Variety reports that Jamie Dornan has signed on with Miramax to play Dr. Pascal in the screen adaptation of the 9th Life of Louis Drax by Liz Jensen. The story has been described as a psychological thriller.
I love a psychological thriller, though not alone in my apartment at night. I guess I’ll have to go with some friends to watch in the theatre, sacrifices!
Filming starts in October in Vancouver.
Here’s the book description from the publisher:
Louis Drax is a boy like no other. He is brilliant and strange, and every year something violent seems to happen to him. On his ninth birthday, Louis goes on a picnic with his parents and falls off a cliff. The details are shrouded in mystery. Louis’s mother is shell-shocked; his father has vanished. And after some confusion Louis himself, miraculously alive but deep in a coma, arrives at Dr. Pascal Dannachet’s celebrated coma clinic…Full of astonishing twists and turns, this is a masterful tale of the secrets the human mind can hide.
