Supermassive Games announced their new projects during E3 2017, and one of them is Katie’s new game – Hidden Agenda, where she plays Homicide Detective Becky Marnie. The game is set to be released later this year, more info below:
“Choice and consequence. Who can you trust?
Can you hold your nerve in the hunt for the infamous ‘Trapper’ killer? Use your mobile device to make tough decisions that impact the branching storyline in this PS4 exclusive crime thriller from the PlayLink range. You never know what’s lurking around each dark and sinister corner…
But this chilling mystery has a twist from the very start: bring up to five friends into play and you’ll each have an objective to work towards. Will you be driving towards a common goal, or working against each other? Influence is power and each choice may alter the unfolding story… but how far will you go to fulfil your own agenda?”

Katie announced on her instagram that she just got engaged to her boyfriend, Mattew Rodgers:
“I can’t wait to spend forever with you my darling!! I’m the luckiest girl in the whole world. I ❤️ YOU to the moon and back @mattyice432 Thank you for a magical evening I will forever remember.”
It’s finally official folks: Katie is returning to Arrow as Black Siren in the last two episodes of season 5, and she will stick around for next season.
“One of the things that most excites us about Arrow is that we go where the story takes us. Last year, the story took us to the tragic death of Laurel Lance. This year, our midseason finale reintroduced us to Laurel’s doppelgänger, Black Siren,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim in a statement.
“We were so taken by Katie’s fearless interpretation of this character that we knew her story was not yet finished. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Katie back to Arrow as Black Siren, though as her appearances on Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this season show, she never really left the family.”
Reminder that Katie will also be on the season finale Legends of Tomorrow, and according to Guggenheim it will be a very emotional scene.
If you watched this week’s episode of Arrow, I know you must be very upset about the ending, but some are also wondering what’s next for Black Siren… right? Considering that Katie just moved into her new house in Los Angeles (as she confirmed in her latest Facebook Live video), I don’t think she’s filming anything for the DCTV shows lately. However, Marc Guggenheim affirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that we haven’t seen the last of Black Siren:
“I think that at the end of the day we sort of saw an opportunity to tell what we thought was an interesting story. I think one of the nice things of the episode that it did for us was that it sort of took Black Siren back from The Flash and sort of put her more on to Arrow’s orbit. That just opens up all sorts of interesting storytelling possibilities for us.”
We saw at the end of the episode that Oliver still believes Black Siren can be redeemed, and according to Guggenheim it was very intentional:
“That was very intentional, like I said, a good chunk of the end of the episode was about putting Black Siren back in Oliver’s orbit. We could have very easily returned her to the pipeline in Central City, but Oliver and us as writers wanted to keep Black Siren close. Just yesterday in the writer’s room we were talking about all the different potential stories for Black Siren. You know, assuming Katie [Cassidy] is up for it, you haven’t seen the last of Black Siren. I think there is a lot of interesting stuff to be done and at the end of the day – to sort of go back to the point of toying with people’s emotions [laughs] – we really do break story according to a very, very simple barometer which is ‘Is it interesting? Do we have stories to tell?’
[With] Black Siren, there is a lot of potential there. Just this morning, driving into work, I was thinking about just how much I wanted to see a scene where [Quentin] Lance meets Black Siren. I just think that would be really, really, rich to see those emotional stuff. So again, with Katie’s participation, you haven’t seen the last of her.”
Here are some news and the description for Grace:
Tate Donovan (Manchester By The Sea), Katie Cassidy (Arrow), and Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo) will topline the dark romantic comedy Grace, written and directed by Devin Adair. The trio is joined by Mircea Monroe, Debby Ryan, Missi Pyle, Michael Madson, Gail Bean, Annie Ilonzeh, and Hugo Armstrong in the indie film that marks first project from Ouroboros Entertainment.
The pic follows Charlie Ellison (Donovan), a formally famous writer living in a world of faded glory and writers block whose best friend and agent, Bernie (Lillard) has spent the advance on Elliston’s upcoming novel and is being stalked by his publisher, the IRS, loan sharks and his wife. In an effort to get a first draft, Bernie sends a belligerent young woman, Dawn (Cassidy) to inspire and check on Charlie… but she has ideas of her own.
Ouroboros’ founder Laure Sudreau and New Artists Alliance’s Gabriel Cowan are producing the film, which has a planned release for summer next year.
