Looks Mischa has signed on to star in a new comedy called The Science of Cool. IMDB is reporting that Mischa’s character will be named Jane and the official MySpace for the film and the production company are also reporting Mischa as the latest addition to the cast. For all the Friday Night Lights fans, also starring in the film is Jeremy Sumpter (who played J.D. McCoy).
There is a formula for being cool!
This is another independent film with a tiny budget of around $6 million (also according to IMDB). And from the MySpace is this take on the film: The Science of Cool promises to be a hilarious, modern take on some of the most classic 1980’s teen films such as Weird Science, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Sixteen Candles.
Thanks to the awesome Marie who is an absolute gun at tracking down photos, a couple of stills and a candid shot from the set of Mischa’s upcoming Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain have been added. Looks like an interesting role for Mischa!
The trailer for Mischa’s upcoming independent drama “Don’t Fade Away” has surfaced online thanks to New Films International. I’m extremely happy to see Mischa in a drama like this.
Life was easy for Jackson White. With looks, brains, and athletic ability,the world’s possibilities seemed limitless. But, when he came to New York City to pursue a career in the music industry, he was so seduced by money and status that he lost track of who he was. Now, with both his personal and professional lives on the edge of ruin, he’s been called home to care for his dying father. While in North Carolina, he’ll have to confront the friends he lost track of and the girl he never met. Film stars Mischa Barton, Ryan Kwanten, Beau Bridges and Ja Rule.
Here is a first look at the poster for Mischa’s upcoming independent drama “Don’t Fade Away”. As you can tell by the poster, the film also stars True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten and veteran actor Beau Bridges.
DVD Active has uploaded a larger cover art for Mischa’s upcoming horror film “Walled In”. They have also mentioned that there will be a behind-the-scenes featuretee on the DVD with an expected street date of April 17th, 2009. This date actually contradicts the Amazon.com street of March 17th, 2009. I also checked the website of the film’s distributor and they have the March 17th date listed. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Anchor Bay Home Entertainment has announced Walled In which stars Mischa Barton, Cameron Bright, and Deborah Kara Unger. The new horror will be available to own from the 17th April. The film itself will be presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, along with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track. The only extra material will be a making of featurette.
In 1993, sixteen bodies were found entombed within the Malestrazza Building, a mysterious apartment complex built by one of the world’s most renowned, yet eccentric, architects. The killer was never caught. Fifteen years later, newly graduated structural engineer Sam Walczak (Mischa Barton of THE O.C.) arrives to prepare the site for demolition. But this massive concrete crypt is not entirely empty: Its halls are lined with secrets. Its rooms are filled with fear. And behind its walls, the ultimate horror has lay waiting…until now. Cameron Bright (X-MEN: THE LAST STAND), Deborah Kara Unger (SILENT HILL) and Noam Jenkins (SAW IV) co-star in this saga of terror, torment and shocking twists based on the best-selling horror novel.
A preview of the poster for Mischa’s upcoming critically acclaimed Assassination of a High School President has surfaced online. Big thanks to Amira for the find!
One of the teen world’s biggest idols has been shopping, sipping chai and taking in the sights in Hyderabad. Mischa Barton aka Marissa Cooper of the OC fame, is filming Ravi Kumar’s Bhopal: A Prayer for Rains in the city.
At her side are Kal Penn (from Namesake) and Martin Sheen (from East Wing). The 21-year-old arrived in India early this week to shoot for the movie which also stars Rajpal Yadav and Tanishtha Chatterjee.
A source from the unit said Mischa has been enjoying shooting in Hyderabad. “She seems to be in love with everyone there. Similar to her screen persona, she is like a bubbly fizz and is very-very curious to learn more about India.” Mischa’s been writing and posting videos about her stay in India on her blog too.
“Hey everyone! I’ve just begun filming Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain in Hyderabad, India – it’s truly amazing to have the opportunity to work in such an unbelievable place. I love being able to experience different cultures and lifestyle. Luckily, I had a break from filming, so I took that opportunity to check out a local market with my sister Hania and my friend Kal Penn. We caught some of it on tape and #8230;” (see pics above) The film is based on the 1984 Bhopal Gas Tragedy.
Rajpal Yadav said, “It’s the biggest film of my career so far. I can’t talk much about it. All I can say at this point is, Mischa is a wonderful person. She is beautiful both by her looks and at heart. She loves the colours and food of India. Both Kal and Mischa are great co-stars to work with.”
It’s a 55-day schedule. Rajpal is back in Mumbai, but the others are still in Hyderabad.
Also, Mischa’s official blog has been updated with a couple of new videos. She’s now in India filming Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain.
