Los Angeles: Actress Evan Rachel Wood's decision against working in the movie "10 Things I Hate About Life" has landed her in a soup. She has been sued for a whopping $30 million for not doing the film, reports tmz.com.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Wood is said to have been paid $300,000 in advance to play the lead in "10 Things I Hate About Life". The makers have claimed they had to shut down production in January 2013, which they say was within their right.

But when they came back to Wood to resume production in November 2013, they claim Wood refused to return to work.

The makers have said they pleaded with Wood to return to the film, and even agreed to pay her more money, but she still did not return to the production.

Wood's representative said the lawsuit is a "bullying tactic from financially troubled producers" who ran out of money during production, and could never "get their act together" to resume shooting.
