It’s only a couple of weeks until Jamie Dornan’s star power is likely to shoot through the roof thanks to his role as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades Of Grey, but he’s already got a new movie in the works, as he’s starring in The 9th Life of Louis Drax.
Now the first image from the movie has arrived, via Empire, showing the actor hooked up to a machine while in a hospital.
Based on based on Liz Jensen’s best-selling novel, the 9th Life of Louis Drax begins on Louis Drax’s (Aiden Longworth) 9th birthday, when he miraculously survives a near fatal fall. His doctor Allan Pascal (Jamie 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 realizes other mysterious forces may be at work that test the boundaries of fantasy and reality.
Alexandre Aja is directing from a screenplay by Max Minghella (who took on the project following the death of his father, English Patient director Anthony Minghella, who’d previously been developing the movie).
The movie should be in cinemas later this year.
