10 Things I Hate About Life (4) header

10 Things I Hate About You was only a modest hit when it first opened in 1999, but it’s demonstrated some surprising staying power over the years. While most teen romcoms of the era have been lost to time, 10 Things I Hate About You was revived as an ABC Family sitcom just a few years ago. And that clip of Heath Ledger serenading Julia Stiles still makes the Internet rounds on the regular, at least among my circle of nostalgic 30somethings.

Now the Shakespeare-inspired comedy is getting another new lease on life, this time in the form of some kind of spinoff/sequel thing. I’m purposely keeping it vague because it’s not quite clear how 10 Things I Hate About Life is related to the original, aside from involvement of original producer Andrew Lazar and original director Gil Junger. This one stars Evan Rachel Wood and Thomas McDonell (Prom) as a young couple who meet cute when they both attempt suicide. Seriously. Check out the first official still after the jump.

Captain America: The First Avenger star Hayley Atwell is set to play one of the leads. More details after the jump.
