Solace is a 2015 American mystery thriller film directed by Afonso Poyart and starring Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Abbie Cornish. The film's script was originally planned and developed as a sequel to the 1995 thriller film Se7en, but the idea was eventually scrapped, and Solace was completed instead. The film was released on December 16, 2016, by Lionsgate Premiere. The film is about a psychic doctor, John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), who works with an FBI special agent (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in search of serial killer Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell).
Having lived two years in isolation since the death of his daughter, Clancy is asked by his friend Joe, an FBI special agent, to help him solve several murders committed by a serial killer. The problem is that Ambrose is also psychic, and far ahead of Clancy.Anthony Hopkins as John Clancy
