Liv Tyler gets ‘Romantics’

Actress to star in indie romantic comedy

Liv Tyler is set to star in “The Romantics,” an independently financed romantic comedy written and to be directed by Galt Niederhoffer.

Team Todd’s Suzanne and Jennifer Todd will produce with Plum Pictures. Production begins in the summer.

Niederhoffer adapted her own novel. Story takes place on the eve of a seaside wedding celebration. Seven close friends convene to watch two of their pals get married. Laura (Tyler) is the maid of honor, but she and the bride have had a long rivalry over the groom.

Tyler last starred in “The Strangers” and “The Incredible Hulk.” She’ll next be seen in “Smother.”

The Todds are also developing with Niederhoffer an adaptation of her debut novel, “Taxonomy of Barnacles.” Niederhoffer is a founding partner of Plum Pictures along with Celine Rattray and Daniela Taplin Lundberg. Plum is in post-production on “Labor Pains,” and “After.Life.”
