Noomi Rapace May Take On Seven Roles In What Happened To Monday?

Actress Rapace arrives for the screening of the film "Un Prophete" at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival

According to Variety, actress Noomi Rapace has just signed on for the sci-fi flick What Happened To Monday? Based on Max Botkin’s Black List script, the film has an extremely intriguing premise, which might see the actress taking on seven different roles.

The story follows seven sisters who live in an over-populated world where a one-child only policy is being enforced. In order to stay hidden and avoid execution by their government, the sisters must “overcome their own differences.” Unfortunately, those are all the plot details that we have for now but apparently, Botkin’s script has a lot of buzz surrounding it, so this is definitely a project worth keeping your eye on.

As mentioned above, Rapace will play all seven sisters, an ambitious challenge for the actress no doubt. In the director’s chair will be Tommy Wirkola, who previously gave us Dead Snow and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. Aside from that though, no further names have been attached to the film.

There’s not much information on this one just yet but already our interest has been piqued. Rapace is a fantastic actress and seeing her take on a challenge like this is very exciting. Having an actor play several different roles in one film is not something that happens very often and though it has worked out in the past (Cloud Atlas), there have been many instances where it has gone horribly wrong. Though Rapace is more than capable of pulling this off, my one worry is Wirkola. I’m not sure if he’s the right director for the job and I’m actually a bit surprised that he’s attached to this type of film.
