Check out the teaser trailer for Mischa’s upcoming role in L.A. Slasher. The trailer is really well done and makes the movie look like a lot of fun, can’t wait!
We are still currently awaiting details of a release date, but with distribution pretty much locked in, it shouldn’t be too far away. You can also read an excerpt from the press release below.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (August 18, 2014) – A new trailer has been released for the up-and-coming film “L.A. Slasher,” directed by Martin Owen and produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (“Girls Against Boys”, “The Alphabet Killer”). The satire, which is making waves in social media, has also recently been picked up by Archstone Distribution to handle its international sales.
The film offers a tongue-in-cheek review of reality TV, and the undue admiration for people who are famous for simply being famous. In the feature, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them. “L.A. Slasher” explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior.
USA Today has shared the trailer from one of Mischa’s upcoming movies Mining for Ruby.
It appears as though the movie will be available for download via VOD from August 1st. Mischa only shot for this movie for a very short time, so it appears that she’ll likely only have limited screen time.
Mining for Ruby unearths love, Alaskan style.
Directed by Zoe Quist, the indie drama — on video on demand beginning Aug. 1 — stars Daniel Ponickly as a widower named Jack who’s in a downward spiral of depression, and Antoinette Kalaj is Ruby, a grad student studying environmental engineering in the 49th state, where the movie was actually filmed.
After incessant persuading from his sister (Mischa Barton), Jack finally leaves the cozy confines of his cabin in Alaska and luckily meets and falls quickly for Ruby. However, this love story is not destined to be an easy one — she not only has a psycho ex (Jonathan Bennett) who likes a good scrap but Ruby also throws the whole town into a tizzy when, against the advice of her professor (Billy Zane), she inadvertently gets embroiled in a poisonous waste crisis.

Here is the teaser poster for Mischa’s upcoming role in Cloudland co-starring Drew Fuller, Katie Parker and Adi Shankar.
Whether or not they’re are familiar with his name, horror fans definitely know the output of screenwriter Jeffrey Reddick. Having conceptualized the FINAL DESTINATION franchise as well as written the scripts for TAMARA and the 2008 remake of DAY OF THE DEAD, Reddick now hopes to further his prolific presence in the horror genre with his newest project, CLOUDLAND.
Aiming to become the feature length debut of short-form director Alex Bram, CLOUDLAND follows an investigative reporter on the heels of a cult’s prophecy following the murder of his young sister, which may be paranormal in nature. Reddick is overseeing the production as executive producer, with writing duties going to Bram and Martin Aguilera.
CLOUDLAND also sports an impressive cast, including Drew Fuller (CHARMED), Adi Shankar (THE VOICES), Katie Parker (ABSENTIA) and Mischa Barton (THE SIXTH SENSE). The film, set to lens in Los Angeles this fall, also will include the work of SFX team PRPVFX, who left their mark on the horror genre in last year’s splattery EVIL DEAD remake. You can see the first poster for CLOUDLAND below, and keep an eye out for more updates on CLOUDLAND as they come.

Jack (Daniel Ponickly, “Mona Lisa Smile”, “Raw Cut”) is a widower struggling with his continued depression as he falls for Ruby (Antoinette Kalaj, “Riddick”, “Don Jon”), a passionate environmental engineering grad student who is embroiled in a poisonous waste controversy. Due to the encouragement of his sister (Mischa Barton, “The OC”, “The Sixth Sense”), Jack finally leaves his Alaskan cabin for the first time in months and meets Ruby, only to be confronted by her crazed ex-boyfriend, Andrew (Jonathan Bennett, “Mean Girls”, “Van Wilder”). Against the warnings of her mentor – Prof. Goodwell (Billy Zane, “Titanic”, “Big Kiss”) – Ruby exposes the city to an environmental crisis, thrusting her grant funding – along with her doctoral research trip – into jeopardy. As their friendship blooms into something deeper, Ruby and Jack discover that love can be found anywhere, even in Alaska.
Check out this incredible new trailer for Mischa’s upcoming role in A Prayer for Rain. The film is inspired by the real events surrounding the tragic Bhopal disaster. Mischa’s co-stars are Martin Sheen and Kal Penn.
Press play on the photo above to view.
In 1945 Union Carbide Corporation helped build the atomic bomb. In 1984 they built a time-bomb…
Starring Martin Sheen, Mischa Barton, Kal Penn and a powerful ensemble cast, “Bhopal A Prayer For Rain” is an epic, ‘whodunnit’ that exposes the shocking events that led to the biggest man made industrial disaster in history, in which as many as 10,000 people were killed in one night and for those that did survive, the tragedy had just begun.
Dilip, a rickshaw driver in Bhopal, India, lands himself a job at the Union Carbide plant. It is a chance to prove his worth to his family and pull them out of poverty. The job is tough with long hours; everyone is desperate to hold on to their pay cheque and so Dilip keeps quiet when he notices managers at the plant ignoring safety standards.
Dilip’s long time friend, Motwani, a tabloid journalist knows that Bhopal residents complain of the constant stench in the air and wake up at night choking from the gas. He is on a mission to expose what he believes is a deadly time bomb ticking away in his home town. He feels as if no one will listen but when he meets feisty American journalist, Eva, he sees a ray of hope and persuades her to confront Carbide executive Warren Anderson.
As Eva and Motwani endeavour to delve deeper into Carbide’s activities, Dilip is using every resource necessary to pay and plan for his sister’s wedding. When the wedding night arrives the family are full of joy and celebration as two families join together as one. But as the music plays an invisible catastrophe is working its way throughout the town and wedding party. One by one the guests start to feel unwell the largest tower at the Carbide plant spews poisonous gas into the night air; one by one they collapse; and one by one they unknowingly become a statistic in the world’s largest chemical disaster to date.
Nearly thirty years later as the plant stands as a ghost-like constant reminder, the water in Bhopal is still contaminated and one person a day dies as a direct result of the tragedy, Eva visits the now retired Anderson. Will he finally bow down and apologise? Or will he continue to deny that Carbide had any part to play…?
A disaster that set a deadly precedent for multinational corporate activity in the developing world and revealed a poisonous corruption at the heart of India, the world’s largest democracy – this is a story that demands to be seen.
I posted about Mischa’s involvement in this film in the development update a few days ago, but now the role is excitingly receiving some proper press courtesy of Variety.
And how awesome are the pictures showcased above of Mischa’s transformation into other memorable icons from the glory days of Hollywood and beyond. We can’t wait to see Mischa transformed into Jean Harlow.
Here is the story:
Mischa Barton has been cast as Jean Harlow in the biopic “By Love Reclaimed” for ThunderBall Films and Mania Entertainment.
Nuala Barton and Mario Domina are producing “By Love Reclaimed.” Adrian Finkelstein and Valerie Fanich will exec produce.
The script, written by Finkelstein, centers on the 1932 scandal in which MGM producer and Harlow’s husband Paul Bern was found shot to death in their Benedict Canyon Home — two months after Harlow had married him.
Harlow, one of the biggest stars of the 1930s, died in 1937 of kidney failure.
Barton, who is currently in London filming “The Hoarder,” recently wrapped the indie feature “Starcrossed.” She is repped by Artist International and Adam Trahan.
