New Line Cinema is moving foward with the supernatural tale Solace, featuring Anthony Hopkins in the lead. Today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Brazilian director Afonso Poyart is in talks to direct.

Originally announced for development in 2008 with Mark Pellington (The Mothman Prophecies, Arlington Road) directing, the project deals with a clairvoyant doctor who is enlisted by the police to help catch a serial killer. Hopkins will play the doctor, John Clancy.

Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilm are producing alongside Matthias Emcke and Thomas Augsberger. When the project was originally announced, the script had been written by Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin with rewrites by James Vanderbilt. It has since been rewritten by Peter Morgan.

Poyart is best known for writing, directing and starring in 2 Coelhos, which hit Brazilian theaters earlier this year.
