*Broadway veteran Condola Rashad (Romeo and Juliet, The Trip To Bountiful, Stick Fly) is moving to film for her next project.
The daughter of Phylicia Rashad and Ahmad Rashad will play the title role in the independent film “Bikini Sunshine,” written and directed by Spirit Award winner Milcho Manchevsk.
The film describes Bikini as a charismatic, mercurial and troubled former Marine who returns from Iraq and inadvertently becomes the center of a documentary film while she tries to integrate herself back in society as well as regain custody of her young daughter.
Rashad, who currently plays Kate Sacher in Showtime’s “Billions” opposite Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti, will next be seen in the Sony movie “Money Monster,” with George Clooney, directed by Jodie Foster.
Recently, Rashad appeared in Joshua Marston’s film “Complete Unknown” with Michael Shannon and Rachel Weisz, which premiered at Sundance and was acquired by Amazon Studios.
