According to Variety, Bruce Willis is set to star in Solace, a New Line thriller scripted by Ted Griffin and Sean Bailey.

The picture will start production in July.

Willis will play a doctor with psychic powers who's enlisted by the police to help catch a serial killer. It turns out the killer has similar gifts.

New Line's Toby Emmerich and Richard Brener are steering the pic and are expected to set a director this week.

The thriller has been a high priority since the studio paid seven figures four years ago for the script by Ocean's Eleven scribe Griffin and Bailey.
