LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hayley Atwell of "Captain America: The First Avenger" will be starring in a new film with a somewhat familiar title.

Intandem Films said Wednesday that Atwell has been cast in "10 Things I Hate About Life," a romantic comedy to be written and directed by Gil Junger.

Junger directed the hit 1999 movie "10 Things I Hate About You," which starred Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Intandem will produce "10 Things I Hate About Life" with Mad Chance Productions, according to literary and talent agency APA.

The 30-year-old, London-born Atwell was a 2010 Laurence Olivier Awards nominee for the play "A View From the Bridge." Her other film credits include "The Duchess" and "Brideshead Revisited."
