U2 DRUMMER Larry Mullen has landed a movie role to star opposite Oscar winner Juliette Binoche.

The musician has joined the cast of Erik Poppe's 'A Thousand Times Good Night', which started shooting in Dublin last week.

'Downton Abbey' actress Maria Doyle Kennedy, Danish 'Game of Thrones' actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and upcoming talent Lauryn Canny also star in the film.

This is Mullen's second turn in front of the film cameras, following on from his 2011 role in Irish director Mary McGuckian's 'Man on the Train', with Donald Sutherland.

'A Thousand Times Good Night', an Irish and Norwegian co-production, is inspired by director Poppe's own experiences as a war photographer.

It tells the story of a photographer, played by Binoche, who is torn between the job and the family she loves.

Coster-Waldau has been lined-up to play the photographer's husband, while Mullen and Kennedy play their best friends in the drama.
