The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Noomi Rapace, has been cast as septuplets in What Happened to Monday?
The film follows “septuplet sisters who struggle to stay hidden in an overpopulated world were a one-child policy outlaws siblings. The seven must overcome their own differences and avoid government execution in order to solve the disappearance of one of their own.”
Tommy Wirkola (Hansel & Gretel: Witchhunters) is directing from a script by Max Botkin.
Here’s Wirkola on why he chose Rapace:
“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.”
