Noomi Rapace is playing sisters. Septuplet sisters. All seven of them.

The “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” star has signed on to front the cast of “Dead Snow” and “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” director Tommy Wirkola’s “What Happened to Monday?”, in which she’ll play all seven septuplet sisters in the indie sci-fi drama.

Based on a script by Max Botkin, “What Happened to Monday?” would find Rapace playing “the multiple roles of 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.”

So I’m guessing the rest of the sisters are named after days, being that Monday goes missing? Makes sense. Seven days, seven sisters. One actress. Hey, if anyone can do it, it’s the girl with the dragon tattoo.

Curiously, the role was originally written for a man, but they switched it over to a gal when Rapace got involved. Similar to what happened with “Salt” with Angelina Jolie, though Jolie only played one role (or two, if you count her secret identity) in that movie. What a slacker, that Angelina.

Rapace has “Child 44” and “Animal Rescue” on tap, both with Tom Hardy, while Wirkola is finishing up the “Dead Snow” sequel, “Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead”.
