TORONTO — Mark Pellington has signed to direct “Solace,” a mystery thriller for New Line.
Contrafilm’s Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson, who were behind the New Line/Walden sleeper hit “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” are producing.
The story revolves around a former doctor with psychic abilities who is drawn into a serial killer case only to find that the killer also is a psychic, leading to a showdown between the two who can detect each other’s every move.
Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin wrote the initial script, which was revised by Jamie Vanderbilt (“Zodiac”).
Matthias Emcke also is producing.
Richard Brener and Michael Disco will oversee production for the company.
Pellington, who made a name for himself in the music video world before making the transition to features, last directed “Henry Poole Is Here” and the concert film “U2 3D.”
Pellington, repped by UTA and 3 Arts, also helmed “The Mothman Prophecies” and “Arlington Road.”
