This time, she won’t be wearing scrubs or a hospital gown; in fact, she won’t step foot inside Grey Sloan Memorial. However, she will still be reuniting with co-star Kevin McKidd as they film a new movie, North of Hell, in New Orleans!
Katherine tweeted the exciting news this morning, writing:
So excited to get to work with @therealkmckidd again! Our scenes together are gonna be veeerrryyyy different than what we did on Grey's!
Considering how last year she voiced how much she wanted to return to Grey’s and wrap up Izzie’s storyline(s), it comes as no surprise how excited she is to work with Kevin again. While it remains to be seen if her character will ever pop up — perhaps in the inevitable series finale — it will be great to see her interact with Kevin in an entirely different setting than on the show.
According to Deadline and IMDB, this “dark comedy” is about Don Champagne (played by Patrick Wilson), a “successful businessman who seems to have it all — including a bi-polar, obsessive-compulsive wife (Heigl) who relentlessly controls everything in his life.” Hmm. Kevin isn’t even listed on the page yet, so we’re unsure of how big his role is, but we have a feeling he’s either her lover or enemy. We’ll have to wait and see!
Are you excited to see Katherine and Kevin working together again? Sound off below!
