Noomi Rapace to Play Seven Different Sisters in Sci-Fi Drama

'What Happened to Monday?' set in overpopulated world

Noomi Rapace will star in sci-fi drama “What Happened to Monday?” in multiple roles as septuplet sisters.

“Hansel and Gretel: Witchunters” helmer Tommy Wirkola is directing “Monday,” based on the Black List script by Max Botkin.

Rapace will portray sisters who struggle to stay hidden in an overpopulated world where a one-child policy outlaws siblings.

“Although the role was originally written for a male, 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.

Raffaella De Laurentiis is producing through Raffaella Productions, along with Vendome’s Philippe Rousselet. Vendome is also financing the “Whatever Happened to Monday?”

Rapace portrayed Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium series films “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.” Credits include “Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows” and “Prometheus”; she will be seen next in “Child 44” and “Animal Rescue.”

Raffaella Productions’ projects include the untitled Shanghai story, based on the novel “The Cursed Piano,” with Barry Levinson directing. Vendome is developing “El Bulli,” a fictionalized film based on Spanish chef Ferran Adria, and “The Widow,” a thriller directed by David Slade; and “Alive and Well,” directed by Ken Kwapis from a screenplay written by David Hubbard.

Rapace is represented by CAA, Shelley Browning at Magnolia Entertainment and attorney Howard Fishman.
