There might have been a bit of a bromance on the set of The Rover, as Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce are reteaming for Brimstone. Pearce and Wasikowska have previously been announced, but it’s only now we’ve heard that Pattinson & Carice Van Houten will join them.
The movie is a suspenseful tale of guilt and retribution that unfolds at the end of the 19th century. It’s described as ‘a dark, violent and epic western about a young woman (and her family) whose lives change drastically when a diabolical preacher comes to town. From the moment the new reverend climbs the pulpit, Liz knows she and her family are in great danger.’
Martin Koolhoven, best known for his work on Winter in Wartime, is writing and directing the movie, which is set to shoot in May. The film is currently looking for buyers at the Berlin Film Festival.
