Tommy Wirkola is easily one of the most slept on talents in the business today, which seems absurd given the fact that he’s delivered two insanely enjoyable Dead Snow flicks and the fun but goofy Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. The guy has true talent, and he’ll be putting his skills to work soon, as he’s gearing up to shoot Seven Sisters, a film that looks grittier than Wirkola’s previous efforts.
Noomi Rapace, Glenn Close, and Willem Dafoe are all tapped to appear in the film.
We’ll keep you updated on an official release date, for now we know Netflix plans to pick it up, and it’s getting a theatrical release in Germany, it’s just uncertain when this one will be unleashed on the world as we know it. While you’re waiting for the US release info, check out the trailer below!
In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy, seven identical sisters (all of them portrayed by Noomi Rapace) live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), 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 (Willem Dafoe) 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.
