Liv Tyler will star in the movie adaptation of Galt Niederhoffer’s novel The Romantics, which EW dubbed “Droll and sophisticated… a winning screwball comedy.” It revolves around college friends who reunite for a seaside wedding. Variety reports Tyler will play Laura, the maid of honor, who begins to wonder what she has in common with her pals — and if her relationship with the groom is really past tense. Niederhoffer will write and direct the independent film.
