Anthony Hopkins' Solace lands director Alfonso Poyart
Brazilian director Afonso Poyart is in talks to direct the supernatural thriller Solace, which has Anthony Hopkins set to star.

The film centers on a doctor with psychic abilities, who hunts down a serial killer. No production start date has been set. Peter Morgan is currently revising the script, with Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson producing.

This project will mark the director's English-language debut, after gaining fanfare from his Brazilian hit 2 Coelhos (a.k.a. Two Rabbits), which he starred in, directed, wrote and produced.

This project is still in development.
