Celebrated commercials director Edson Oda is making his feature debut with Nine Days and rounded up a pretty impressive cast. Winston Duke (Us), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) and Bill Skarsgård (It) will lead the way in this intriguing project.
According to the official logline, Nine Days tells the story of a reclusive man, who “interviews prospective candidates, a personification of human souls, for the privilege that he once had – to be born.” Duke will take on the main role, and Beetz and Skarsgård will play the candidates, alongside Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange) and David Rysdahl (That’s Not Us).
Before plotting this project, Edson Oda won the Golden Lion and three Bronze Lions in the Cannes International Creativity Festival with his ad campaigns and received critical acclaim for his short film Malaria.
“[I am] thrilled to be working with such an incredible cast and amazing team. So grateful for all the support I have received. Nine Days is a very personal story to me, and I can’t imagine a better team to help me tell it,” Oda said in a statement.
