Brazilian would move long-in-development Anthony Hopkins-starrer forward

New Line is moving forward on Anthony Hopkins’ long-in-development supernatural pic “Solace,” entering talks with Brazilian director Afonso Poyart to helm.

Pic has Hopkins attached to star with Peter Morgan doing the most recent script revise. Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are producing.

Story revolves around a doctor with psychic abilities who hunts down a serial killer. No production start date has been set.

The pic would mark the domestic directorial debut for Poyart, who has gained a lot of buzz with the recent release of his film “2 Coelhos” which he starred in, directed, penned, produced, and edited.

Even with “Solace” on his plate, Poyart is also developing a remake of “2 Coelhos” that Tango Pictures recently acquired the remake rights to and he will exec produce.

He is repped by UTA and manager Brent Travers.
