Mischa Barton has signed on to star in indie drama “Fast Life,” directed and written by music video helmer Rock Jacobs.
Jessie Rusu (“96 Minutes”) and Artist Int. are producing. Shooting is expected to start in the summer in Los Angeles
“Fast Life” is centered around an ad exec who falls in with an unsavory fast money crowd, only to be drawn to its antithesis when introduced to an unimpressed young woman, portrayed by Barton.
“Fast Life” will be Jacobs’ feature directorial debut. He has directed music videos for Vanessa Hudgens and Miranda Cosgrove.
Barton, best known for the “O.C.,” has starred recently in supernatural thrillers “Into the Dark,” which was shopped at Cannes last year, and “A Resurrection,” opposite the late Michael Clarke Duncan in one of his final roles.
This project sounds very exciting! Hopefully the rest of the casting is good.
Candids of Mischa out and about in West Hollywood have been added.
Here’s another promo shot for Mischa’s iPhone 5 Uunique London cases collection. This one is via Hello Magazine.
You can check out the collection on the Uunique London website.
Acting from the age of eight British-born Mischa Barton moved to America and made her international breakthrough in the television series The O.C. She has since starred in a wide variety of movies including Notting Hill, St. Trinian’s and Homecoming.
In my teens I felt like one of The Beatles.
I was sixteen when I joined the cast of The O.C. and it was a huge global hit in more than fifty countries. Wherever I went in the world I’d be recognised. In 2003 it was like the first wave of what we know as modern celebrity culture. In my mid-teens I had to learn to surf that unbelievably huge wave. It was like being caught up in a kind of crazed hysteria. Celebrities were considered fair game and everything was blown completely out of proportion.
