We’ve been hearing about a mystery project of Mischa’s starring Jason Statham for a little while now, and IMDb has now finally revealed the title. The movie is called Homefront and also stars James Franco, Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth. By the looks of things, Mischa is in a supporting role but it is still very exciting to see her involved in a project with several recognized and well known actors. The movie is written by Sylvester Stallone based on a novel of the same name by Chuck Logan.
IMDb indicates that the film is currently in post-production with release slated for 2014.
Here is the brief synopsis linked with the movie:
A DEA Agent retires to a seemingly quiet place with an underbelly of drugs and violence. When his family is threatened he is forced back into action to save his loved ones and the town.
Bloody Disgusting caught up with Mischa to chat about her upcoming romantic horror I Will Follow You Into the Dark. Personally, this is my most anticipated Mischa feature. Check out the trailer if you’ve not seen it. Or even if you have seen it. There probably should be a spoiler alert associated with the text since it seems to give away a few details that aren’t prevalent in the trailer.
Mark Edwin Robinson’s I Will Follow You Into the Dark (the film’s sales agent, Epic Pictures, is selling it internationally as Into the Dark) is set to come out later this year. The film stars Mischa Barton (“The OC”, The Sixth Sense) as the troubled Sophia Monet. I recently caught up with Barton at her home to discuss the film, her character and some of the more intense moments to shoot on set.
In the film, “A young woman (Mischa Barton) who is severely depressed after the deaths of both her parents retreats within herself, only to be drawn out of her depression by an unexpected romance with a man named Adam (Ryan Eggold). After Adam mysteriously disappears into the depths of a haunted apartment building, she vows to pursue him, even if it means crossing into the world of the supernatural.” Leah Pipes and Ryan Eggold also star.
The movie deals with a lot of grief and loss. What was it like charting your character’s arc through that?
For me, Sophia is one of these people who is making huge revelations about her life quite quickly and is kind of confused about everything. This whole rejecting God thing is a huge deal for her. A lot of people go through life not questioning things and, when they do, it’s a massive overhaul. That’s where her grief comes from. The crux of the story for me was the love story between her and Ryan [Eggold, who plays Adam in the film]. In order for her to go to the depths of what she goes to, the most important thing is that this love was real and palpable and that the audience wouldn’t question it. And then the other side of it was, “would it be scary enough for me?”
Now that I’ve seen it, the film has turned out more ethereal than I expected. Which I like as well. It is more of an Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind life after death kind of curious side of things as opposed to a straight horror. I think Ryan thought it would err more on the side of just being scary, but it’s not. It’s more about life and love and what’s worth it and what your beliefs are.
As far as her grief, I play grief well. I’ve always played these quite complicated, layered, dark, depressed characters. Sophia isn’t someone with a huge backbone when it comes to things. I mean she is, but she isn’t. She’s strong enough to know what she wants but she’s so uncertain about so many things in her life, but what she’s sure about is Adam.
Photos of Mischa and Sebastian at a gas station in Studio City have been added.
Mischa Barton has been famous for so long it’s quite a surprise that she’s only 26. She was starring on stage aged 8 and on screen by 11. And ever since winning her role as a bronzed beach babe in the TV teen drama The OC a decade ago, she’s been an almost permanent fixture in the glossy and the gossipy magazines.
We are meeting in Mischa’s Place, her boutique in Spitalfields, East London, which opened in August and is easily spotted because of the paparazzi outside. Inside there are rails of Barton’s own range of boho-glam clothes, handbags and make-up as well as the iPhone covers she designed for Uunique London. At their launch last month she posed with a £189,000 phone cover made from rose gold, pink and white diamonds and handmade Italian leather. Her own designs are a more affordable £34.99 and feature hippyish appliqué florals or a cartoon avatar of Barton herself, all swirly hair and pout.
In the flesh, Barton is just as Bambi-eyed and swishy-haired, but she’s also slightly haunted-looking in the manner of Kristen Stewart.
She teeters out of her taxi in battered leather jacket, skinny jeans and towering diamanté Jimmy Choos and takes me on a guided tour of the shop, proudly showing off the items that she designed herself. “I tend to be quite opinionated about what I do and don’t like. It’s important for me that girls actually want to wear it and enjoy it,” she says earnestly. “I get a kick out of that, I really do.”

Writer/Director of Ben Banks, Bryce Clark, was kind enough to send through a screener of the movie ahead of its home video release due sometime over the coming months. The movie stars Ben Banks (as Ben Banks) and essentially explores a few odd scenarios that end up re-igniting a sense of ambition in this stoner guy who had spent many years coasting along. Mischa plays Amy, a coffee shop employee with a sordid past.
Ben Banks has some great qualities and some not so great qualities. If you’re used to general Hollywood movies, then like me, you’ll probably find the movie a little disconnected. There are a few storylines and several characters going on that don’t really merge together. There is also a religious undertone to the film which is a bit of a head scratcher. Having said that, in some ways it works because the movie is being told through the eyes of Ben Banks so we’re supposed to experience his life the way he’s living through it.
Moving on to the highlight of the movie, which, no surprises, is Mischa’s chemistry with Ben Banks. I did see one review that called them “uncomfortable” which I guess is true, but it’s precisely that awkwardness that makes their on screen relationship all the more charming. Their scenes together are warm and endearing. And Mischa as an actress has always had that girl-next-door vibe about her, which works a treat especially in the context of this movie as you see why Ben Banks would be protective of her despite the revelations of her past. Plus, there are a few cute little details like Amy writing Ben’s name on his coffee cup accompanied by a little smiley face.
The other highlight of the movie is how beautifully it’s shot. I don’t know anything about technical film-making jargon, but there is something in the colour saturation and the sharpness of the image that is stunning. Some of the shots are truly breathtaking, especially the outdoor work. If this weren’t a movie, it could easily have been a tourist commercial for Utah.
One of the other highlights of the movie is seeing Melora Hardin pop up – who you might know from The Office. Her presence gives a little extra kick of life into the movie and it would have been great if she had a few extra scenes.
Movies work best when you have your lead actors with all the other supporting actors and their scenes working to service and enhance the leads. In this instance, I found myself struggling to understand if the movie was an indie rom-com, a stoner comedy or a small town conspiracy theory expose because I wasn’t sure who the leads were. It then becomes apparent that there is only one lead – Ben Banks – so it makes you realize that Amy is also just a supporting character. That, however, leads me to question the ‘why?’ of it all. Why Ben Banks? A song has a chorus to hook you into listening, a character needs to hook you too and I don’t know that a set of unusual circumstances is catchy enough. I think Ben the regular guy colliding with Amy the not-so-regular girl is a much more effective hook – the story of them, not just the story of him – but that could just be my Mischa bias showing. I’m not saying we don’t get the story of them in the movie, I think it just would have benefited from re-focusing the tone to Ben and Amy as equal leads so that she’s involved with the stoner friends and the small town conspiracy too.
I’m sure you guys will enjoy Amy – she’s a great character with a lot of heart, so for that alone, I hope you’re able to check out Ben Banks when it lands on DVD or VOD in the near future.
