Momentum Pictures has secured North American rights to the Martin Koolhoven-directed Western thriller Brimstone, which stars Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Kit Harington, Carice van Houten and Emilia Jones. The film debuted at this year’s Toronto Film Festival and will be released in theaters and on digital platforms in March.
The pic, also written by Koolhoven, tells the story of a frontier woman-turn-fugitive when she is wrongly accused of a crime she didn’t commit and is hunted by a vengeful preacher. Els Vandevorst and Uwe Schott produced Brimstone, while Paul Trijbits, Antonino Lombardo, Manuel Chiche and Peter Hiltunen served as co-producers.
The deal was negotiated on behalf of Momentum Pictures by Sejin Croninger, SVP Worldwide Acquisitions at Entertainment One; and CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
