First Look: Anthony Hopkins & Jeffrey Dean Morgan Find 'Solace'
It's not often that indie films dabble in the supernatural or sci-fi elements, but when they do, that's when some of the greatest movie magic can happen. One intriguing new indie on the way is Solace, from 2 Rabbits director Afonso Poyart, which is finishing shooting this week in Atlanta and just debuted a first look photo on line. Anthony Hopkins is on the right side of the law as a psychic crime analyst called out of retirement to help a seasoned FBI agent (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his young partner (Abbie Cornish) solve a series of grisly and bizarre murders by a killer with supernatural powers played by Colin Farrell.
Here's the first look at Afonso Poyart's Solace from THR:
Poyart says, "This film has the perfect balance of structure, story and strong characters. I was particularly attracted to the opportunity to explore the cinematic potential of the script and to step into the mind’s eye of someone with psychic abilities, played by Anthony Hopkins, and visualize what he sees. Working with Tony, Jeff, Abbie and Colin has been a dream, and I couldn't ask for a better crew to bring it all together." Plus, the script has passed through some impressive writing hands with Walt Disney Studios president of production Sean Bailey sharing a screenplay credit with Ted Griffin (Ocean's Eleven) and James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man) with the most recent draft coming from Peter Morgan (The Queen). So this should be an indie to look forward to with great anticipation. Maybe it will be ready to premiere at Sundance 2014?
