LONDON — Global Screen has sold its war photographer drama “A Thousand Times Good Night,” which stars Juliette Binoche and “Game of Thrones” thesp Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, to Septieme Factory Distribution for France and Belgium.

Further all-right deals have been signed in recent weeks with Greece (Danaos Cinema), Brazil (Mares Filmes), Central America (Wiesner), Argentina (CDI Films) and Lithuania (Scanorama).

As announced earlier this year, the pic was also sold to the U.S. (Film Movement), Canada (Pacific Northwest Pictures), Japan (Kadokawa Corporation), Australia (Regency Film Distribution), U.K. (Arrow), Spain (Golem), Portugal (Lanterna de Pedra Filmes), Benelux (Wild Bunch), South Korea (Cinema Republic), China (Champs Lis), Hong Kong (Edko), Denmark and Finland (Smile), Turkey (Yeni Bir Film), ex-Yugoslavia (Discovery d.o.o.), Bulgaria (Multivision), Latin America (HBO), Israel (Shoval), Middle East (Italia Film Int.), Indonesia (Suraya) and other territories.

The pic, which opened in the U.S. on Friday, is directed by Erik Poppe (“Troubled Water”). It follows Rebecca, one of the world’s top war photographers, who struggles to reconcile her job with her family life. Pic also features Maria Doyle Kennedy, newcomer Lauryn Canny and Larry Mullen Jr., best known as the drummer for rock group U2.

Julia Weber, head of theatrical sales at Global Screen, said: “Our distributors keep telling me their audience for international drama is mainly female, educated and urban. ‘A Thousand Times’ is the perfect film for exactly this target group, as it tackles one of this audience’s greatest challenges with great delicacy: how to be successful in a demanding job and enjoy a fulfilling family life at the same time.”
