She’s barely wrapped her Australian thriller Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark but Katie Holmes has signed on for another movie, replacing Liv Tyler in the indie comedy The Romantics.

Katie will executive produce as well as star in the flick about eight friends who reunite for a wedding of two buddies as tension unfolds between the bride and maid of honor over the groom.

The star-studded lineup includes True Blood‘s Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Malin Akerman, Elijah Wood and Adam Brody.

The movie starts filming this week in New York. Katie, 30, will play Laura, the maid of honor to Anna Paquin’s Lila, who’s the bride.

Laura and Lila are best friends who both have a past with the groom played by Transformers hunk Josh.
