I don’t know how I’m going to contain my excitement for this film.  I loved spaghetti westerns too – not that I’m expecting this to be a comedy but the Trinity films with Terence Hill & Bud Spencer are some of my favourite classics to come out of the 70s.  Anyway, I digress.  Martin Koolhoven was recently interviewed by Dutch newspaper @nrccultuur and we find out a little bit more about Martin, Rob and Brimstone.  Here are some extracts (sorry I used Google translate):

Ha I think most of us have to put our hands up for this comment below:

“Then last weekend when it was announced that “former” teen idol Robert Pattinson had a role in Brimstone Koolhoven directly received several hundred ‘fairly active’ Twitter followers.”

About Martin and Brimstone:

…  He goes out of seventy days of shooting in May, June and July on locations in Canada and Europe.   Koolhoven: “Guy has already started with a dialect coach, Mia soon begins to learn sign language.” The budget of 10 million euros he thinks with “this cast probably be able to pick up in Hollywood, but I do like to keep control and final cut for the film “.

Brimstone is the first film of Koolhoven since Oorlogswinter that attracted nearly 840,000 visitors in 2008 and was also viewed in other countries. In the previous seven years Koolhoven had five feature films and a made for TV movie, from arthouse film Amnesia to multicultural comedy The schnitzelparadijs . “I was then offered of everything, including a British romcom. I was rummaging through, but I was wondering: what do I really want? That was a western. “

According to De Telegraaf:

“Liz (Mia Wasikowska) leads a happy life with her husband and children. She can not talk, but is nevertheless a valued member of the community. Everything changes when a new pastor (Guy Pearce), who loves everything that Liz is trying to destroy, appears in the village.

“The recordings will take place this spring in Canada and Europe. Brimstone will be seen in the autumn of 2016 in the Dutch cinema.”

And @MartinKoolhoven has responded with this little tease:

It’s been a little slow on the uptake but it’s finally there

Also, Suziekew managed to find this little tidbit about Rob’s role in Brimstone from @Rollissimo who we posted previously interviewed Rob.  Like I have already mentioned, I would have gone to see Guy in Brimstone anyway, so Rob being in it is a massive bonus.

and how great does that cast look together!

Filmpjekijken.com  sat down with Martin Koolhoven over lunch and spoke about Brimstone.  Here are some interesting extracts (no Rob mentions) but it gives us a little more information about the film.  I’ve used Google Translate obviously, but you should click on the link to read the entire article:

In December 2012 you spoke extensively with filmpjekijken.com about Brimstone . Why has it taken more than two years before you can finally start producing? 
First there was a large part of the funding round and when I went to cast. I sent the script to various agencies in Hollywood. But I just did not intervene. Still I was fobbed off with comments like ‘next week we read the next week. “ That weird guy with the beard from the Netherlands was simply not taken seriously.

How did you end up anyway with your foot in the door? 
My partner Els Vandevorst befriended producer Nik Powell who had read the script, he was thrilled and immediately offered his help. “You have to ask a good casting director,” he said and gave me a list of names. One of them I found very interesting: Des Hamilton, who also assisted other European directors as Lars Von Trier and Nicolas Winding Refn. “This is the best script I’ve read in a decade,” Des told me. “I want to do this job, but not one or two characters. All Of It ‘.

Did you have Guy Pearce and Mia Wasikowska equal in mind? 
I had pre-made lists for Des with the names of three actors and two actresses that I would like for the main roles. I called for my preferences, with the agents of two of the three behind me. I then finally for Guy Pearce ( LA Confidential , Memento , Iron Man 3 ) selected, actually since The Adventures of  Priscilla: Queen of the Desert I’m a fan of his. He has done so many very different roles. Mia Wasikowski also ( Stoker ,The Double , Tracks ) was my first choice, while the other actress of my list also wanted.

Who was that?
Guy Pearce. He told me: “whatever happens, this is the movie I‘m going to do next year.” He is very involved and enthusiastic. Look Koolhoven shows photos of the actor on his phone he keeps sending me pictures like this with the question, “what do you think of this look? He is already very busy himself learning an accent.

*Twirls* Rob has a new film with Guy and Mia.  I think Rob just wants to keep working with Australians.  Do you blame him.

From Embankment Films:


Retribution is coming…

Prepare yourself. For something very special…

A triumphant epic of survival set in the searing wilds of the Badlands, the menacing inferno of the old American West.

A tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth.

Our heroine is Liz, carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, accused of a crime she didn’t commit, hunted by a vengeful Preacher – a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis.

But Liz is a genuine survivor; she’s no victim – a woman of fearsome strength who responds with astonishing bravery to claim the better life she and her daughter deserve.

Fear not.  Retribution is coming.”

IMDbPro only has Mia listed as cast.  Will update with more info when it comes to hand.

From ScreenDaily:

“Koolhoven, director of Second World War epic Winter in Wartime, directs from his own script which will be shot byBullhead and The Drop cinematographer Nicolas Karakatsanis.

The film is due to start shooting in May 2015.​​”

and from the article announcing Rob’s involvement:

“Set to shoot in May 2015, the film will follow a heroine on the run from her past and a diabolical preacher. Robert Pattinson will play an outlaw. … Guy Pearce plays a hunter who unleashes hell. Martin directs a highly emotional, gripping and unique story of a mesmerising woman who battles the vengeance of a zealot.””


“Pattinson plays an outlaw who has a crucial influence on this tale of retribution. “
