We reported during Sundance that The Night Listener, Patrick Stettner's adaptation of the Armistead Maupin novel, sold North American rights to Miramax. The film, about a radio talk show host who gets involved in the tale or horrific abuse of a young listener - and then questions whether the tale, and the boy, are even real, stars Robin Williams, Toni Collette, Sandra Oh and Rory Culkin. 

Things just keep getting better and better for the flick - the film has been added as a "surprise screening" (well, it's not so much a surprise, really, as a previously unannounced engagement) to the 2006 Berlinale, which starts today. In addition to scoring a slot a the Berlinale, Indiewire notes that even before the Berlinale's all-important European Film Market, Fortissimo Films, the flick's sales co, is reporting The Night Listener has scored sales in Germany, Israel,  Taiwan, Thailand, Czech Republic, Turkey, UK, Australia, and Scandinavia - which doesn't leave too much of the free world for the film to still conquer.
