What is next for Stana Katic after “Castle” exit?

After eight years, Stana Katic better known to viewers as Detective Kate Beckett is leaving “Castle.” ABC announced this week that Nathan Fillion’s TV wife will be departing the detective drama after Season 8. While her departure from the popular series is heartbreaking to fans and a huge loss to the network, Katic can look forward to a busy year ahead.

According to her IMDB page, Katic has completed filming three new movies slated for 2016 while on break from “Castle.” One of her projects is “Sister Cities,” an independent drama based on a play by Colette Freedman. Katic will star alongside “The Good Wife” alumni Jess Weixler, “Pretty Little Liars” actress Troian Belisario and “Gossip Girl” regular Michelle Trachtenberg.

According to Variety, “Sister Cities” revolves around four estranged sisters who reunite after losing their mother to what they believe is a suicide. Each sister is named after an American city, as different and far apart from each other as sisters. Amy Smart, Alfred Molina, Kathy Baker and Tom Everett Scott complete the cast. Sean Hanish serves as the producer and director.

Meanwhile,”Lost in Florence” (or “The Tourist”) is about an American who, after getting his heart broken, flies to Florence and get involved in a dangerous sport. Katic plays the role of Anna, a supporting character. [Watch the trailer below.]

In “The Rendezvous,” Katic goes back to solving mysteries as Rachel Rozman. The film is based on a novel by Sarah Isaias about a “mis-matched” couple that goes on to an adventure to search for the “Dead Sea Scroll” said to be hidden in the ancient city of Petra.

Moreover, Katic’s fans should not be too disappointed about her departure from “Castle” because the actress will not be straying away from television despite her blooming and increasingly busy movie career. She revealed to ET Canadathat she is developing a new television series for cable, but she refused to divulge further information because, as she quipped, she will probably be in trouble for talking about the project. With all these lined up, Stana Katic does not really need Rick Castle anymore.

Stana Katic: Her Journey to The Rendezvous & Sister Cities

Most people who get time off from work use it relax. Since she’s been starring as detective Kate Beckett on the ABC hit show Castle, actress Stana Katic has a tendency to use her hiatus time between seasons to go do another acting job.  For the Castle 2015 hiatus, she used it to do two: The Rendezvous and Sister Cities. Read on to see how these projects fit into the still rising trajectory of this talented & beautiful star.

(…)Artistic processes are all about making choices all the time, and the very act of making a choice is the distilling down and the getting to the core of what it is that you care about and what you want to say, really.

The above quote is from five time Oscar-nominated writer and director Mike Leigh.  This idea of actors making choices in what roles they do may sound unlikely to some.  Don’t actors – especially early on – just take what they can get?  Well, yes and no. In terms of what auditions come their way an actor has no control over it.  However, even early in the game an actor makes decisions on what they will audition for.  (For more on actors choosing roles:www.backstage.com – advice for actors ).

What strikes me about the Katic resume is that there aren’t any roles where she’s just there as eye-candy – and there’s no doubt she’s beautiful enough to play any number of roles that require nothing but the ability to be hot on film.  This speaks to the choices Katic didn’t make when going to audition and makes what she did do a snapshot of what’s been important to her early on as an actress.

In examining her body of acting work and her public persona, one can see Katic doing exactly as Leigh describes. Her work shows a steadily building arc that gives a picture of her not only as an actress, but of her larger artistic sensibility and spirit. These two new projects fit right into this arc, and appear to be creating a point that will allow more of who she is as an actress to shine.

Let’s look at the roles she’s doing in the first of these new projects.

Stana Katic And Raza Jaffrey Star In Amin Matalqa’s ‘The Rendezvous’

EXCLUSIVE: Stana Katic (Castle) and Raza Jaffrey (Homeland) will star in Sundance award-winning director Amin Matalqa’s action adventure The Rendezvous. Inspired by classic romantic capers as North By Northwest and Romancing The Stone, the film is an adaptation of Sarah Isaias’ book A New Song. Set in Jordan, the film recently wrapped principal photography on location there. Terrel Seltzer (One Fine Day) has written the script, which follows an unlikely pair who find themselves swept up in a deadly race to find a sacred Dead Sea Scroll hidden in the ancient city of Petra. The film is produced by Dan Halsted (Garden State) and Tricia Gibbs. Amanda Rohlke is exec producing. Alfonso Bassave, Ron Guttman, Glenn Fleshler, Darby Stanchfield, and Nadim Sawalha round out the cast. Stana Katic and Raza Jaffrey are repped by Gersh/ Principal Entertainment LA.

Matalqa, who is of Jordanian descent, has proven himself to be a prolific filmmaker and one equally comfortable in Hollywood and the Arab world. He directed Disney’s first (and only) Arabic language feature The United in 2012 to follow on from his debut Captain Abu Raed, which won the World Cinema Audience Award at Sundance. He is also a participant in Disney/ABC’s 2014-2016 Directing Program, which offers an extensive series of seminars and mentoring sessions with the goal of nurturing promising directing talent among industry pros.

Stana’s New Movie Project: The Rendezvous

Stana shared the name of the movie she worked on over the summer, and we can finally announce that the official name of the movie is The Rendezvous. The film was shot in Jordan over the summer, with some final scenes being shot in Los Angeles, and begins post production soon. Thanks to the director Amin Matalqa, we also have some other information. He states that it’s an American film but that everyone will have access to see it. The film has drama, comedy, suspense, and action all brilliantly balanced by Stana and the cast, which include Raza Jaffrey, Meghann Cionni and Alfonso Bavasse. He says that fans of Stana will be extremely happy because this is HER movie and she is AMAZING. You can follow @AminMatalqa on twitter to receive the latest information. I’ve added some behind the scenes photos that members of the cast and crew have shared online over the past few weeks, which you can find at the link below.

In a post on Stana’s instagram yesterday, she said she begins rehearsals for a new film on Monday, so hopefully we get more information about that soon. We also know that Castle begins filming Season 8 on July 15th, so she’s definitely keeping herself busy this year!
