Check out out the trailer for Mischa’s upcoming feature film Starcrossed also starring Grant Harvey, Eric Roberts and Kristin Carey. The movie will have its premiere at the San Diego Film Festival in a few days.
Also, here is an excerpt from an interview talking about Mischa’s involvement with the film.
Casting was the first task. Reed had Barton in mind because of the English roots of both the character and the actress. Once Barton had “loved” the script and signed on, they auditioned a ton of young male leads in LA, trying to find the right fit and the right chemistry.
Reed said that when Harvey and Barton were in a room together it was instantly “electric,” and they knew they had found their leads.
Reed said he thinks the movie is the best performance Barton has ever done, and he believes that Harvey, best known for a role on the TV show “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” is going to be a big star. Part of what makes their performances so good are Mohseni’s words, he said.
“What he wrote is so rich and so deep,” he said of the script, which he called darkly romantic, following two lost souls who make a connection over a matter of hours.
The film was shot over 16 days at the end of October 2013. Post-production work started in January, the beginning of a long march until just this week when all the details on the final cut were finished.

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.
