A couple of weeks ago we reported on a new film that Mischa Barton’s set to star in titled “The Science of Cool”. In the film, two teenagers, the biggest science geeks in school, come upon a formula which can transform nerds into studs.
The writer of the film, Eric Goren, dropped us a line offering to answer any questions we may have considering the project.
According to Goren, Barton is playing “one of the female leads, Jane, who is a girl who is teased and picked on for being “too plain”, Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights) who will playing the role of the nerdy Neil Tobbler, who is the leading male character who “by accident” discovers a formula in science class which transforms geeks into studs.”
The scribe also says Masiela Luscha (”The George Lopez Show”), Kiely Williams (”The Cheetah Girls”), and Jessie Cave (”Harry Potter” series), among others, are also in talks.
”We are also in talks with a number of very popular actors and actresses from TV shows such as Gossip Girl and 90210, and many A list actors from the big screen that everyone in the world will recognize. Tamara Tunie, our director, will be possibly acting in The Science of Cool too.”
Eric Goren and Patricia Goren penned this project and Carlucci Weyant and Eric Goren from Double Helix Entertainment producing the picture. A Summer ’09 startdate is planned.

Sara Paxton, Ben Hollingsworth, Ashley Madekwe and Nico Tortorella have landed lead roles in the CW drama pilot “Beautiful Life.”
“Beautiful Life,” from CBS Par, revolves around a group of models living together in a co-ed residence in New York.
Hollingsworth, repped by WMA and Magnolia, will play a wholesome model who bonds with a sweet Midwestern girl (Paxton) making a splash as New York’s freshest face.
Also playing models are Madekwe and Tortorella, repped by CESD and Kritzer Levine Wilkins.
Supermodel Elle Macpherson is returning to acting with a recurring role on CW’s drama pilot “Beautiful Life.”
The CBS Par-produced project revolves around a group of models living together in a co-ed residence in New York.
Macpherson will play Claudia, the owner of Focus Models, the top modeling agency in New York. She is an ’80s supermodel who is still in great shape and runs her business with the efficiency and toughness of a dictator.
Like her character, Macpherson was an ’80s supermodel. In fact, together with Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Paulina Porizkova and Cindy Crawford, she became part of the first generation of supermodels.
In the 1990s, she segued into acting. But after appearing in a string of movies, including “The Edge,” “If Lucy Fell” and “Batman & Robin” and recurring on NBC’s “Friends” in the late 1990s, Macpherson left Hollywood to focus on her business empire, whose portfolio of products includes workout videos, calendars, lingerie and beauty products.
Now Macpherson, repped by Fortitude, is making her acting comeback with “Beautiful Life.”
In the pilot, she joins Mischa Barton, Ben Hollingsworth, Sara Paxton, Ashley Madekwe and Nico Tortorella.
So Mischa Barton may not be mixing it up with Ashlee Simpson-Wentz on The CW’s “Melrose Place” this pilot season, but her new project will boast a co-star with a musical background.
The network confirms that “High School Musical”‘s Corbin Bleu (Chad Danforth) has been cast in Ashton Kutcher‘s “A Beautiful Life” as a male model with a Lenny Kravitz-type vibe. Bleu is not signed on as a series regular, but will definitely appear in the pilot.
Other names attached include Sara Paxton (“Summerland”), Benjamin Hollingsworth (“The Cutting Edge 3″), Ashley Madekwe (“Secret Diary of a Call Girl”) and Nico Tortorella.
So, Corbin Bleu. Smart move on The CW’s part, no? How many of you “HSM” fans are into this news? Make you a little more interested in the show?
