Completely forgot to mention this in the updates yesterday but those keen observers of the “latest uploads” link have already noticed the photos. Mischa is currently in Russia promoting Herbal Essences where she attended the Herbal Essences Young Icon Awards in Moscow. I’ll be adding more photos from the event asap.
Here is a preview scene from Mischa’s upcoming Fall 2009 show “The Beautiful Life”.
The first cast promotional picture from Mischa’s upcoming CW show “The Beautiful Life” has been released online! Hopefully more photos are released really soon. Big thanks to Mel from Blake Lively Web for providing us with the shot.
E! Online is reporting that the show will indeed air out of America’s Next Top Model on Wednesday nights at 9pm. The official schedule will be announced on Thursday.
A coming soon splash page has been uploaded to the official website of Mischa’s upcoming psycho thriller titled “Homecoming”. Mischa stars alongside “90210’s” Jessica Stroup and Matt Long from ABC’s upcoming new legal dramedy “The Deep End”. The movie will be released in select cinems on July 17th. Further details will be provided as they come about.
Mike is a small-town star athlete who is the first in his family to attend college, receiving a football scholarship to prestigious Northwestern University. When he returns home over Christmas break to the people he left behind – his family and friends – they are all surprised to see him with a new girlfriend, Elizabeth, a pretty rich girl from Chicago. No one is more shocked than Mike’s homecoming queen ex-girlfriend, Shelby, who immediately wants to be rid of Elizabeth and plots to take care of the problem. The story takes many twists and turns as Shelby does everything it takes to get Mike back.
Korbi from Zap2It is also reporting about Mischa’s new show being a lock for the fall, and she also mentions that the show could set up residence in New York instead of Canada where the pilot was filmed. Mischa has also previously hinted that she’d be spending a lot of time in New York if the show were to be picked up. I certainly hope it does move to New York.
On a brighter note, I’m hearing really good things about the Ashton Kutcher-produced “Beautiful Life,” which insiders say is a sure thing for fall. Word is, the drama about young models in the city will film in New York, instead of Canada where the pilot was shot, because the network has high hopes for it.
“Melrose Place,” “Vampire Diaries” and “Beautiful Life” are a go at the CW.
The three dramas are being picked up for a fall launch.
The CW hinted at its plans for “Melrose Place” and “Vampire Diaries” when it gave both pilots permission to start making offers to writers and directors.
If the CW pairs the “Melrose Place” reboot with “90210,” that would bring together the updated versions of the Fox series and its spinoff.
With its name recognition and built-in buzz factor, “Melrose” was an instant favorite before a single page of the script was written.
Still, the CW execs waited to watch the CBS Par-produced pilot and liked what they saw.
For the WBTV-produced “Vampire Diaries,” based on Alloy’s series of books about a girl in a love triangle with two vampire brothers, the network hopes to catch the vampire pop culture wave ignited by the success of the “Twilight” franchise and HBO’s “True Blood.”
And with its setting — a co-ed residence of young models — CBS Par/Katalyst’s “Beautiful Life” would make a perfect scripted companion of “America’s Next Top Model.”
It doesn’t hurt that both “Melrose” and “Life” have tabloid-friendly stars — Mischa Barton and Elle MacPherson in “Life” and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. And “Life” is exec produced by Twitter king Ashton Kutcher.
The CW has a couple of other pilots, including “Life Unexpected,” in consideration for midseason.
Screen captures from Assassination of a High School President have been uploaded. Mischa stars with Reece Thompson, Bruce Willis and Luke Grimes in this dark comedy. The movie premiered in Russia last week on a cable television service so the captures aren’t high quality but good enough. Huge thanks to Maz for taking the time to cap!
Note: Album of captures features mild nudity. Visitor discretion advised.
The film is unfortunately backed by a now bankrupt film distributor so at this stage it seems unlikely we’ll get an English release any time soon. Hopefully some other company will come to the rescue and at least release the movie on DVD. Bad time for indepedent film.
MISCHA BARTON has become the latest victim of the credit crunch – her new movie has stalled as makers can’t find the cash to distribute the film.
The actress appears alongside Bruce Willis in Assassination Of A High School President, but the project is in need of investment before a release date is set.
And Barton even claims movie distributors, Yari Film Group, have been forced to file for bankruptcy.
She says, “They just can’t get the funding to distribute it. The movie is complete and ready to go but there is no release date set and it is not looking likely there will be one.”
The film premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and was slated for release in March (09).
