Colin Farrell has signed on to join Anthony Hopkins in the upcoming supernatural thriller SOLACE, Deadline has announced.
Afonso Poyart is set to direct the film, written by Sean Bailey, Ted Griffin, James Vanderbilt, and Peter Morgan. As of now, distribution rights are still up for grabs, though Silver Reel is set to finance.
According to Deadline, the film is billed as: "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. Farrell will play the serial killer, putting him mano a mano against Hopkins."
Farrell can next be seen alongside Jessica Chastain in Liv Ullmann's film adaptation of Miss Julie.
