Ben Banks is an upcoming comedy-drama film starring Mischa Barton. It was written and directed by Bryce Clark. The film is currently in post production and is anticipated to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.[1]



Ben Banks is a lazy stoner but he looks to turn his life around with his enthusiasm for journalism. He shares an equal enthusiasm for Amy (Barton), a former porn star. On his journey for fulfillment he befriends a polygamist mechanic and meets some truly villainous characters.[2]



The film is based on a junior communication major at Dixie State College of Utah, Ben Banks, a real-life acquaintance of Clark's. They had worked together on a commercial and Banks made an impression on the filmmaker; “there’s something about his guy; it’s interesting--I don’t know what it is.” Banks later shared stories of his life experience and Clark developed these into a fact and fiction based screenplay.[1]

Along with Justin Lyon and Jason deVilliers, Clark developed Signal Films, a production company for the film and future projects.[1]

It was primarily filmed in St. George, Utah and Las Vegas. Scenes were also shot at Dixie State College of Utah. Filming completed at the end of August 2010.[1]
