Katie Holmes replaces Liv Tyler in THE ROMANTICS
Katie Holmes is set to replace Liv Tyler in THE ROMANTICS. She will also executive produce the film, which will be her first venture into that side of filmmaking. The film is set to start shooting relatively quickly, kicking off this week in New York.
THE ROMANTICS is an independent comedy with a star-packed cast, including Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Malin Akerman, Elijah Wood, Adam Brody, and Jeremy Strong. THE ROMANTICS follows a group of eight college friends who come back together for the wedding of two of their own. Holmes’ role is as Laura, the maid of honor in the wedding. Anna Paquin plays her best friend, the bride, Lila, and Josh Duhamel is the groom. Holmes and Paquin’s characters both “have a past” with Duhamel’s character. Sounds love triangle-tastic.
The film is based on the novel of the same name by Galt Niederhoffer, who also adapted the screenplay and will direct the film.
