Colin Farrell (Total Recall, Fright Night, Seven Psychopaths) is closing a deal to star with Anthony Hopkins in Solace, the supernatural thriller that Afonso Poyart (Two Rabbits) will direct with production to begin in May, says Deadline.
“An FBI detective seeks the help of a retired and reclusive doctor, to try and solve a series of grisly murders. The doctor was a wiz at the murder game, but lost his mojo when his daughter died tragically. Desperate, the detective presses the doctor to come out of retirement for one more case.”
The film’s scripted by Sean Bailey, Ted Griffin, James Vanderbilt and Peter Morgan. It has percolating long enough that the film’s first credited writer, Bailey, is currently president of production at Disney. The film originated at New Line but never came together quite right, and producers Beau Flynn, Tripp Vinson and Matthias Emcke finally got it back and got the financing through Claudia Blumheuber’s Silver Reel. The film was once at New Line, and is now for sale at the EFM by FilmNation.
