Momentum Pictures has acquired the North American rights to Brimstone starring Guy Pearce.
Written and directed by Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven, the film also stars Dakota Fanning, Kit Harington, Carice van Houten and Emilia Jones.

Ian Goggins, Senior Vice President of Content at Momentum said, “Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce’s strong performances truly capture the work and vision of filmmaker Martin Koolhoven. We couldn’t be more proud to release BRIMSTONE so that audiences can experience this amazing piece of cinema.”
