Wood Joins 10 Things I Hate About Life
She's set for Gil Junger's film

Evan Rachel Wood

In May, word broke that writer-director Gil Junger was going back to the 10 Things... well for 10 Things I Hate About Life, a film that is less direct sequel and more spiritual follow-up. Hayley Atwell appeared set to star in the movie. Now, though, Deadline reports that Evan Rachel Wood is locked into a lead role and there’s no mention of Captain America’s Peggy.

Wood will play a young woman who meets a guy just as they’re both attempting to commit suicide. As they bond over their shared miserable lives, they discover something worth staying around for.

"It is the story of two relatable, ordinary people with normal jobs and normal desires whose seemingly great lives have become unmanageable," Junger told Variety when the story first broke. " Their chance meeting is so awkward, so raw, and so funny, they postpone their intentions and go their separate ways."

It seems to be a similar theme to French film The Girl On The Bridge or upcoming  the Nick Hornby adaptation A Long Way Down, which finds a group of strangers meeting when they go to a roof on New Year’s Eve planning to jump off, and end up finding solace as a group. But this promises to be more of a rom-com.

Wood has been busy of late, working on such films as The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman, Barefoot and A Case Of You. 10 Things I Hate About Life is scheduled to start production shortly in LA.
