Netflix has signed a deal with Kerry Washington to star in and produce a feature film adaptation of Diane Cardwell’s memoir Rockaway.
On a routine assignment, a Manhattan journalist (Washington) unexpectedly discovers the transcendent power of surfing, and finds herself running from the comfortable life she’s always known towards a life of romance and self-discovery in eclectic Rockaway Beach.
Emmy Award winner Washington (“The Prom, “American Son,” “Little Fires Everywhere”) also stars in the upcoming Netflix film The School For Good And Evil.
Liza Chasin’s 3dot Productions, Kerry Washington’s Simpson Street, and Aevitas Entertainment are co-producers on the project.”
