I posted about Mischa’s involvement in this film in the development update a few days ago, but now the role is excitingly receiving some proper press courtesy of Variety.
And how awesome are the pictures showcased above of Mischa’s transformation into other memorable icons from the glory days of Hollywood and beyond. We can’t wait to see Mischa transformed into Jean Harlow.
Here is the story:
Mischa Barton has been cast as Jean Harlow in the biopic “By Love Reclaimed” for ThunderBall Films and Mania Entertainment.
Nuala Barton and Mario Domina are producing “By Love Reclaimed.” Adrian Finkelstein and Valerie Fanich will exec produce.
The script, written by Finkelstein, centers on the 1932 scandal in which MGM producer and Harlow’s husband Paul Bern was found shot to death in their Benedict Canyon Home — two months after Harlow had married him.
Harlow, one of the biggest stars of the 1930s, died in 1937 of kidney failure.
Barton, who is currently in London filming “The Hoarder,” recently wrapped the indie feature “Starcrossed.” She is repped by Artist International and Adam Trahan.
