'Prometheus' star Noomi Rapace (below) has signed up to appear in the new indie sci-fi 'What Happened to Monday?' from Vendome and Raffaella Productions. Rapace will play multiple roles in the movie which takes place in a world where families are allowed only one child due to overpopulation. Rapace will play septuplet sisters who must overcome their own differences and avoid government execution in order to solve the disappearance of one of their own. The project will be directed by 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' and 'Dead Snow' helmer Tommy Wirkola who will direct from a script written by Max Botkin. Rapace's role was originally written for a male but was rewritten when Rapace met with Wirkola. As for the title...we have to assume it refers to the Monday's Child nursery rhyme and that this is the sibling whom has gone missing.
"Although the role was originally written for a male," says Wirkola "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,"
