is set to re-team with her Seven Psychopaths
co-star Colin Farrell
in Afonso Poyart
, also starring Anthony Hopkins
and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
The upcoming thriller was actually originally a sequel to David Fincher’s Se7en
that has been kicking around for a decade and New Line Cinema decided to just keep Ted Griffin
‘s original Solace
script and turn it into a film.
Story follows an FBI agent (Farrell) who links up with a former doctor (Hopkins) with psychic abilities to hunt down a serial killer. It is unknown what role Cornish would play, but let’s hope it actually gives her something substantial to do unlike her appearance in Seven Psychopaths.
Dean Morgan will play a vet FBI agent heading the investigation of a series of grisly murders who recruits Hopkins’ character to help catch the killer.
The Brazilian director (2 Rabbits) will get behind the camera with filming set to start in May.
Cornish who played Sweet Pea in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch
has moved step-by-step into leading-lady status with her roles in MGM’s Robocop forthcoming remake and Ridley Scott’s Discovery Channel miniseries ‘Klondike.’
