Centering on a doctor with psychic powers who is enlisted by the police to track a serial killer, Afonso Poyart’s Solace was once intended to be a sequel to David Fincher’s Se7en!
Now, Lionsgate Premiere is behind the film that stars Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Abbie Cornish, and Marley Shelton. It will be released in limited theaters on December 16th, which also means a VOD release around the same time.
Here’s the first trailer for the film to go along with the trailer and synopsis:
When FBI Special Agent Joe Merriwether (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is unable to solve a series of homicides, he decides to enlist the help of his former colleague Dr. John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), a retired physician with psychic powers. The reclusive Clancy, who shuttered his practice and retreated from the world following the death of his daughter and subsequent break-up of his marriage, wants nothing to do with the case. He soon changes his mind after seeing disturbingly violent visions of Joe’s partner, FBI Special Agent Katherine Cowles’s (Abbie Cornish) ultimate demise. When Clancy’s exceptional intuitive powers put him on the trail of a suspect, Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell), the doctor soon realizes his abilities are no match against the extraordinary powers of this vicious murderer on a mission.
