The innocent deserve justice when they’re wrongfully held responsible for a dangerous crime that ruins their lives. That’s certainly the case with the young protagonist in the new thriller, ‘Brimstone,’ as she’s improperly targeted for committing an illicit offense. The North American rights to the drama have been acquired by Momentum Pictures.

‘Brimstone’ first premiered in September at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival to critical acclaim. Momentum Pictures’ Senior Vice President of Content, Ian Goggins, officially announced that the company is set to release the drama in theaters and on VOD in March 2017.

The western was written and directed by Martin Koolhoven, and stars Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Kit Harington, Carice van Houten and Emilia Jones. Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce’s strong performances truly capture the work and vision of filmmaker Martin Koolhoven,” said Goggins. “We couldn’t be more proud to release ‘Brimstone’ so that audiences can experience this amazing piece of cinema.”

‘Brimstone’ 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.
