WATCH: Jamie Dornan plays sexy doctor in ‘9th Life of Louis Drax’ trailer
50 Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan is trading in the harness for a lab coat in his latest project, The 9th Life of Louis Drax.
Dornan plays acclaimed neurologist Dr Allan Pascal in the film, which focuses on a young boy who, after surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday.
While police investigate the cause of Louis’ near-fatal fall and the whereabouts of his violent father Peter [Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul], Dornan’s character uses unorthodox techniques to try to tap into the boy’s unconscious mind and reveal the truth about the events that led to his condition.
As he’s drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of Louis’ seeming ability to cheat death, the doctor finds himself falling for Louis’ mother Natalie [Sarah Gadon, 11.22.63, Cosmopolis] – as illustrated below 😉
As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.
The film is of course based on Liz Jensen’s best-selling novel of the same title, meaning anyone who’s scrubbed up on fiction of this century might know where it’s all going.
Nevertheless, we’re always happy to see a bit of Dornan and Paul on large screens, so we’ll be headed to check this one out in more ways than one when it hits cinemas on September 2nd.
