Colin Farrell, Anthony Hopkins Seek “Solace”

Colin Farrell is closing a deal to star in the long-gestating supernatural thriller “Solace” which Afonso Poyart (“Two Rabbits”) is attached to direct.

Farrell will play an FBI detective who seeks the help of a retired and reclusive doctor (Anthony Hopkins) to try and solve a series of grisly murders.

The doctor was a genius at solving murders until his daughter died tragically. Desperate, the detective presses the doctor to come out of retirement for one more case.

Penned by Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin with revisions by Jamie Vanderbilt and Peter Morgan, the project originated at New Line where at one point it was to be turned into a sequel to David Fincher’s “Se7en”.
