Earlier today, word got out that actress Evan Rachel Wood had exited the ostensibly troubled “Ten Things I Hate About Life”.
The semi-sequel to “Ten Things I Hate About You” had been off and on filming for over a year, but ran out of finance – putting everything on pause.
Now, the producers are coming after actress Wood for leaving the movie.
“The lawsuit is preposterous and simply a bullying tactic from financially troubled producers”, Team Wood responded in a statement. “The production shut down in February 2013 when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in Nov. 2013 by which time the producers said they would have cleared up their issues. However, the producers still could not get their act together, nor did they pay Evan money that was owed. Repeated subsequent promises by the producers to resume production and pay Evan also turned out to be false. Enough is enough. The producers, not Evan, have breached contract.”
The producers are trying to lure $30 million from the “True Blood” alum for exiting their picture – - which might not have continued anyway.
The Gil Junger-directed film tells of two teens who bond after discovering they’re both to keen to end their lives.
