells the story about a man named Tomas that drives aimlessly around the outskirts of town after a trivial domestic quarrel and accidently 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. This is just beyond imagination. When will the director get time to come around these films.

There is also short film, which Wenders did in 3D called Il Volo. It stars Ben Gazzara as the mayor of a Calabrian village who initiates a program in 1997 to try to integrate a set of Kurdish refugees into the dwindling population of his own people. Wenders is trying to give a unique voice to the format, which was all but killed by James Cameron.
