Tika Sumpter Joins ‘The Pages’ Cast


Tika Sumpter Nabs Lead Role in ‘The Pages’

While she may have lost the opportunity to topline her own show after CBS failed to pick up her 313 pilot, actress Tika Sumpter is still a hot commodity in Hollywood. In addition to her gig on The Haves and Have Nots, Tika has also secured two new acting roles, including the lead in the upcoming political thriller The Pages.

The all-female led feature stars Tika as a U.S. security advisor who’s threatened by associates from her dark past, including a steely politician set to be played by former Scream Queens actress, Jamie Lee Curtis.

Director Ben Tavassoli describes the film as “a tale of obsession, collusion and hopeful redemption.”

Corrado Mooncoin, a Chicago-based independent production company, will produce The Pages, which is set to begin principal shooting and photography this week.

Tika recently wrapped shooting on two films: Tyler Perry’s Acrimony and Robert Redford’s Old Man and the Gun. Both are expected to hit theaters in 2018.
