Set Photo: I Will Follow You Into the Dark

@RolondaWatts shared a photo of Mischa from the set of I Will Follow You Into the Dark which is currently in production.

As an aside, IMDb is reporting that Mischa’s original Lifetime movie titled Offline will screen on March 1st, 2012. That’s pretty soon so heavier promotion from the network should begin after the next movie in line screens.

Zero Gravity sets up ‘Dark’

We already know this as Mischa is currently on set filming, but nevertheless, here is the first official press outline (aside from the original French story).

Mischa Barton to star in Mark Robinson indie thriller

Zero Gravity Films has set up indie thriller “I Will Follow You Into the Dark” with Castlight Pictures on board to finance and Mischa Barton set to star.

Leah Pipes, Ryan Eggold and Jaz Martin are also attached with Mark Robinson set to helm from a script he penned about a girl who’s severely depressed after the deaths of both her parents. Convinced that the afterlife is mere oblivion, she retreats within herself, only to be drawn out of her depressive funk by an unexpected romance. When her new love disappears, she pursues him — even if it means walking across the threshold into death.

Christine Holder, Mark Holder and Danny Roth are producing. David C. Robinson and Mark Darling are exec producing.

Barton is repped by Domain Talent.

Additional casting for I Will Follow You Into the Dark

Relative newcomer Jaz Martin has been cast as Mischa’s roommate Sam in I Will Follow You Into the Dark. Here is what he had to say recently via his Facebook page:

Had the table read for ‘I Will Follow You In to The Dark’ went really well. I start on Sunday and we finish on the 26th of Jan. Mischa Barton and Ryan Eggold are great as the leads! So happy to be a part of this cool project :-)

From the casting breakdown I read, Sam and Sophia (played by Mischa) are supposed to be extremely close in the movie but not romantically inclined. Ryan Eggold will be playing Mischa’s love interest. It’ll be interesting to see how Mischa works opposite both of these actors in delivering the different type of chemistry required for each scenario.

Production begins on I Will Follow You Into the Dark

This is the movie that kind of took us by surprise when Mischa’s involvement was unexpectedly announced by a French website. Following the original news story, we got very little additional information other than a casting call. Well, thanks to Twitter, here are a couple of tweets confirming the start date of the movie. Which is today.

The first is courtesy actress Melinda Cohen who will star in the movie alongside Mischa (and apparently ex-90210 star Ryan Eggold)

Just booked the supporting lead in a feature film starring Mischa Barton and Ryan Eggold. Table read today, first shoot day tomorrow!

The second tweet is from Christine Holder, one of the producers of the movie.

Leaving NY behind-tomorrow first day on set with Mischa!

The NY Times movie database also lists Leah Pipes as an actress in the movie.

Here is a brief synopsis of the movie.

Story follows Sophia, who is severely depressed after the deaths of both her parents within six months. Convinced that the Afterlife is mere oblivion, and that this life is meaningless, she retreats within herself, only to be drawn out of her depressive funk by an unexpected romance with a man named Adam. After Adam disappears mysteriously into the depths of a haunted apartment building, Sophia vows to pursue him, even if it means walking over the threshold into the realm of death.

And remember not to confuse this title with Into the Darkness, which Mischa is also still currently attached to film alongside Toby Hemingway and John Schneider. Mischa’s been attached to this film for a really long time so it seemed like things were a little DOA. But a casting call recently went out for supporting actors and extras with a submission deadline set for March 2012.

New Movie Rumour: “I Will Follow You Into the Dark”

A French website (click to read the story in French) is reporting that Mischa has been cast as protagonist Sophia in a romantic supernatural thriller called I Will Follow You Into the Dark. The film is reportedly due to begin production on January 7th, 2012 in Los Angeles. It will be directed by Mark Robinson (The Levenger Tapes) who also wrote the screenplay. David C. Robinson (Exorcist: The Beginning, Georgia Rule) will produce with Danny Roth, Christine Holder and Mark Holder.

Here is a synopsis:

Story follows Sophia, who is severely depressed after the deaths of both her parents within six months. Convinced that the Afterlife is mere oblivion, and that this life is meaningless, she retreats within herself, only to be drawn out of her depressive funk by an unexpected romance with a man named Adam. After Adam disappears mysteriously into the depths of a haunted apartment building, Sophia vows to pursue him, even if it means walking over the threshold into the realm of death.

I’m currently unable to find any other source to confirm the validity of this story, so as always, take the news with a grain of salt.
