Actress Evan Rachel Wood is being sued for $30 million by a film production company for allegedly walking out during the filming of “10 Things I Hate About Life,” but a rep calls the the suit preposterous.

Wood, along with As You Wish Productions Inc., is being sued for breach of contract; the lawsuit said she was given $300,000 for her role in the film but that she “seemingly changed her mind” and walked out of the film, MSN Entertainment reported.

Production on the film was halted in January 2013 after Wood left, MSN said, and when it restarted the next month, the legal documents filed in the suit said Wood told the company she couldn’t continue for personal reasons.

Wood’s rep told Deadline the suit was “bullying tactic by financially troubled producers.”

“The production shut down in February 2013 when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in Nov. 2013 by which time the producers said they would have cleared up their issues,” Wood’s rep continued. “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.”

Deadline said the romantic comedy about two people who meet when they’re attempting to kill themselves was to be produced by Andrew Lazar with Junger and Intandem Films CEO Gary Smith.

Wood currently is set to play in a true-crime movie, “Facing the Wind,” based on the best-selling novel by Julie Salamon. The movie is about convicted murderer Bob Rowe.
