LONDON — “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington has joined the cast of “Brimstone,” which has just started principal photography. The film will shoot on location in Romania, Spain and Germany.

Also joining the cast are Paul Anderson (“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”), Jack Roth (“The Great Train Robbery”) and Carla Juri (“Wetlands”).

The film, which is written and directed by Martin Koolhoven (“Winter in Wartime”), stars Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce  and Carice van Houten. Fanning stars as Liz, a heroine on the run from her past and chased by Pearce’s character, the diabolical Preacher. The movie is described as “a vivid and powerful epic of one woman’s defiant resistance.”

Els Vandevorst (“Dogville”) of Holland’s N279 Entertainment produces, alongside Uwe Schott (“Amour”) of X-Filme. Antonino Lombardo of Belgium’s Prime Time, Peter Hiltunen of Dragon Films in Sweden, and the Jokers’ Manuel Chiche and Violaine Barbaroux from France are co-producers.

The U.K.’s Embankment Films is handling international sales on the movie, and inked a slew of pre-sales prior to Cannes, including Germany (Koch Media) and France (The Jokers Films). N279, France’s Backup Media and Embankment arranged financing with London-based New Sparta Films, and Paul Trijbits and Christian Grass’ Filmwave.

The film is being shot by cinematographer Rogier Stoffers (“The School of Rock”) and edited by Job ter Burg (“Borgmann”). Production design is by Floris Vos, who has worked on all of Koolhoven’s films.

    It should end with Kirkman admitting he ripped off 28 Days Later (and other for in the rest of his comics). Giant hack.

  2. ryan says:

    This is all a cover for Game of thrones. It filming in same general vacinity and the one person that can revive or save jon snow also starring?

  3. Matt says:

    WTF? What happened to Mia and the Pattinson dude? This guy is a big downgrade and so is Dakota.

  4. Anon says:

    this script is amazing and the WME actors pulling out was disgusting. cannot wait to see what this becomes.

  5. Mattt says:

    What happen with Pattinson this time ? What is the excuse ? Is like he can’t keep a project anymore.

  6. J.J says:

    Strange. Dakota Fanning and the cast of GOT ! LOL. It’ll be a TV movie

  7. Sandy says:

    Looks like Pattinson passed so did Mia. Not much love out there for this Koolhoven guy.
    Both repped by WME hmmm interesting.

    • Bric says:

      It’s rather Mia passed and Robert was dropped. The producer of Brimstone threw shade on him, which is quite unusual and doesn’t bode well at all for his future career.

  8. He was excellent in Testament of Youth. Happy for him seeing growing. We do not need cute face, we need talents. And he is talent!

    Ugh more Kit Harington – yuk. Authenticity flies out the window then.
    Was looking forward to Pattinson after his performance with Guy P in The Rover
    What happened to Mia Wasikovska?? Dakota Fanning is a definite downgrade

    • Michael says:

      Dakota Fanning is great you idiot and certainly no downgrade by her body of work. So what are you babbling about

  10. Luc says:

    So Harrington is replacing Pattinson which is definitely an upgrade. Sounds like an interesting story.
