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‘ Tommy Wirkola directed the feature, which will put Rapace’s acting prowess on display, as she gets to play seven different roles. Netflix will be releasing the film exclusively on their streaming service this Friday, August 18th.
“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, Death Note) 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).
