“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.

Brimstone is produced by Els Vandevorst (Dogville) and Uwe Schott (Cloud Atlas). Coproduced by Paul Trijbits, Antonino Lombardo, Manuel Chiche and Peter Hiltunen.

    I always love a good Western. From what I’ve seen, this looks like it could be pretty damn good. I look forward to getting the opportunity to see it in March.

    Looking forward to this one.
    Nothing like a good, grim western.
