Mischa Barton (TVs â€œThe OCâ€) is circling â€œThe Science of Coolâ€, a new comedy from director Tamara Tunie and writer Eric Goren.
The pic, said to be in the vein of the John Hughesâ€™ teen comedies from the Reagan-era, tells of two teenagers, the biggest science geeks in school, who come upon a formula which can transform nerds into studs.
Barton will play the object of desire, Jane.
â€œFriday Night Lightsâ€â€™ Jeremy Sumpter is also onboard.
Writer Goren also penned the upcoming “The Throways”, a New York City-set thriller starring Luke Goss.
