Netflix Asks, ‘What Happened to Monday?’

We all fell in love with Noomi Rapace after her powerhouse performance in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. Every single time she’s cast, it’s a celebration, which is why this next title has me drooling in excitement. In the sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday?, Rapace plays seven twin sisters, who are named after the days of the week. Monday goes missing.

Dead Snow and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters‘s Tommy Wirkola directed the feature, which will put Rapace’s acting prowess on display, as she gets to play seven different roles. The trailer really hones in on this, focusing a lot on the seven siblings. We learned this morning that Netflix will be releasing the film exclusively on their streaming service this coming August.

Set in a world where families are allowed only one child due to overpopulation, a resourceful set of seven identical sisters must avoid governmental execution and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.

Willem Dafoe (John Wick, Antichrist) and Glenn Close also star in the film, with Marwan Kenzari (Accused, Reckless), Christian Rubeck (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) and Pal Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki). Close plays the fierce head of the Child Allocation Bureau, Nicolette Cayman.

It was produced by Vendome Pictures and Raffaella Productions and fully financed by SND, which will handle French distribution rights as well as international sales.

The script was written by Kerry Williamson (Alex Cross) and Max Botkin (Robosapien: Rebooted). Thanks to Fabien M. for the tip.

    “We all fell in love with Noomi Rapace after her powerhouse performance in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus”
    Not girl with the dragon tattoo then?

    This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about. She was already well established before Prometheus. Also, “Every single time she’s cast, it’s a celebration” Rupture? Passion?

    I’ve loved Noomi Rapace since Dragon Tattoo. This sounds really promising!

    • Ocelot006 .

      I more specifically loved Noomi since seeing her breasts in Dragon Tattoo.

      • Lady Bathory

        She’s a beautiful woman, that’s true…

        • Ocelot006 .

          But it’s when you finally see the breasts that you really know.

          • Lady Bathory

            I kinda had noticed that she’s beautiful before seeing her naked 😉

  • zombie84_41

    Looks dope to me.

  • J Jett

    this looks freaking awesome! i love Noomi! seeing her in this trailer reminded me how much i wished she had starred in COVENANT.

  • fasa96

    This reminded me a lot of Orphan Black, even though in the show they are clones. Looking forward to see this.

  • Satanzilla

    She’s fucking adorable, but this story does nothing for me.

  • Valak
