Bookreaders and TV show viewers alike are debating whether Kit Harrington’s belovedcharacter in Game of Thrones, Jon Snow, survived the season finale or not.Whatever Snow’s fate may be, one thing is for sure: Kit Harrington’s roads will inevitably crossed paths again with Carice van Houten’s, the Dutch actress whoplays Lady Melissandre, the priestess of the God of Light in Game of Thrones.

KitHarrington is reportedly replacing Robert Pattinson (Harry Potter, Twilight),who suddenly left the movie, Brimstone, for unknown reasons. Brimstone is anupcoming western thriller that tells the story of a girl named Liz (played byDakota Fanning) who is being chased by the vengeful Preacher (played by GuyPearce).

The movie’s official website describes the plot as a survival tale inthe cruel American Wild West, and an epic story about one woman’s defiantresistance.

Along withHarrington, Paul Anderson (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows), Jack Roth (TheGreat Train Robbery) and Carla Juri (Wetlands) also joined the cast, althoughthere’s not much information about their characters yet. Harrington will playa guy named Samuel, who at first glance seems to be a potential love interest forLiz, while Carice van Houten will appear as a woman called Anna.

Principalphotography has just begun, and the shootings will take place in Romania, Spainand Germany. Brimstone is directed by Martin Koolhoven, whose last movie,Winter in Wartime, came out back in 2008.

Right afterthe season finale of Game of Thrones ended with a shocking twist, KitHarrington answered a couple of questions in which he emphasized that he wouldbe focusing on movies in the near future, since his character is no longerneeded in the show. Of course everyone took his words with a grain of salt,especially after he was seen in Belfast, where Game of Thrones used to shootthe scenes for the Wall.

Now that heis leaving Northern Ireland behind to be reunited with ‘Lady Melissandre’on the set of Brimstone, fans can continue to create theories about how JonSnow could have survived the betrayal of his brothers of the Watch. Maybe theactor and actress can come up with something brand new that the creators, DavidBenioff and D.B. Weiss, will be fond of, and change their mind about the fateof the bastard son of the Ned Stark.
