The film, which will be directed by Joshua Marston, will star the previously announced Chiwetel Ejiofor. Marcus Hinchey penned the script based on an episode of the radio program This American Life.
Come Sunday, according to the industry website, is the “true story of a renowned evangelical minister in Tulsa, OK, who stirs up controversy with his revelation that there is no hell.” Rashad has been cast in the role of Gina, the wife of Ejiofor's Carlton Pearson.
Rashad was Tony-nominated for her performances in Stick Fly and The Trip to Bountiful. She will return to Broadway this spring in the Sam Gold-directed A Doll’s House, Part 2, which co-stars Chris Cooper and Laurie Metcalf.
