“I can’t stop him, which begs a more important question — is he really worth stopping?” Lionsgate has dropped the trailer for its upcoming psychological thriller Solace. Directed by Afonso Poyart with a script from Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin, the pic stars Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Abbie Cornish and Colin Farrell.
The plot: When FBI Special Agent Joe Merriwether (Morgan) is unable to solve a series of homicides, he decides to enlist the help of his former colleague Dr. John Clancy (Hopkins), a retired physician with psychic powers. The reclusive Clancy, who wants nothing to do with the case, changes his mind after seeing disturbingly violent visions of the ultimate demise of Joe’s partner, FBI Special Agent Katherine Cowles (Cornish). When Clancy’s exceptional intuitive powers put him on the trail of a suspect, Charles Ambrose (Farrell), the doctor soon realizes his abilities are no match against the extraordinary powers of this vicious murderer on a mission.
Solace was produced by Beau Flynn, Thomas Augsberger, Tripp Vinson, Matthias Emcke, and Claudia Bluemhuber. Executive producers are Bailey, Jacob Pechenik, Gerd Schepers, and Anthony Hopkins.
The film has already grossed $22M internationally but it was stalled in the U.S., one of several caught in the bankruptcy woes of Relativity. Lionsgate’s Grindstone Entertainment recently picked up U.S. distribution rights and Lionsgate Premiere will release the film in theaters and on demand December 16.
