SOLACE, the psychic serial killer thriller from director Afonso Poyart, has been on the shelf since 2013 due to the bankruptcy of Relativity Studios. However, Lionsgate Premiere has picked up the film for a quiet release later this year! The flick, which pits Colin Farrell against Anthony Hopkins, will arrive in theaters and on VOD on December 16th, possibly because co-star Jeffrey Dean Morgan has become a phenomenon recently thanks to his role in The Walking Dead and the upcoming thriller DESIERTO, which hits this weekend.
Check out the international trailer below!
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.
SOLACE was written by Sean Bailey & Ted Griffin.
