It has been a rough two weeks since the shocking Game of Thrones season finale. Time doesn’t heal all wounds, and many of us Jon Snow fans are still left with a gaping hole inside that only Kit Harington can fill.
(Alright, perhaps I could have worded that better, but you get the point: the people want, no, need more Kit Harington!)
And while he may not be returning to Game of Thrones for season 6 (a “fact” that I refuse to admit), we can still appreciate his acting chops as he takes on other creative endeavors.
Case in point: Brimstone.
Harington will be starring alongside Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce in the upcoming thriller as Samuel, an outlaw who helps Fanning’s character escape the evil clutches of Pearce!
There will be a mini Game of Thrones cast reunion on the set of Brimstone as well, as Harington’s ugh, I hate this word, former co-star Carice van Houten (Melisandre!!) will also be starring in the flick.
Although he’s sure to be in high demand now, Harington actually wasn’t the first choice for this role. He will be replacing Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson, who left the project due to conflicting interests.
Brimstone is scheduled for a 2016 release.
But just in case you can’t wait that long, you can see more of
Jon Snow Kit Harington on July 7th in HBO’s tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, where he stars alongside SNL‘s Andy Samberg.
But either way, we still want to see Jon Snow back. It’s gonna happen.
