A coming soon splash page has been uploaded to the official website of Mischa’s upcoming psycho thriller titled “Homecoming”. Mischa stars alongside “90210′s” Jessica Stroup and Matt Long from ABC’s upcoming new legal dramedy “The Deep End”. The movie will be released in select cinems on July 17th. Further details will be provided as they come about.
Mike is a small-town star athlete who is the first in his family to attend college, receiving a football scholarship to prestigious Northwestern University. When he returns home over Christmas break to the people he left behind – his family and friends – they are all surprised to see him with a new girlfriend, Elizabeth, a pretty rich girl from Chicago. No one is more shocked than Mike’s homecoming queen ex-girlfriend, Shelby, who immediately wants to be rid of Elizabeth and plots to take care of the problem. The story takes many twists and turns as Shelby does everything it takes to get Mike back.
Screen captures from Assassination of a High School President have been uploaded. Mischa stars with Reece Thompson, Bruce Willis and Luke Grimes in this dark comedy. The movie premiered in Russia last week on a cable television service so the captures aren’t high quality but good enough. Huge thanks to Maz for taking the time to cap!
Note: Album of captures features mild nudity. Visitor discretion advised.
The film is unfortunately backed by a now bankrupt film distributor so at this stage it seems unlikely we’ll get an English release any time soon. Hopefully some other company will come to the rescue and at least release the movie on DVD. Bad time for indepedent film.
MISCHA BARTON has become the latest victim of the credit crunch – her new movie has stalled as makers can’t find the cash to distribute the film.
The actress appears alongside Bruce Willis in Assassination Of A High School President, but the project is in need of investment before a release date is set.
And Barton even claims movie distributors, Yari Film Group, have been forced to file for bankruptcy.
She says, “They just can’t get the funding to distribute it. The movie is complete and ready to go but there is no release date set and it is not looking likely there will be one.”
The film premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and was slated for release in March (09).

Fango got word about a pair of independent features spotlighting different kinds of crazy heading for big screens in the coming months. One, Morgan J. Freeman’s HOMECOMING, is played straight, while Luke Ricci’s HOW TO BE A SERIAL KILLER is pitched as a gruesome satire.
In HOMECOMING, Freeman (no relation to the similarly named actor) returns to the bad-girl territory he previously explored in AMERICAN PSYCHO II: ALL AMERICAN GIRL. Mischa Barton stars as Shelby, a small-town girl and former homecoming queen who’s just a tad upset when her former beau Mike (Matt Long) comes home from college for Christmas break with his new girlfriend Elizabeth (THE HILLS HAVE EYES II’s Jessica Stroup). Shelby wants Mike back for herself, and embarks on a campaign of terror to get Elizabeth out of the picture. Paper Street Films opens HOMECOMING in New York and LA on July 17, and expands the release in the subsequent weeks. A website will be open soon here.
