Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) is set to lead the romantic comedy 10 Things I Hate About Life.  According to Variety, Gil Junger, who wrote 1999′s 10 Things I Hate About You, which was based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, will direct from his own script.  The new film will advance situations from the original film, which starred Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  Strangely, Junger said that the inspiration for the sequel came from “coming across a man who had committed suicide at a scenic overlook.”  Keep in mind that this is a sequel to a high school comedy.
