Kit Harington replaces Robert Pattinson in Brimstone thriller

It seems that Robert Pattinson won’t be starring in the upcoming thriller “Brimstone” after all. Instead, former “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington will be taking the lead.

Harington joins an impressive list of actors in the film, including Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce in starring roles. Pattinson agreed to the film back when “Brimstone” was being shopped at the Berlin Film Festival, but now Harington has stepped in to replace him.

As for Harington’s new character, Kit will be playing the role of outlaw Samuel. Carice van Houten (who plays Valkyrie on “Game of Thrones”) will also be part of the cast.

The film mostly centers on Fanning’s character Liz, who is running from her past and the dangers of a new Preacher in her town (played by Pearce).

Paul Anderson, Jack Roth and Carla Juri round out the rest of the major players. The film will be the latest feature from Writer-director Martin Koolhoven,
