German sales outfit Global Screen has boarded drama A Thousand Times Good Night, which is currently in production.

Inspired by Poppe’s own experiences as a war photographer in the 1980s, the film charts the story of a photographer, played by Binoche, torn between her job and her family.

Scripted by Poppe with Norwegian writer Harald Rosenløw Eeg, the $7 million project is packaged in collaboration with Ireland’s Newgrange Pictures and Zentropa International Sweden. Norway’s Euforia Film will release domestically in autumn 2013.
