USA Today has shared the trailer from one of Mischa’s upcoming movies Mining for Ruby.
It appears as though the movie will be available for download via VOD from August 1st. Mischa only shot for this movie for a very short time, so it appears that she’ll likely only have limited screen time.
Mining for Ruby unearths love, Alaskan style.
Directed by Zoe Quist, the indie drama — on video on demand beginning Aug. 1 — stars Daniel Ponickly as a widower named Jack who’s in a downward spiral of depression, and Antoinette Kalaj is Ruby, a grad student studying environmental engineering in the 49th state, where the movie was actually filmed.
After incessant persuading from his sister (Mischa Barton), Jack finally leaves the cozy confines of his cabin in Alaska and luckily meets and falls quickly for Ruby. However, this love story is not destined to be an easy one — she not only has a psycho ex (Jonathan Bennett) who likes a good scrap but Ruby also throws the whole town into a tizzy when, against the advice of her professor (Billy Zane), she inadvertently gets embroiled in a poisonous waste crisis.

A few production stills from Mischa’s upcoming role in Mining for Ruby have been added. The film also stars Billy Zane and Jonathan Bennett.
Jack (Daniel Ponickly, “Mona Lisa Smile”, “Raw Cut”) is a widower struggling with his continued depression as he falls for Ruby (Antoinette Kalaj, “Riddick”, “Don Jon”), a passionate environmental engineering grad student who is embroiled in a poisonous waste controversy. Due to the encouragement of his sister (Mischa Barton, “The OC”, “The Sixth Sense”), Jack finally leaves his Alaskan cabin for the first time in months and meets Ruby, only to be confronted by her crazed ex-boyfriend, Andrew (Jonathan Bennett, “Mean Girls”, “Van Wilder”). Against the warnings of her mentor – Prof. Goodwell (Billy Zane, “Titanic”, “Big Kiss”) – Ruby exposes the city to an environmental crisis, thrusting her grant funding – along with her doctoral research trip – into jeopardy. As their friendship blooms into something deeper, Ruby and Jack discover that love can be found anywhere, even in Alaska.
Here is the poster for one of Mischa’s upcoming movies titled Mining for Ruby. The film also stars Billy Zane and Jonathan Bennett with Antoinette Kalaj and Daniel Ponickly.
