A couple of promotional photos from “The Beautiful Life” have been added as well as a few extra promotional stills from “Homecoming”. I’m surprised there haven’t been any new candids the last few days as the paparazzi always manage to find Mischa when she’s back in the US.
Unfortunately Assassination of a High School President was unable to overcome Yari Film Group’s bankrupty and according to Walmart it will be arriving on DVD June 30th, 2009. Thanks to David for the tip. Details are limited at this stage apart from the fact that the movie will be rated R and released in widescreen.
DATE PUSHED TO OCTOBER 13th, 2009
Director Brett Simon’s feature debut is an intricately crafted high school drama that strays from the typical teenage fare and manages to keep what at first seems like a familiar plot twisting and turning until the very last frame. Combining a keen sense of relief that no one can make you go back to high school with an equally strong desire to return and make all of the cool kids realize that there’s life past graduation, “Assassination Of A High School President” deftly captures a new kind of grown-up teenage angst. Sophomore Bobby Funke, played with witty nuance by Reece Thompson, is a self-described newspaper dork whose social skills are severely lacking in this high school hierarchy, yet he is instantly recognizable as the person with the most promising future in his class. Determined to win a spot in a coveted summer journalism program, he finds himself at the epicenter of a story that threatens the entire social structure of St. Donovan’s High School – everyone from jocks to misfits to Bruce Willis’s campy and over-the-top principal. The rest of the perfectly cast ensemble creates a high school from hell, where anything seems possible, especially since every character appears to be 16 going on 30. Giving any hints about the way this film turns out would only destroy the fun.

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).
