Some more Rob movie news today, this time Brimstone. New Sparta Films have announced that they are financing Brimstone and that it will shoot in Germany and Spain in June with a second period of shooting in Romania later in the year.
From New Sparta Films Website :
New Sparta Films (NSF) is delighted to announce its involvement in the financing of Martin Koolhoven’s Brimstone.
“Retribution is coming”
The film, written and directed by Koolhoven and produced by Els Vandervorst of N279 Productions, stars Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson and Carice van Houten and is set to commence shooting in Germany and Spain in June 2015 with a second period of shooting in Romania later in the year.
Brimstone is a triumphant epic of survival, set in the searing wilds of the badlands, the menacing inferno of the Old American West. It is a tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a Hell on earth.
Set against the backdrop of the late 19th Century frontier territory lawlessness, this is a powerful epic thriller with a compelling story and an engaging central female character on a life-threatening mission to escape from, and exact revenge upon, an enigmatic, evil preacher. It is a dark tale, but gripping and emotionally fulfilling.
