Miss Mischa Barton, the waifish former Marissa Cooper from "The O.C.", is a busy lady these days. Currently working alongside Bruce Willis in Assassination of a High School President and having just wrapped up production on Finding t.A.T.u., Barton has landed another role. This time she'll be solving mysteries and getting goosebumps in the psychological thriller Walled In.
Based on the bestselling French novel Les Emmeures, the movie will follow Barton's character, "a demolition company rep who supervises the razing of a mysterious building and discovers horrifying secrets and past inhabitants entombed within its walls by a vicious murderer."
The movie will be French director Gilles Paquet-Brenner's first English-language project, so that should be interesting. I'm also curious to find out if Paquet-Brenner can get some good performances out of Barton, since I think she often comes across as wooden. But maybe the psychological thriller is her genre and she just hasn't had the chance to shine yet.
