Despite the fact he feels a bit like he’s been coasting for the past decade, Anthony Hopkins is still a name to conjure with. Now he’s putting together a supernatural thriller called Solace, and Variety reports Brazilian director Afonso Poyart is now in talks to direct.
The film centres on a doctor (Hopkins) with psychic abilities, who hunts down a serial killer. No production start date has been set. The Queen’s Peter Morgan is currently revising his script, with Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson producing.
This project will mark Poyart’s English-language debut, after gaining attention for his Brazilian hit 2 Coelhos (a.k.a. Two Rabbits), which he starred in, directed, wrote and produced.
