London: Mischa Barton is reportedly quitting Hollywood to settle down here with her new boyfriend, DJ Ali Love.

"Mischa`s found a great new guy. She can`t wait to move to London to be with him. It`s already in the works," said a source close to the star.

The former `OC` star also hopes to launch a stage career and has set her sights on landing a leading role in a production in the UK capital`s West End theatre district, Contactmusic reported.

"Instead of Hollywood gigs, Mischa`s focusing on a stage career in the West End. She wants to spend a year in London and see where things go with both the theatre and Ali. She`s so happy to be starting afresh. She`s so in love!", the source added.

The 24-year-old beauty had previously admitted she "feels more comfortable in England", where she was born and lived for some time.

Barton has been romantically linked to a number of stars including singers Luke Pritchard and Johnny Borrell. She went public with love for Ali at the Lovebox festival last month.
