Actor boards supernatural thriller.

Heat Vision has learned that ‘Watchmen’ star Jeffery Dean Morgan has been cast alongside Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell in the Afonso Poyart-directed supernatural thriller ‘Solace.’

Scripted by Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin, with rewrites by James Vanderbilt and Peter Morgan, the plot centres on John Clancy (Hopkins), a former doctor with psychic abilities who is drawn into a serial-killer case, only to find that the killer (played by Farrell) is a psychic as well — so the two men can detect each other’s moves.

Morgan will be playing a veteran FBI agent who is heading the investigation and recruits Clancy.

Flynn Picture Company’s Beau Flynn, Tripp Vinson, and Thomas Augsberger are producing with filming set to commence May 20th in Detroit.
