Hayley Atwell has been cast in the follow-up 10 Things I Hate About Life, Variety reports.
It will be written and directed by Gil Junger, who directed the first film.
Junger told the publication that the inspiration for the new film was the suicide of a man at a scenic overlook.
"It is the story of two relatable, ordinary people with normal jobs and normal desires whose seemingly great lives have become unmanageable," he said.
"Two people who go to the same place at the same time to end it. … Their chance meeting is so awkward, so raw, and so funny, they postpone their intentions and go their separate ways."
The film will be produced by Intandem Films and Mad Chance, the latter of which produced the original.
10 Things I Hate About You starred Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and was loosely based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew.
