THE 9TH LIFE OF LOUIS DRAX is an upcoming supernatural thriller directed by Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D, Horns), based on Liz Jensen’s best-selling novel of the same title. The film stars Jamie Dornan, Sarah Gadon, Aaron Paul and Aiden Longworth.
After surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, Louis Drax (Longworth) 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.
