Recently, Mischa has been linked to two new film roles. At this stage there has been no official press release or even a mention of either title by Mischa but nevertheless I thought I’d link to both roles here just in case something surfaces in the future.

The New Girl (aka Totally Perfect)
A plain jane teenager is offered a totalphysical makeover by a mysterious company which specializes in turning ugly ducklings into swans, guaranteeing her a place among the beautiful crowd at her school–but when she yearns for her old life back, she learns of the dark consequences of her transformation.

Hilary Duff and other actress have previously been attached to the role. Also keep in mind that this title has been in development since 2004 so it seems it regularly hits road blocks. and The New York Times both list this under Mischa’s biography. However, both sources have other false information in their databases.


The lives of four suburban families living in Upstate NY are juxtaposed before and after the 9/11 tragedy.

The Hollywood Reporter site offers a different synopsis:
Set mainly against the backdrop of the 2004 presidential election, Upstate follows a group of high schoolers conducting a mock election at school while facing dysfunctional families at home. The dramatic comedy will explore such subjects as post-adolescence and failing marriages and also use politics as a force and character.

The writer of the script says: “The movie’s really about how politics intersects in personal lives and how people use politics to band-aid personal problems instead of facing them”

There is even less information on this role and the sole source of this rumour has come from a user on the Internet Movie Databae.

And also don’t forget that Mischa was recently linked to Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain. No new information has been released on this either.

    I was the user on IMDb…I read about the movie Upstate on the official website of a new movie called Greta, strring Hilary Duff, Ellen Burstyn and Evan Ross. On Evan Ross’ bio on the website, it says “Evan Ross will next star opposite with Mischa Barton in the film, Upstate written and directed by Jessica Goldberg.”
