Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of an interesting sounding action sci-fi called What Happened To Monday, and he joins Noomi Rapace and Glenn Close. The film is directed by Tommy Wirkola, the chap behind Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (I enjoyed it!), and Dead Snow and its sequel.
Deadline reported the news, stating that Wirkola is directing from a script written by Kerry Williamson (Alex Cross) and Max Botkin (Robosapien: Rebooted). The film is being produced by Raffaella Productions’ Raffaella De Laurentiis and Vendôme Pictures’ Philippe Rousselet and Fabrice Gianfermi. Guy Stodel from Vendôme Pictures along with Thierry Desmichelle from SND will serve as exec producers.
In a future where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy, seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman, enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman. Taught by their grandfather who raised and named them — Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday — each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home.
