It’s just another manic Monday for Noomi Rapace…
The 33-year-old half-Spanish actress is teaming up with Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters director Tommy Wirkola for What Happened To Monday?
Rapace will portray septuplet sisters who struggle to stay hidden in an overpopulated world where a one-child policy outlaws siblings in the sci-fi drama.
Wirkola said he originally envisioned the protagonist(s) as male, but “I was struck by the complexities of having an actor portray seven characters and immediately knew Noomi was the ideal actor – male or female – to bring them to life,” said Wirkola in a statement.
That puts the breakout star of the original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in the rare company of female talent like Angelina Jolie, who succeeded Tom Cruise as the star of Salt.
The script for What Happened To Monday? was written by Max Botkin.
Rapace, who signed with Creative Artists Agency this past August, will next star in Child 44 and Animal Rescue.
