Katie Holmes, New Romantic

Katie Holmes is usually the one being replaced – but that’s not the case this time.

The “Dark Knight” dropout has replaced Liv Tyler in the independent rom-com “The Romantics”. No idea why the lovely Ms Tyler asked for her name to rubbed from the call-sheet.

Holmes (“Batman Begins”) will also executive produce the pic, according to Variety. Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Malin Akerman, Elijah Wood, Adam Brody and Jeremy Strong are also onboard.

The Galt Niederhoffer written/directed flick revolves around eight friends from college who reunite for a wedding. Holmes, fresh off her role in Miramax’s “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” will play Laura, the maid of honor to Anna Paquin’s Lila, the bride. Laura and Lila are best friends who both have a past with the groom (Duhamel).
