10 Things I Hate About You was the film that helped launch the career of the brilliant and gone-too-soon Heath Ledger. The film was based on Shakespeare’s The Taming Of The Shrew and saw a young Joseph Gordon-Levitt pay Ledger’s character to start wooing Julia Stiles’ angry outsider so that he could date her younger sister. For those who grew-up with the film it is a teen classic, a nineties Breakfast Club, or Pretty In Pink. Now over a decade later the original producer Andrew Lazar and director Gil Junger are treating us to a pseudo-sequel of sorts with 10 Things I Hate About Life.
Starring relative newcomer Thomas McDonell (Prom), and the incredibly talented Evan Rachel Wood (Thirteen), details are sketchy as to how closely related to it’s predecessor it will be, other than the obvious name link and involvement of Lazar and Junger. The plot details released »

"Forget everything you think you know about sequels!" should be, but isn't, the tagline for the upcoming 10 Things I Hate About Life, a follow-up to the Heath Ledger-Julia Stiles teen romance 10 Things I Hate About You. As we previously reported, unlike more or less every other sequel ever made, this one has nothing in common with its predecessor in terms of characters, plot, or setting—rather, just a few words in the title, and a veteran TV director who's hoping to revisit the success of his film debut. While the first film was an opposites-attract high »
Following the footsteps of the box office smash hit, 10 Things I Hate About You, the creative team of Producer, Andrew Lazar (Bound, Get Smart) and Gil Junger (10 Things I Hate About You, Black Knight) recommence with their eagerly awaited follow up called 10 Things I Hate About Life starring Evan Rachel Wood (Charlie Countryman, The Wrestler) and Thomas McDonnell (Forbidden Kingdom, Prom).
Previously, Gil Junger and Andrew Lazar brought the audience a unique insight into navigating a complicated high school life in the process launching the careers of Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles and featuring a hilarious and memorable performance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
10 Things I Hate About Life is the comedic story of a boy and girl who meet and fall in love - just when they are about to kill themselves!! Their crazy shared experiences and similar emotional state forms a bond that draws them both into happiness and takes »
Talks of a 10 Things I Hate About You sequel have been going around for a while now; however, it finally seems like it’s really happening. Entitled 10 Things I Hate About Life, the film will be written and directed by the original’s director Gil Junger. (It’s unclear what William Shakespeare’s contribution will be this time around.) It stars Evan Rachel Wood and Thomas McDonell as two people who are about to commit suicide before they meet and fall in love with each other. No, they aren’t playing Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger’s characters from the original, making the film less a direct sequel and more a “thematic spinoff.” As long as someone cries and reads a numeric poem, call it whatever you want. »

As per The Hollywood Reporter, Exclusive Media has scooped up international sales rights for the film, which also stars Scott Speedman (The Strangers) and Stephen Rea (The Crying Game). The movie marks the feature debut of Spanish filmmaker Lluis Quilez.

Billed as "a brass-knuckle punch in its startling revelation of teenage savages" and based on the book of the same name by Evan Hunter – aka crime writer Ed McBain – who drew on his own experiences as a teacher in the Bronx – Blackboard Jungle ushered in the age of the teenage delinquent. In London, Brooks's film attracted crowds of Teddy Boys, who slashed cinema seats, danced in the aisles and actually started a riot.
The reason for such shocking behaviour wasn't so much the film's content, which today garners a more sober 12 rating, but because of the use of »
Last year, you may have caught the apocalypse dramedy "It's A Disaster," starring David Cross, America Ferrara, Julia Stiles, and the comedy troupe The Vactioneers, made up of Jeff Grace, Kevin M. Brennan, Blaise Miller, and writer/director Todd Berger (here's our review if you need to catch up). Well, now one of The Vacationeers, Jeff Grace, is embarking on his own filmmaking journey and launching a Kickstarter campaign to get the wheels moving on the road movie "Folk Hero & Funny Guy." As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, "Girls" actor and indie filmmaker Alex Karpovsky (who will next be seen in the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis") has signed on to co-star in the story of two longtime friends, a folk musician and a stand up comic (Karpovsky) who hit the road together. Actress/musician Liza Oppenheimer is also set to co-star. Grace, a stand up comedian, writer, »

