According to the Hollywood Reporter, a who’s who of European cinema is expected to grace the red carpet for the 26th European Film Awards on Dec. 7 in Berlin. Among the A-list names scheduled to attend are Germany’s Diane Kruger, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace and British star Kristin Scott Thomas, according to organizers. At this year’s event, stars from the best film nominees will introduce the six contenders, with Adele Exarchopoulos presenting Blue Is the Warmest Color; Iaia Forte introducing Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty; Johan Heldenbergh unveiling Belgian dramedy The Broken Circle Breakdown; Giuseppe Tornatore’s The Best Offer being introduced by Sylvia Hoeks; German actress Friederike Kempter presenting Jan Ole Gerster’s Oh Boy and Angela Molina showing off Blancanieves, a Spanish twist on Snow White from director Pablo Berger. Noomi herself is a European Film Award nominee for playing Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.

Exciting news from Deadline: Noomi Rapace has teamed with director Tommy Wirkola for “What Happened To Monday?” The script, which made the Black List, was written by Max Botkin. Rapace will play the multiple roles of septuplet sisters who struggle to stay hidden in an overpopulated world were a one-child policy outlaws siblings. Wirkola said he originally envisioned the protagonist(s) as male, but â€śI was struck by the complexities of having an actor portray seven characters and immediately knew Noomi was the ideal actor â€“ male or female â€“ to bring them to life,â€ť Wirkola said in a statement. Raffaella De Laurentiis is producing through Raffaella Productions, along with Vendomeâ€™s Philippe Rousselet. Vendome is also financing the film. Sounds like an amazing new project for Noomi.
Ridley Scott, who is currently promoting his latest movie “The Counsellor”, revealed that the screenplay for the “Prometheus” sequel is currently being developed. He said at the London press conference: “Prometheus is being written right now. Number two.” News on a follow-up for the 2012 sci-fi thriller have been quiet ever since the first film’s release. Earlier this year, Noomi Rapace told The Playlist that “theyâ€™re working on the script, [and] I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago”. Even Ridley’s statement at the press conference is rather brief, but at least it’s some new development so far. The clip from the conference can be watched here.
