Move over Buffalo Bill — Anthony Hopkins, who won an Oscar for playing murderous Dr. Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, is heading to the other side of the law, as the Wolfman and The Rite thesp is in final negotiations to star in New Line’s serial killer pic Solace, writes Variety.
“Hopkins will play John Clancy, a former doctor with psychic abilities who works for the FBI and is drawn into a unique serial killer case that pits him against a formidable foe.”
There’s no director locked yet. Mark Pellington was previously attached with star Bruce Willis.
Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin wrote the original draft of the script, which was then rewritten by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac). Peter Morgan wrote the most recent draft, and production is slated to start early next year.
