Mischa Barton, Ryan Eggold star in Mark Edwin Robinson’s romantic thriller, bowing in October
Epic Pictures Releasing, the distribution arm of L.A.-based Epic Pictures Group, has picked up worldwide rights to Mark Edwin Robinson’s romantic thriller “I Will Follow You Into the Dark” for a fall theatrical release.
Pic stars Mischa Barton as a woman who, reeling from the death of her parents, becomes attached to an alluring man (Ryan Eggold) whose sudden disappearance sends her and her friends into a haunted high-rise to find him. Leah Pipes and Jaz Martin also appear in the film, which has played the Hollywood Film Festival and the Manhattan Film Festival.
A Castlight production, “I Will Follow” is exec produced by Mark Darling, David C. Robinson and R. Jeffrey Conner alongside producers Christine Holder, Mark Holder and Danny Roth.
Epic Pictures Releasing initially launched as a distributor of Epic Pictures Group’s own content but has since expanded to included other titles such as “I Will Follow.” The f ilm and TV sales company — which finances, produces and distributes commercial features and 3D animated pics — has released a string of genre films including “11-11-11,” “Space Dogs 3D” and “V/H/S” (non-U.S.). The company recently exec produced “Vikingdom 3D,” produced “Big Ass Spider!” and is currently in production on the sequel to “Space Dogs.”
“I Will Follow You Into the Dark” is set to open in theaters Oct. 11.
Mischa’s upcoming romantic horror I Will Follow You Into the Dark has almost hit 3,000 likes on Facebook. Still a couple of hundred to go before reaching that number, so hopefully Mischa fans can make it happen.
Bloody Disgusting caught up with Mischa to chat about her upcoming romantic horror I Will Follow You Into the Dark. Personally, this is my most anticipated Mischa feature. Check out the trailer if you’ve not seen it. Or even if you have seen it. There probably should be a spoiler alert associated with the text since it seems to give away a few details that aren’t prevalent in the trailer.
Mark Edwin Robinson’s I Will Follow You Into the Dark (the film’s sales agent, Epic Pictures, is selling it internationally as Into the Dark) is set to come out later this year. The film stars Mischa Barton (“The OC”, The Sixth Sense) as the troubled Sophia Monet. I recently caught up with Barton at her home to discuss the film, her character and some of the more intense moments to shoot on set.
In the film, “A young woman (Mischa Barton) who is severely depressed after the deaths of both her parents retreats within herself, only to be drawn out of her depression by an unexpected romance with a man named Adam (Ryan Eggold). After Adam mysteriously disappears into the depths of a haunted apartment building, she vows to pursue him, even if it means crossing into the world of the supernatural.” Leah Pipes and Ryan Eggold also star.
The movie deals with a lot of grief and loss. What was it like charting your character’s arc through that?
For me, Sophia is one of these people who is making huge revelations about her life quite quickly and is kind of confused about everything. This whole rejecting God thing is a huge deal for her. A lot of people go through life not questioning things and, when they do, it’s a massive overhaul. That’s where her grief comes from. The crux of the story for me was the love story between her and Ryan [Eggold, who plays Adam in the film]. In order for her to go to the depths of what she goes to, the most important thing is that this love was real and palpable and that the audience wouldn’t question it. And then the other side of it was, “would it be scary enough for me?”
Now that I’ve seen it, the film has turned out more ethereal than I expected. Which I like as well. It is more of an Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind life after death kind of curious side of things as opposed to a straight horror. I think Ryan thought it would err more on the side of just being scary, but it’s not. It’s more about life and love and what’s worth it and what your beliefs are.
As far as her grief, I play grief well. I’ve always played these quite complicated, layered, dark, depressed characters. Sophia isn’t someone with a huge backbone when it comes to things. I mean she is, but she isn’t. She’s strong enough to know what she wants but she’s so uncertain about so many things in her life, but what she’s sure about is Adam.
With the premiere screening of I Will Follow You Into the Dark now over, check out a glowing extract of Mischa’s performance from the first review of the movie.
As Sophia, Mischa Barton is strong, confident and cynical; you gravitate towards and understand Sophia’s emotions, her hesitancy at attachment and then her fervent desire to hold on once she crosses the emotional bridge and allows herself to care, connect and love with Adam. What makes Barton’s performance such a standout, however, is that THANKFULLY, she maintains that fervor and determination once Adam disappears and they head up to the 21st floor. There is never any sign of panic. She remains confident and rational in her resolve. Barton’s performance as a strong woman in a supernatural setting ranks right up there with Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Buffy while her emotional cadence as a woman battling her own heart and mind is exquisite.
