Hayley Atwell has landed a role in new film 10 Things I Hate About Life.

Intandem Films said the London-born Captain America star has been cast in the romantic comedy, to be written and directed by Gil Junger.

Junger directed the hit 1999 movie 10 Things I Hate About You, which starred the late Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Intandem will produce the film with Mad Chance Productions.

Hayley, 30, 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.
