The distributor has picked up North American rights from CAA to the western-thriller starring Dakota Fanning and Kit Harrington.


Martin Koolhoven directed Brimstone from his original screenplay about a frontier woman who goes on the run from a vengeful preacher when she is wrongly accused of a crime.

Guy Pearce, Carice van Houten and Emilia Jones round out the key cast. Els Vandevorst and Uwe Schott produced.

Momentum Pictures has earmarked a day-and-date theatrical and VOD launch for March 2017.  

“Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce’s strong performances truly capture the work and vision of filmmaker Martin Koolhoven,” said Momentum Pictures’ senior vice-president of content Ian Goggins.

“We couldn’t be more proud to release Brimstone so that audiences can experience this amazing piece of cinema.”
