Fifty Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dornan will be swapping his handcuffs and whip for a stethoscope in a new thriller.
The 32-year-old Northern Irish hunk has been confirmed as leading the cast of Miramax movie The 9th Life Of Louis Drax.
He will play a doctor in the psychological thriller, which is based on a best-selling novel by Liz Jensen.
Set to begin filming in Vancouver in October, the film will be directed by Alexandre Aja - the filmmaker behind Horns and The Hills Have Eyes.
It was originally to be directed by the late Anthony Minghella, with the screenplay being written by his son Max Minghella and Tim Bricknell among the producers.
Minghella said: "Tim and I are thrilled this deeply personal project is being brought to fruition with passion and integrity.
"We look forward to collaborating with Alex and Miramax to create a truly original movie that will captivate and surprise audiences."
And the director added: "Max's script takes us on a very emotional journey through the deep recesses of the mind and on a suspenseful Hitchcockian ride.
"I was drawn to the poignant family drama and the supernatural elements, and am excited to bring this rich and complex story to life."
