Michael Madsen and Daniel Baldwin will co-star in the crime film from mew [sic] Italian production and finance group AMBI Pictures.
Mischa Barton (The O.C.) and Danny Trejo (Machete Kills) have signed on to star in Hope Lost, a new crime thriller being financed and produced by Italian company AMBI Pictures.
B-movie favorites Michael Madsen (Sin City) and Daniel Baldwin (Vampires) have signed on to co-star in the feature set in the world of sex trafficking. Italian director David Petrucci will helm the feature. Shooting is set to kick off later this month in Rome.
Barton will play a young Romanian girl, bored with small town life, who dreams of entering the glamorous world she sees on Italian soap operas. One night at a club she meets Gabriele, who claims to be a TV producer who wants to cast her in a reality TV show he is making in Italy. But when she arrives, she is sold to the pimp Manol ( Madsen) and forced to make her living on the street. Things get darker with the arrival of Ettore (Trejo), a sadist who makes snuff movies.
AMBI toppers Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi will produce Hope Lost together with Cosetta Turco. Danielle Maloni is the executive producer.
The feature is the latest on AMBI’s slate, which includes the Phillip Roth adaptation The Humbling, which Barry Levinson is attached to direct and has Al Pacino, Mandy Patinkin, Kyra Sedgwick, Charles Grodin and Dianne Wiest attached to star.
The Rome-based group recently wrapped production on the action thriller Sights of Death, which stars Danny Glover, Daryl Hannah and Rutger Hauer alongside Madsen and Stephen Baldwin.

L.A. SLASHER is a satirical take on the horror genre set against the celebrity obsessed world of modern day Los Angeles. The biggest stars, on the hugest billboards are stars of Reality TV, or people who have found fame through the masses of social media. Famous for being famous, a concept that has sent one person to their breaking point….
Los Angeles is running wild with speculation over the mysterious abduction of a famous reality TV star. The speculation grows into fear as she is discovered wandering the Hollywood hills after an apparent brutal stabbing. Responsibility is claimed by a mysterious stranger calling themselves the LA Slasher. The confession is made on Twitter and Instagram accounts, whose followers immediately start to increase as the revelation is announced on the news.
Here is a teaser trailer for Mischa’s upcoming action/thriller Beyond Justice. The film co-stars Vinnie Jones and Danny Trejo. Trailer via Fire Born Studios.
A young criminal defense attorney struggles with a homicide case that is not as cut and dry as it appears while battling a drinking habit. The story goes beyond the lives of those directly related to the case and shines a much needed spotlight on the horrific world of human trafficking in the United States.
We have had a slew of production announcements featuring Mischa this week, and today is no different. IMDb has added a new movie to Mischa’s page called “Beyond Justice.” Last week there were some Twitter reports that Mischa was on set filming scenes for a movie also starring Danny Trejo – at the time I assumed these were maybe re-shoots for “L.A. Slasher” which they also both star in. But it now turns out it’s a separate film entirely. There’s not a lot of information on this movie that I can find out there, other than the listed genre which is action/thriller. Hopefully more info surfaces soon.
