Anthony Hopkins to Star in "Solace," a Sequel to "Se7en"

Posted: September 7th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Anthony Hopkins to Star in "Solace," a Sequel to "Se7en"Submit Comment
Variety has learned that Anthony Hopkins has signed on to star in "Solace," in which he will play a former doctor with psychic abilities who works for the FBI and is drawn into a unique serial killer case that pits him against a formidable foe.

All this sounds familiar, since Hopkins played a doctor who helps the FBI catch a serial killer in "Silence of the Lambs." But this film was actually originally a sequel to David Fincher's "Se7en."

After the first "Se7en" film, New Line immediately wanted a sequel, but Fincher refused to come back. The studio continued without the helmer and in 2002 picked up a spec script called "Solace" from Ted Griffin (Ocean's Eleven). The script was rewritten with the doctor (now played by Hopkins) becoming Morgan Freeman's character.

For whatever reason, the sequel never happened and the studio decided to just keep Griffin's original "Solace" script and turn it into a film.

So then that headline technically isn't true then is it? There you go again with the misleading sh*t WP

A sequel to Se7en? WHY? That'd be like making a sequel to I dunno... Shawshank!

A sequel to Se7en? Yeah, great idea considering that at the end of Se7en, Spacey is dead, Pitt is in prison and Freeman is retired. Brilliant idea indeed Hollywood! No wonder Fincher refused to direct it

I say bring Morgan Freeman back as Alex Cross and in the first scene he shoots Tyler Perry at point blank range in the face for trying to steal Freeman's role. That'd be best. As for a Se7en sequel, aint gonna happen so I'm not worried.

So it's not a sequel to Se7en at all. Good.

Tho if they ever did a sequel to Se7en, they should go with the storyline of the comic books. It's the same plotline told from the point of view of John Doe stalking and murdering his victims.
