Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins to team up for serial killer thriller Solace

Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins are now set to team up for the serial-killer thriller, SOLACE, for director Alfonso Poyart (TWO RABBITS) where the duo will have a bit of a role-reversal thing going on.  Farrell will star as the serial killer, while Hopkins will play a retired doctor who is brought in to help catch him.  The role of the F.B.I. agent working with Hopkins has yet to be cast.

Here's the synopsis (from Deadline):

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.

I'd never heard of Poyart until today, so after a little digging I found his trailer for TWO RABBITS, which is absolutely insane looking.  His involvement in this project, which sounds like a pretty generic serial killer pic, could very well be the one thing that plucks it from monotony. 

Check this shit out:

Colin Farrell will next be seein DEAD MAN DOWN, opening on March 8, 2013, while Anthony Hopkins has RED 2 on August 2, 2013 and THOR: THE DARK WORLD on November 8, 2013.  No word on release for SOLACE, as it's still in development.

Extra Tidbit: I'm already seeing visions of Tarsem's The Cell for this. What about you?

Ei8ht

I also remember when this was supposed to be a pseudo-sequel to David Fincher's "Se7en". Where Morgan Freeman's Lt. Somerset is teamed up w/ the aforementioned clairvoyant doctor to catch another serial killer.

Hopkins is pretty much the only draw for me seeing this movie. After awesome turns in Tigerland, Minority Report & Phone Booth...since then i've kinda lost all faith in Colin Farrell. Still sounds pretty good if it's (forgive the pun) executed well.

Seven Part 2

This was the film that was written and subsequently turned into Ei8ht the sequel to seven where all of a sudden Morgan Freeman was consulting with the FBI with psychic powers. They passed realizing it was a terrible idea. I'm not surprised they're going ahead with this, I'm just glad that they aren't ruining Seven by calling this a sequel.

It's time for a change

I'm up for Colin to play a baddie. I think it's time and he has the chops for it. I like his current route of action or anti-hero role and would love to see him get his own franchise (whatever happened to Echelon?) but we have yet to really see him go all Patrick Bateman on us yet. Also, saw 7 psychopaths over the weekend. Not nearly as good as In Bruges, but still hysterical and genius in its' own right...

Sounds cool. But I thought Colin was playing the FBI detective.

I hope Colin makes a comeback with his new films.
