Intandem Films has pulled together $10 million in financing for Gil Junger's rom-com "10 Things I Hate About Life" which will begin shooting this November in Los Angeles reports Variety.

Despite the presence of the same director and a similar title to 1999's ''10 Things I Hate About You", this is NOT a sequel to that film but has a "similar spirit". This time the story follows two people who meet when they are trying to commit suicide in a scenic spot.

"Captain America" actress Hayley Atwell was attached at one point to star but she's now out due to scheduling issues. Junger, Gary Smith and Andrew Lazar will produce.
