It has been confirmed that the 90's hit 10 Things I Hate About You is getting a sequel 10 Things I Hate About Life. I can't tell you how much this is a bad idea, you don't touch things that are great and don't need a sequel.
There have been many rumors over the years that they were going to do a sequel and they even tried turning it into a TV show that didn't really work out (it was rubbish) but there are some hope for the film Gil Junger who wrote the original is back to write and direct the sequel, which makes me feel a little bit better about it because they are sticking with the same people, a lot of sequels down fall is that they change the writer and the director.
The Story line for the original wasn't genius but i worked for the film, a boy meets a girl he really likes, girl can't date unless her sister does (dads rules) so boy tries to set sister up with another boy just so he can't go out with the girl. Its a bit complicated but it makes for a great film.
Hayley Atwell has been reported to have been cast in the sequel but it won't replace the original cast that we fell in love. The bad boy Patrick Verona played by the amazing Heath Ledger who is amazing, the geeky and adorable Cameron played by Joseph Gordon Levitt and Julia Stiles as Cat, an angry teen who hates everyone in high school and has an over protective father and her sister Bianca is one of the popular girls.
The highlight of the film has to be Heath Ledger singing 'Can't take my eyes off of you'
If you haven't seen the original then you should because it is one of the best teen dramas out there and just a really great film.
I don't see how the sequel is going to work because you can't beat the original!!!
