Stana Katic stars in Sean Hanish' film 'Sister Cities'

Stana Katic stars in Sean Hanish’ film ‘Sister Cities’

Stana Katic: No ‘Castle’ Movie For Her, But A Film About Four Sisters Who Need Some Bonding
When Stana Katic was removed from the Castle before the series was cancelled, fans were disheartened. And, it looks like there is no way that she would reprise her role as Kate Beckett in the series, for sure, and definitely, not in a Castle movie. But fans could still be in good cheer. There a new project in store for Katic including a film about sisters who need some bonding. For eight seasons, Katic was part of the Castle series and viewers loved her role as Kate. Speculations have circulated that she will play the female lead for a movie based on the series. But it looks like Katic’s busy schedule won’t allow this to happen. She is set to star in Sean Hanish’s ‘Sister Cities‘.

Sister Cities‘ is an adaptation of Colette Freedman’s stage play. It follows the lives of four sisters who don’t know each other too well until their mother died. Together they will discover a secret that could tear them apart. Katic will be starring alongside Michelle Trachtenberg, Jesss Weixler, Jacki Weaver, Amy Smart, Alfred Molina, ‘Pretty Little Liars‘ actress Troian Bellisario, Tom Everett Scott, Kathy Baker and introducing Kaia Gerber.

Katic actually shot Sister Cities in 2015. It’s good news for all the fans of the Castle beauty. Katic has been part of plenty of films throughout her career, including ‘Casino Royale’.

Sister Cities‘ is scheduled to be released on television on September 17 on Lifetime.

Sean Hanish’s Independent Film ‘Sister Cities’ Lands at Lifetime
Per Cynthia Littleton in Variety (080916) Lifetime Network has picked up TV rights to the indie film ‘Sister Cities‘, starring Jacki Weaver, Stana Katic, Jess Weixler, Michelle Trachtenberg and Troian Bellisario. The drama tells the story of four estranged sisters who are brought together by their mother’s death. It’s set to bow on the cabler Sept. 17. Amy Smart, Alfred Molina and Tom Everett Scott also star along with Kathy Baker and introduces Kaia Gerber.

The project comes from director-producer Sean Hanish and the same team that produced the Emmy-nominated ‘Return to Zero‘, which aired on Lifetime in 2014. “Our goal with ‘Sister Cities’ has always been to get the film in front of as many people as possible, and Lifetime has proved to be the preeminent network to reach viewers who love films with strong female characters and performances,” said director-producer Sean Hanish. “After the overwhelming success of ‘Return to Zero’ on Lifetime, we’re thrilled to partner with the `Fempire’ a second time with ‘Sister Cities.’ ”

Colette Freedman wrote the script, which was based on her play. “Sister Cities” hails from Hanish’s Cannonball Productions and was produced by Hanish, Paul Jaconi-Biery and Eleonore Dailly. Kelly Kahl and Molina are executive producers.

On the heels of a successful sold-out premiere at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival, Lifetime acquired the worldwide broadcast rights for ‘Sister Cities‘.
