According to Variety, Hopkins is in final negotiations to star in New Line's serial killer film Solace.
Hopkins will play John Clancy, a former doctor with psychic abilities who works for the FBI and is drawn into a unique serial killer case that pits him against a formidable foe.
Though there's no director attached yet, former Contrafilm partners Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are producing the elevated genre pic, while Matthias Emcke and Thomas Augsberger (Mr. Brooks) will exec produce.
Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin wrote the original draft of the script, which was then rewritten by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac). Peter Morgan wrote the most recent draft, and production is slated to start early next year.
Look for more soon!
