Newish Facebook entry from the Facebook page for Into the Darkness:
New announcements coming soon. Finalizing casting and more. Shooting in October for perfect weather in Georgia
Sounds promising Personally, I’m keen to see Mischa in this movie. Sounds like an interesting production concept.
Just kind of randomly stumbled on this information, but it seems Mischa is attached to star in a movie called “Three$um.” A British distribution company has her name listed on their website. Here is the synopsis from IMDB – no casting has been announced there as yet.
Prague.Early 1990’s Ben and Rachel, the perfect American couple backpack through Europe and in a greedy effort to heighten their experience, they decide to smuggle drugs across the border into Prague. In a chance encounter with a young and beautiful Amanda “Baby Girl” they find their pawn for the perfect plan. But when Ben’s eye moves from Rachel to Amanda, the lines begin to blur in an erotically perverse and mind altering sex triangle. In the vein of “Body Heat”, Three$um becomes a manipulative mind game of lust and greed where the pawn captures the King.
The movie is described as an action film at various websites. Additionally, the website mentioned above indicates that Three$um is part of a trilogy (although it also seems that they are mostly self contained movies).
This one sounds like another indie movie so I guess we’ll have to wait and see if something comes about. Mischa’s been attached to a lot of projects over the years (recently The Science of Cool, Engram, Upstate and Into the Darkness) but for one reason or another (usually lack of financing) they never lift off. I would really like to see her film a studio-backed movie one of these days.
Speaking of Into the Darkness, the IMDB status was recently updated to indicate that filming will begin in October. So again, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
A short little Twitter burst from the Into the Darkness Twitter Page has officially confirmed that Mischa has joined the cast of the film.
New cast additions: Mischa Barton and John Schneider join “Into the Darkness”!
According to IMDB, Mischa is slated to film a new movie titled Into the Darkness. It seems to already be a fairly established role with most of the casting already announced. Mischa returns to the horror/thriller genre although unlike her previous films, this movie seems a little more youth orientated and seems to be more of an ensemble.
Here is a brief synopsis:
A group of friends descend upon a remote wilderness area to camp and party reuniting after a year apart. Their decision to embark on a short exploration of an unknown cave system turns into a horrific struggle for survival. Can they find the light before the darkness finds them?
Also according to IMDB, Mischa will be playing the character of Allie. Here is an extract from a press interview about the movie talking about Allie:
Q: Is there a favorite character that you think the audience will be drawn to-(in a lot of movies people can usually sympathize or relate to one character over others?)
A: Allie, definately Allie – shes the protagonist. You will see everything through her eyes.
There is also a promotional trailer already floating around the web before the movie has started filming. I’m thinking some scenes were shot to secure financing? Principal photography is supposed to begin in August. Here is the teaser trailer:
The film also already has an established Official Website as well as Twitter, Facebook and MySpace pages. Visit all links for further information on the film. Mischa hasn’t been officially announced as part of the movie but there should be an announcement made on Twitter shortly.
