10 Things I Hate About Life sounds like… 10 Things I Hate About You, right? Well, it just sounds. It’s not going to be a sequel to that movie. But it’s going to be a comedy, and two great ladies are on board to star in the whole thing! We’ve just learned that Janet Montgomery will join the previously announced Evan Rachel Wood in an upcoming indie project which comes from director Gil Junger. Confused? Check out the rest of this report to learn more…
So, we all know that Gil Junger stands behind 10 Things I Hate About You. And now, he will direct 10 Things I Hate About Life. Now you say – well, of course it’s going to be a sequel! And Junger says – no guys, it will be a story that advances the situations.
What’s the difference? I have no idea!
The only thing I know about the whole thing at this moment is that Montgomery is attached to star as an unhappily married dog groomer and best friend of Wood’s character, who has terrified her friend with a suicide attempt.
In an intervew with Variety, Junger revealed that he was inspired to write the script after coming across a man who had committed suicide at a scenic overlook. He also added that the original pic had remained popular enough that he made more in residuals from it last year than he received for directing it in 1999.
So, who knows, maybe there’s some potential in 10 Things I Hate About Life after all?
Let’s wait and see, stay tuned for more!
