is now facing a consequence for bailing on "10 Things I Hate About You" sequel. The actress is sued for $30 million after she exited the movie project in the middle of production.

According to Los Angeles Superior Court, Evan got paid $300,000 in advance to take the lead role in "". In January 2013, the producers ran out of money and the production was halted. The production later resumed in November 2013, but she refused to resume her work.

The producer explained that he had pleaded with Evan to get back to work and even agreed to pay her more money, but she never came back for the movie production.

Responding to the lawsuit, a representative for the "" star said it's just a "bullying tactic from financially troubled producers." The rep told TMZ, "The production shut down in February 2013 when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in November 2013 by which time the producers said they would have cleared up their issues."

"However, the producers still could not get their act together, nor did they pay Evan money that was owed. Repeated subsequent promises by the producers to resume production and pay Evan also turned out to be false. Enough is enough. The producers, not Evan, have breached contract," the representative added.
