Since playing the Comedian in Zack Snyder’s underrated “Watchmen”, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has struggled. There was the underrated “The Losers” followed by bad films like “The Possession” and “Red Dawn”. Now he is set to get back on track by joining the film “Solace”. The film also stars Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell.

From Hopkins will be starring as a former doctor with psychic abilities who’s recruited by a veteran FBI agent (Morgan) to track down a serial killer (Farrell). The trouble arises when the specialist realizes that the killer also has psychic abilities, meaning the two men can detect the other’s next move.

This has some potential. Hopefully it won’t quite be like “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”.
