The story begins on Louis Drax's 9th birthday when a lifetime of curious mishaps culminates in the boy's near-fatal fall. Dr. Allan Pascal (Jamie Dornan) searches for the strange circumstances behind the young boy's accident and dark coincidences that have plagued his life.
Both Jamie Dornan and Barbara Hershey have appeared several times in ABC's hit show Once Upon a Time. However, they did not appear in any episodes together.
Molly Parker and Terry Chen were previously costars on House of Cards.
On the first day of production, a kissing scene was being shot between Gadon and Dornan. Dornan had the stomach flu and Gadon had strep throat. Both were anxious that they would make the other sick, but agreed to follow through with the scene once they realized that the other was ill, as well.
Anthony Minghella was preparing a version of this film at the time of his death.
