“Game of Thrones” and “Pompeii” star Kit Harington is set to replace Robert Pattinson in Martin Koolhoven’s upcoming thriller “Brimstone” which just began filming.
Dakota Fanning plays a heroine on the run from her past and chased by an evil Preacher (Guy Pearce). Harrington will play an outlaw who has a crucial role in this tale of retribution. Paul Anderson, Jack Roth, Carla Juri and Harington’s ‘Thrones’ co-star Carice van Houten also star.
Pattinson had been linked to the role earlier this year at the Berlin Film Festival. This marks the second high profile cast switch on the project as Mia Wasikowska was originally cast in Fanning’s role.
