The film is an adaptation of Sally Thorne's best-selling novel of the same name.
The rom-com will feature Hale as Lucy Hutton, a vintage-dress-obsessed young woman who cannot stand her colleague, the hyper-efficient Josh Templeton (played by Amell). While the two constantly engage in a battle of wills, things take a U-turn when Lucy finds herself unexpectedly attracted to the man she never thought she would like, Deadline reports.
'The Hating Game' was Thorne's debut novel which came out in 2016. Her second novel, '99 Percent Mine', was published earlier this year.
The film is being scripted by 'Peace, Love & Misunderstanding' writer Christina Mengert, with throne's inputs.
