Irish co-production ‘A Thousand Times Goodnight’ has been bought by Global Screen, the world sales unit of Germany's Telepool and Bavaria Film.
The operation have picked up all international distribution rights outside Sweden and Norway for the war photographer drama starring Juliette Binoche and directed by Norwegian Erik Poppe.
Currently shooting on-location in Dublin, the film also stars ‘Game of Thrones’ actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr.
‘A Thousand Times Goodnight’ follows the story of Rebecca (Binoche), a war photographer who is given an ultimatum from her husband and daughter to quit her dangerous job or leave the family.
Poppe, who himself was a war photographer in the 1980s, co-wrote the screenplay with Harald Rosenlow Eeg.
Ireland’s Newgrange Pictures are co-producing the feature alongside Paradox in Norway and Zentropa International Sweden.
Jackie Larkin and Lesley McKimm will produce for Newgrange alongside Norwegian-based Finn Gjerdrum and Stein Kave for Paradox.
The feature’s budget is reportedly around €5m with the project having been offered €300,000 from the Irish Film Board in the last round of funding. The Norwegian Film Institute is also supporting the feature.
