Former “The OC” star Mischa Barton has joined the cast of the thriller “Lost Hope”, starring opposite Danny ‘Machete ‘Trejo and Michael Madsen.

The intense thriller tackling prostitution and sex trafficking tells of Sofia (Barton), a beautiful 20 year old girl leading a somewhat boring life in her small native town in Romania and dreaming a different life, anything close to the characters of Italian soap operas.

Sofia’s life is drastically changed after meeting Gabriele in a club one night and being swept off her feet. That very same night she leaves her country with Gabriele for Italy to take part in a reality show Gabriele claims to be involved with. Reality hits Sofia very hard, as in truth she is sold by Gabriele to Manol (Michael Madsen), a pimp, and forced to sell her body in the streets by Manol’s lackeys – Fabian and Marius.

Sofia’s once boring life becomes the worst hell ever where the only glimmer of light is the friendship of Alina, another whore like herself, and Eva, a strange client.

Sofia and Alina are doomed to a yet worse scenario as they are bought by Ettore (Danny Trejo), a brutal man who intends to torture them in a snuff movie. With only a mare hope of survival, the two girls can only escape death through Eva’s Agency.

The film is being directed by David Petrucci from a screenplay written by Francesco Trento, Damiano Giacomelli and Francesco Teresi in collaboration with Loretta Tersigni. Additional cast include Andrey Chernishov, Francesca Agostini and Alessia Navarro.

The film will begin shooting this month in Rome. Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi are producing the film through their AMBI Pictures banner. Cosetta Turco is also a producer and Danielle Maloni is executive producer.
