Stana Katic lands Polish Brothers film. Stay smart!
Image Credit: Tina Gill/PR Photos Hit TV shows do come with perks, like getting the chance to land starring movie roles during the hiatus. Castle‘s Stana Katic has nabbed the lead in For Lovers Only, a romance written by and co-starring Mark Polish and directed by his brother, Michael Polish (Twin Falls Idaho, Stay Cool). According to Variety, the plot centers on a journalist (Katic), who ends up on the run with a former lover across France. “Both characters experience long periods of carefree bliss and joy punctuated by brief moments of guilt and confusion with the final outcome left open to interpretation,” the trade reports.
Despite my problems with the Polish Brothers’ film The Astronaut Farmer (and an irrational distrust of movies with ambiguous endings — I feel cheated, and like the writer/director didn’t have the balls to make a decision), this news is happy. It sounds like another smart role for Katic. After getting to know her as Castle‘s homicide detective Kate Beckett, it would hurt if we were to see her play dumb. Or blonde. (I said it.) I want her strong, sexy, and brunette. Who’s with me?
