Psychological mystery thriller The 9th Life Of Louis Drax has been stuck in a similar limbo to its titular main character, awaiting release since production back in 2014.
The film begins on Louis Drax's (Aiden Longworth) 9th birthday, when he miraculously survives a near fatal fall. His doctor Allan Pascal (Dornan) finds himself tangled between his professional responsibility and his growing affections for the boy's mother (Sarah Gadon). When Louis' father (Aaron Paul) comes under suspicion, Pascal realises other mysterious forces may be at work...
We can expect plenty of other twists and turns from this one, with Oliver Platt (X-Men: First Class) playing Louis' psychologist, Dr. Perez, Molly Parker (The Road) Parker as Detective Dalton, investigating the case and Barbara Hershey (Black Swan) on as Violet, Louis' grandmother. It's all part of the project originated by Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) and shouldered by his son Max after his father's untimely death. He wrote the script based on Liz Jensen's novel and has been shepherding it ever since.
The 9th Life Of Louis Drax arrives in the UK in September.
