Headhunters' Director Morten Tyldum Next Film Will Be What Happened To Monday?

Norwegian director Morten Tyldum's breakout film Headhunters is opening a lot of doors for the filmmaker. Deadline reports Morten will cut his teeth on his first English film which will be a science fiction thriller titled What Happened To Monday? The story follows a group of identical septuplets (seven) who are trying to avoid governmental execution due to a one-child-per-family rule set in place as the result of overpopulation. To make their situation even more of a struggle, one of them goes missing and the other six set out to try to find them. 

His recent film Headhunters is based on the novel by Jo Nesbo which features an art thief, corporate espionage and a murderous mercenary played by Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones). I recently saw the stunning thriller which gets an North American debut this spring. Another one of Nesbo's crime novels The Snowman is getting a film adaptation by Martin Scorsese.
