On May 9, 2012 it was announced that Gil Junger would direct the film from his own script, with Intandem Films and Mad Chance Productions producing the film; Andrew Lazar, who produced the original 10 Things I Hate About You in 1999, would re-assume that role for this film. Vision Films acquired the distribution rights to the film.
On May 9, 2012 Hayley Atwell was added to the cast of the film to star as lead. On November 14, 2012 Evan Rachel Wood joined the film to play the lead role. On November 30, 2012 Élodie Yung joined to star along with Wood. On January 14, 2013 Billy Campbell also joined the cast of the film.
The shooting was set to start in November 2012 in Los Angeles. However, shooting actually commenced a month later, on December 17, 2012, in LA. On January 14, 2013, THR reported shooting as still being underway in LA.
However, in late February 2013, it was announced that the film's producer, Gary Smith, was stepping down from his position as CEO of Intandem Films and that filming for 10 Things I Hate About Life was to be put on hold. The company said that this was not because of Smith's departure but rather due to Evan Rachel Wood's pregnancy, and that filming would resume that September or some time in the second half of the year.
After several months of no shooting reports or announcements, on November 7, 2013, it was announced that filming would re-commence after a several-month break on December 11 in and around Los Angeles and Malibu and that it would be wrapped up by April 2014. Vision Films released some photos from the film on November 11, 2013.
In June 2014, Variety reported that Wood was being sued for $30 million by the producers for allegedly refusing to continue working on the film. Wood's lawyers dismissed the suit as "preposterous" and stated that Wood stopped working on the production after producers failed to pay her.
