Lionsgate‘s Summit Premiere gave us a chance to do a set of exclusive video interviews with the heavy-hitters of The 9th Life of Louis Drax, the adaptation of Liz Jensen‘s best-selling novel, including stars Jamie Dornan, Aaron Paul and director Alexandre Aja. Check it out in the player below!
A psychological thriller, The 9th Life of Louis Drax stars Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Fall), Sarah Gadon (Enemy, Dracula Untold), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, Need For Speed), Oliver Platt (Chef, Kill the Messenger), Molly Parker (The Road, Deadwood), Barbara Hershey (Once Upon a Time, Damien) and, in the title role, young actor Aiden Longworth.
After surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, Louis Drax 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 (Paul), acclaimed neurologist Dr. Allan Pascal (Dornan) 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. But 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 (Gadon). As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.
The 9th Life of Louis Drax is directed by Alexandre Aja (Horns, The Hills Have Eyes) and written by Max Minghella. Look for it to hit theaters on September 2.
