New Line taps helmer for mystery thriller

New Line’s tapped Mark Pellington to helm mystery thriller “Solace” with Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilm producing along with Matthias Emcke.

Screenplay will be written by Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin with revisions by Jamie Vanderbilt.

Pellington’s credits include “The Mothman Prophecies,” “Arlington Road” and “U2 3D.” Flynn and Vinson, who are based at New Line, recently produced “Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D” with New Line and Walden Media.
