One of the most difficult tasks for an actor has got to be playing multiple characters in one movie. So, imagine playing not one, not two - but seven roles in the same flick! has joined the deterioration sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday?, to do just that.

Variety is reporting that the Prometheus, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Child 44 thesp will star in 's (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) new projct, playing "the multiple roles of septuple sisters who struggle to stay hidden in an overpopulated world were a one-child policy outlaws siblings."

Wirkola commented:

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.

The depressing tale follows a resourceful set of identical septuples who must avoid governmental execution while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.

Although not many other details are yet known, the story sounds strong and Rapace (being the fantastic thesp that she is) has swooped in a part that was originally written for a dude, so that's pretty cool. What are your first impressions of What Happened to Monday? Are you in?
