Dafoe, Close Join Sci-Fi Tale “Monday”

Willem Dafoe and Glenn Close are set to join Tommy Wirkola’s sci-fi tale “What Happened to Monday?” which is set in a future where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy.

Seven identical sisters (played by Noomi Rapace) live a hide-and-seek existence who outwit authorities by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman. Each named after a day of the week, each can go outside of their apartment one day a week using their common identity. Then, one day, Monday does not come home.

Wirkola (“Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”) is directing from a script written by Kerry Williamson and Max Botkin. Marwan Kenzari, Christian Rubeck and Pal Sverre Hagen also star and filming is now underway in Bucharest at the Castel Film Studios.
