With striking similarities to Orphan Black, here's a new sci-fi clone thriller titled Seven Sisters, starring Noomi Rapace, with the Prometheus star playing all seven duplicated siblings in a near-future world where an oppressive government limits the number of children its citizens can have.
The film also has an alternate name, What Happened to Monday?, which is a reference to all the the seven cloned sisters being named after the days of the week. Netflix has nabbed the American distribution rights to this intriguing indie film from Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) and will present it on their streaming service sometime this fall after its theatrical run.
Here's the official synopsis:
2073. The Earth is overpopulated. The government decided to introduce a one-child policy, applied by the Birth Control Board, under the aegis of Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close). Confronted with the birth of seven-fold, Terrence Settman (Willem Dafoe) decides to keep the existence of his 7 granddaughters secret. Confined to their apartment, each day they will have to share a unique identity outside, simulating the existence of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). If the secret remains intact for years, everything collapses on the day when Monday mysteriously disappears.
Opening August 30 in France, Seven Sisters also stars Robert Wagner and Christian Rubeck.
