What Happened to Monday?, a new sci-fi thriller directed by Norwegian Tommy Wirkola and starring Noomi Rapace and Glenn Close, will be shot in Romania. Filming will start this July, and scenes will be shot in Castel studios, in Bucharest and several locations across the country, according to Bogdan Moncea, marketing director Castel Film, cited by local Mediafax. In What Happened to Monday? Rapace plays the multiple roles of septuplet sisters who live in a world where families are allowed to have only one child, so the sisters have to remain hidden. The sisters are named after the days of the week. All goes well until one day when Monday doesnâ€™t return home.

Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), the film stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Vincent Cassel, Jason Clarke and Joel Kinnaman and is set for release on August 4th in the States. Special Features will include a “Reflections of History” featurette. After a friendâ€™s son is found dead, Soviet secret-police officer Leo Demidov (Hardy) suspects his superiors are covering up the truth. When Leo dares to raise questions, he is demoted and exiled to a provincial outpost with his wife (Rapace).
