Afonso Poyart will direct, with filming set to start in May.
Story follows an FBI agent who links up with a doctor with psychic abilities to hunt down a serial killer. It is unknown what role Cornish would play.
“Solace” has been in development limbo for some time (Bailey wrote the script before becoming president of production at Disney) but it now looks ready to rev up.
Cornish has gradually moved into leading-lady status, and her roles in MGM’s “Robocop” reboot and Ridley Scott’s Discovery Channel miniseries “Klondike” seems to sustain that argument.
She is repped by WME and Untitled Management. Farrell is repped by CAA. Hopkins is repped by UTA. Poyart is repped by UTA and Ascend Entertainment.
