Maxim covergirl and beloved "O.C." corpse Mischa Barton will play the lead in the indie "Homecoming."
Described by Variety as a "stalker thriller," the project is set to co-star Matt Long ("Jack & Bobby"), Jessica Stroup ("Reaper"), and Michael Landes ("The Wedding Bells").
Frank Hannah's ("The Cooler") script focuses on a golden boy who returns to his hometown with his new girlfriend only to discover that his old high school flame (Barton) has gone just a little "Fatal Attraction" on his memory.
"Homecoming" will be directed by Morgan J. Freeman, the "Hurricane" helmer who probably has to say "No, not *that* Morgan Freeman" an awful lot.
Since being killed off "The O.C." at the end of its third season, Barton has been busy making unreleased movies. Her potential upcoming credits include "Closing the Ring," "Virgin Territory," "Finding tATu," "Walled In," "Don't Fade Away" and "Assassination of a High School President."Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
