No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. Evan Rachel Wood is starring in 10 Things I Hate About Life, the "we... don't know how to feel about this" followup to the classic 10 Things I Hate About You. The film will be helmed by the original's director Gil Junger, and produced by the producer of the 1999 teen movie classic, Andrew Lazar.
According to Deadline
, the Golden Globe-nominated star, last seen on the big screen in 2011 alongside Ryan Gosling
and George Clooney
in the political drama The Ides of March
, has nabbed the female lead in the film "about a young man and woman who meet while each is attempting to commit suicide, and they find in each other some great reasons to keep on living." Captain American
star Haley Atwell
was first name attached to the project. Hollywood.com reached out to Wood's rep for confirmation of the news, but they could not be reached for comment.
There's no word yet on who would be playing the male lead opposite the 25-year-old True Blood
actress in the film, which will reportedly begin production soon in Los Angeles. Might we suggest her husband Jamie Bell
Wood will next be seen in the action comedy The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman with Rupert Grint, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Melissa Leo, and Mads Mikkelsen, which is slated for a 2013 release.
