EXCLUSIVE: Dark drama stars Game of Thrones’ Hannah Murray.


New Europe Film Sales has sold UK and Irish rights to Jeppe Rønde’s thriller Bridgend to Soda Pictures.

The deal for the film, which recently won three awards at Tribeca Film Festival, was brokered in Cannes by Frances Harvey and Jan Naszewski.

Bridgend is a Wales-set thriller starring Hannah Murray (God Help the Girl, Game of Thrones), Steven Waddington and Josh O’Connor. It is inspired by true events and the spate of teen suicides from 2007 committed in Bridgend, a small former coal-mining province in Wales.

New Europe also sold TV rights for the film in Eastern and Central Europe to HBO Europe/Cinemax and reports strong interest from all-rights buyers in the US, Scandinavia and Asia.
