Evan Rachel Woods has been sued by the producers of the 10 Things I Hate About You sequel, entitled 10 Things I Hate About Life, after she backed out of the film.
The actress is said to have been paid $300,000 for being cast as the lead in the film, which apparently shut down production in January 2013. However, when they resumed production in November 2013 Woods decided it wasn’t for her and turned the role down.
Woods rep said the lawsuit is a “bullying tactic from financially troubled producers”. According to him, the actress never got paid the money she was owed, and it was the producers who breached the contract.
Eek! Sequels can be a risky business but this one sounds particularly doomed!
