Just wanted to do a quick wrap-up of all the movies currently in development with Mischa attached. As we’ve learnt over the years, in development doesn’t mean that a film is moving forward to production, so just think of them all as strictly possibilities.
A renegade Moscow detective defies government pressure to investigate the assassination of the mysterious assassination of a maverick reporter, who covered the Chechen war.
A young woman, distraught from witnessing the murder of her parents as a child, develops her own unique martial art by playing video games. It’s because of this she suddenly finds herself embroiled in the world of underground fighting.
Emma, an American girl aspiring to become a sculptor, is struggling between her job as a waitress and a failing relationship with her wealthy boyfriend, Jefrey. She soon shares a mutual physical attraction with Jean-Pierre, an unsuccessful French painter working in an antique shop. But Emma’s strange behavior, characterized by tormenting and unexplained panic attacks, jeopardizes both Jean-Pierre’s and her life at times.
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.
Devoted Dad, Peter Frawley, is the only man alive who knows he’s also Thirteen, the UK’s most successful hit man. When someone takes out a contract on Frawley and kidnaps his son, Thirteen finds himself inadvertently hired to kill himself.
Ella, a woman who is convinced her fiancé has a secret and is hiding something from her in an isolated underground storage facility. In her search for answers she finds herself locked in the facility, imprisoned in a maze of endless corridors. She reaches her fiancé’s lock-up, but the secret she uncovers is something far worse than she had ever imagined. People have been held captive, some tortured for years, and in order to survive Ella must join forces with them. But whoever, or whatever, is responsible for holding them there slowly picks them off one by one as they desperately attempt to escape the cavernous lair.
Young married couple inherits an old Southern plantation, once owned by an eccentric 19th Century magician.
THE PROMOTION is a raunchy buddy comedy about three people in their mid 20’s, who are embroiled in an all out war with each other, for a promotion at a highly prestigious Manhattan advertising agency.
DragonMan: The Adventures of Luke Starr (trilogy)
Also includes DragonMan: Face of the Unknown and DragonMan and the Poseidon Encounter
Teenager Luke Starr appears to be living a rather dull uneventful life in Milwaukee, Wisconsin until his friends go missing and leads him into a mysterious dark world and confrontation with a nameless, faceless mysterious dark force.
A former live-in boyfriend and girlfriend, backslide into the horrible sex-based relationship they had. They part as friends having learned what they really want out of a relationship.
Of Love and Evil
Chilling, archetypal, epic love story about an infamous pact made between a young woman and the devil in the sixteenth century that plays out today against the backdrop of social media.
A Study in Red: The Secret Journal of Jack the Ripper (trilogy)
Also includes Legacy of the Ripper and Requiem for the Ripper
This dark psychological thriller tells of the incredible and terrifying events that surround psychiatrist Robert Cavendish when he inherits a decrepit, yellowed journal from his family. The journal appears to have been written by the infamous Whitechapel murderer, who terrorized the streets of the East End of London in 1888. Filled with dramatic imagery and an underlying sense of foreboding and danger, this compelling novel will certainly lend itself well to the transformation from page to screen.
By Love Reclaimed
Jean Harlow returns to clear husband’s name – On July 2, 1932, after a three year secret love affair, MGM producer, Paul Bern marries screen icon Jean Harlow. Two months later, he is found shot to death in their Benedict Canyon Home.
It’s kind of mind-blowing that we’ve literally reached the decade mark for this website. It opened its doors back on January 11th, 2004 and almost immediately became the foremost source for all things Mischa Barton. We’ve survived the highs and lows, battling the haters and cheering the successes, and I think, like Mischa herself, we’re at a good and solid place right now. Not to get too sentimental on you, haha.
I apologize in advance for this long-winded and kinda self-indulgent post 😉
To go into a bit of history, since I think some of you have been visiting since day one, Shanna opened and maintained the site from January 2004. She ran the site extremely well which actually inspired me to open a website specially catering to fans of Marissa Cooper (It was called Coop, Marissa-Cooper.com). During 2004, Shanna also brought on a co-webmaster named Janine who remained with the site for years. Around the end of 2004, I was brought on as a part-time co-webmaster (well technically, I started as an “Australian correspondent” due to the extremely high level of press attention Mischa received in Australia).
During the end of 2004 and for a few years after that, I was splitting my time between this site and Marissa-Cooper.com. After the whole The O.C. debacle, I decided to close Marissa-Cooper.com and work exclusively on this site. So in effect, I merged the two sites together. Shanna and Janine eventually left this site, but it clearly would not be here without them starting it in the first place. Just in case you guys read this, thank you!! Oh, and I also want to thank Nat, who had a brief stint as a co-webmaster too.
During the site’s heyday, we were getting upwards of 30,000 hits a day. Now bear in mind, none of us got/get paid to work on this site, so it was always very exciting to see so many people clicking and visiting. I think at last count we had accumulated over 10 million hits.
That pretty much sums up the journey of the site.
It’s a cool achievement that we’ve managed to keep up with regular updates over the years since it is genuinely not very common for a fan site to last this long. And it really is all because of Mischa. She probably doesn’t even know it, but her presence and her performance sincerely has had an enormous impact on a lot of fans.
Huge thanks to Mischa, just for being Mischa. A big thanks to Gertie, our amazing host from the Fan-Sites Network (plus Luciana and Annie who keep things running smoothly server-wise). And of course all the past and present fans who use this place as their source of Mischa Barton news and media.
Happy 10th Anniversary MISCHA-B.COM!
P.S. Hope you guys like the 10th Anniversary Edition design!
Photos of Mischa at the New Year’s Eve 2014 Celebration at Beacher’s Madhouse MGM have been added. It’s been a while since we’ve had some event photos.
It has been very slow going at the moment – limited news on the Mischa front coupled with the holiday season has created a perfect storm of no updates. The Daily Mail has been posting candids of Mischa so if you’re desperate for some Mischa news, check out their website. I don’t have anything really exciting to post, just a couple of stills (one is a repeat, just a different size) from Mischa’s upcoming role in American Beach House. Hopefully more regular updates will resume in the near future.
I had also intended on switching layouts as this current one was only supposed to be temporary, but the designer went MIA. So I’ll figure something out on the layout front soonish.
Check out this short interview of Mischa talking about her upcoming role in Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard.
Mischa alluded to filming a movie called “Starcrossed” back when she was promoting I Will Follow You Into the Dark (which BTW is currently available On Demand), but we didn’t know exactly when the film was due to begin production. Thanks to Mischa’s Twitter page, we now know the film has actually started filming. Mischa has also shared a few pics from the set which have been added to the gallery as well as some shots shared by @driafarr and @ginadeangelis1 on Instagram.
The cast includes Mischa opposite Grant Harvey, Ben Reed, Kristin Carey and Eric Roberts.
Here is a brief synopsis of the movie:
A struggling writer meets a mysterious woman and over the course of one remarkable night discovers what love is.
Photos of Mischa at the Dahlia Wolf Launch Party have been added.
Mischa Barton is Sophia Monet in the new movie I Will Follow You Into the Dark, which is in theaters now. Here, the O.C. alum, 27, gets personal with Us!
