Israeli entertainment star Ninet Tayeb is set to star in a new Hollywood movie, Hadashot 2 reported.

According to the report, Tayeb, who has enjoyed success in Israel as a musical performer and actress, having played a part in the internationally-successful Israeli TV series “When Heroes Fly,” has now been cast in a Hollywood movie called “Tell Me Why I Don’t Like Mondays.”

The movie is based on the 1979 massacre carried out by then-16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer at a San Diego school. Spencer, who shot to death 2 adults and wounded another 8 students, was subsequently asked by a reporter why she had carried out the attack and famously replied, “I don’t like Mondays.”

Tayeb, according to the report, is to play “Jenny,” the partner of Brenda’s father.
