The great Willem Dafoe has joined Prometheus star Noomi Rapace and Glenn Close in sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday?, which began principal photography at the Castel Film Studios in Bucharest on July 23, says ScreenDaily.
Dead Snow and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters‘s Tommy Wirkola is directing the feature, which is produced by Vendome Pictures and Raffaella Productions and fully financed by SND, which will handle French distribution rights as well as international sales.
“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.”
Rapace plays all seven sisters, who are named after the days of the week.
Close plays the fierce head of the Child Allocation Bureau, Nicolette Cayman.
New additional cast includes Marwan Kenzari (Accused, Reckless), Christian Rubeck (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) and Pal Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki).
The script was written by Kerry Williamson (Alex Cross) and Max Botkin (Robosapien: Rebooted).
