The indie film ‘The Romatics’ has been able to line up a surprisingly stellar cast of notable actors. Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Malin Akerman, Elijah Wood, Adam Brody and Jeremy Strong were already on board the new comedy, but now Variety reports that Katie Holmes has become a last minute replacement as the lead of the movie. Holmes will step in for Liv Tyler who has left the production for undisclosed reasons
The indie centers on eight college friends who reunite for a wedding with Holmes as the maid of honor to Paquin’s bride. A romantic triangle figures in the storyline as both ladies have slept with the groom (Duhamel) in a project that appears to have the trappings of a modern day farce.
‘The Romatics’ will be directed by Galt Niederhoffer who adapted her own screenplay for the novel. The shooting which had originally been scheduled to lense in the summer, begins shooting this week in New York.
