The seven must overcome their own differences and avoid government execution in order to solve the disappearance of one of their own."
The project, which Max Botkin scripted, was originally written for a male, but rewritten for Rapace specifically.
"Although the role was originally written for a male, I was struck by the complexities of having an actor portray seven characters and immediately knew Noomi was the ideal actor -- male or female -- to bring them to life," Wirkola said in a statement, according to THR.
Rapace is best known for leading the Swedish film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO trilogy, as well as Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS. She can next be seen in CHILD 44 and ANIMAL RESCUE.