When TLC sent four foreign royals undercover in Atlanta in 2012 to woo women who didn't know about their titles, the resulting reality experiment, "Secret Princes," turned out to be an engaging guilty pleasure (if you believe in such things) that resembled a real-life version of the Julia Stiles early '00s classic teen movie "The Prince and Me."
Because such a fantastic concept should not be wasted, the network ordered another round of episodes, set to debut Friday (Oct. 25), featuring a new batch of noble men in a brand-new city: Austin, Texas. The four men looking for love in Season 2 include Prince Alexander of Russia, 34, a direct descendant of the House of Romanov who works as a photographer, Prince Lorenzo de Medici of Italy, 37, heir to the House of Medici, Lord James Rennell of Rodd, 34, a baron in the U.K. who works at an event planning company, and the Honourable Oliver Plunkett of Dunsany, »

His latest film is Closed Circuit, an international suspense thriller in which two ex-lovers are forced to work together on a high profile terrorism case. The impressive cast includes Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Ciarán Hinds, Julia Stiles, and Britain’s own Jim Broadbent.
The film hits UK cinemas this week, and HeyUGuys got a chance to sit down with Crowley to discuss the visual palette of the film, in addition to the differences between stage and screen directing.

Director: John Crowley.
Running Time: 96 minutes.
Synopsis: A high-profile terrorism case unexpectedly binds together two ex-lovers on the defence team, testing the limits of their loyalties and placing their lives in jeopardy.
A terrorist attack on London’s Borough Market opens this British crime drama and what follows is the story of the trial being prepared and held at the Old Bailey. When the defence lawyer mysteriously dies, Martin Rose (Eric Bana) is brought in to work on the case instead. His work is hindered, however, by the existence of game-changing classified evidence. No-one is allowed to see this evidence, as it might breach National Security, so Special Advocate Claudia (Rebecca Hall), a government approved lawyer, has to be brought in to review the evidence. She’s then allowed to fight for the evidence to become mainstream, »

As I wind up my festival and theatrical run of my film Between Us, it’s gratifying to see the amazing reviews for our four-person ensemble cast, with critics using blurb-ready adjectives like “brilliant,” “razor-sharp” and “career-best” to describe the performances of Julia Stiles, Taye Diggs and Melissa George. David Harbour, in particular, just won the Best Actor prize at the Woods Hole Film Fest, and many reviews agree that he steals the movie in his breakthrough film performance. Naturally, all credit is due to the actors themselves. But a couple people nicely said that I couldn’t have screwed up the […] »

“I just know there’s something dark in me and I hide it. I certainly don’t talk about it, but it’s there always, this…dark passenger. And when he’s driving, I feel alive, half sick with the thrill of complete wrongness.
I don’t fight him, I don’t want to. He’s all I’ve got. Nothing else could love me, not even… especially not me.
Or is that just a lie the Dark Passenger tells me? Because lately there are these moments when I feel connected to something else… someone. It’s like the mask is slipping and things… people… who never mattered before are suddenly starting to matter. It scares the hell out of me”
The dichotomy – raging battle ongoing – that engulfs the core of the protagonist summarized in one shatteringly honest, beautifully troubled confession…to an AA meeting, where he is »

Exclusive: Actor Eric Bana is making his first foray into film distribution. Before the shakeup at Focus Features last week, Bana met with and got the company’s top executives James Schamus and Andrew Karpen to agree to sell him the Australian distribution rights to Closed Circuit, the John Crowley-directed paranoid thriller that stars Bana and Rebecca Hall as defense lawyers representing a terrorist charged with blowing up London’s Borough Market.
