Norwegian director Morten Tyldum made an impression on the festival circuit this year with his twisty adaptation of Headhunters, after it broke box office records back home in Norway.  The film attracted attention from Hollywood, first manifested in the English-language adaptation of Headhunters set up at Summit.  Today it was announced that Tyldum has signed a deal with Vendome Pictures to make his first American feature, What Happened to Monday?.  The script by Max Botkin centers on “identical septuplet brothers who struggle to stay hidden in an overpopulated world where a ‘one child’ policy dictates that siblings are against the law.”  Cool idea.  I presume they’ll cast one actor as the septuplets, which should allow Tyldum to creative with filmmaking sleight of hand.

Raffaella De Laurentiis (The Forbidden Kingdom) developed the project through his Raffaella Productions, and will produce alongside Vendrome CEO Philippe Rousselet (Source Code).  Magnolia will release Tyldum’s Headhunters in the U.S. sometime in Spring 2012.
