CJ Entertainment has pre-sold Bong Joon-ho's Mother to Diaphana for France and Park Chan-wook's Thirst to Palisades Tartan for UK.

Diaphana previously distributed CJ's Secret Sunshine which it picked up immediately before last year's Cannes - where it took best actress for Jeon Do-yeon, opening it in France on 65 prints.

Palisades Tartan is a subsidiary of Palisades Media Corp., a New York-based film finance and distribution company with offices in London, NY and LA. They previously picked up the former Tartan library with other Park Chan-wook films.

CJ also did a package deal with Catchplay for Taiwan for thrillers Black House and Wide Awake, and three of the 'Four Horror Tales' omnibus - Dark Forest, Roommates, and February 29.

Rose Media also picked up rom-coms Hello, Schoolgirl and Lost And Found, and period drama Portrait Of A Beauty.

Horizon for Turkey picked up action drama Public Enemy Returns.
