Anna Paquin in Long Island for The Romantics

November 7, 2009 by  

Anna PaquinAnna Paquin (True Blood HBO‘s telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse) is in the North Fork area of Long Island filming her new project, the independant film The Romantics, with costars Katie Holmes, Elijah Wood, and Josh Duhamel. Filming in the area will continue into early December, so Anna will be busy right up until True Blood begins filming Season 3.

The production company, Plum Pictures, describes the film as “a zeitgeist love story and generational comedy, taking place over the course of one night at a deluxe seaside wedding” in which “seven close friends — all members of a tight, eclectic college clique — reconvene to watch two of their own tie the knot.”

Anna plays Lila, the bride-to-be, while maid of honor Laura will be played by Katie Holmes.  The film centers on a love triangle between the groom, Tom, played by Josh Duhamel, and Laura and Lia who have both been involved with and fought over him for years.  Director Galt Niederhoffer adapted the screenplay from her novel of the same name.

The Romantics is due for release in 2010.

    Doesn’t True Blood start filming beginning of Dec? Hope you can catch her, Isis! That would be a real scoop!

    • Yes, they do, but sometimes people are called back to refilm scenes… So I’m kind of hoping that happens… Otherwise, I’m hoping that Alan will film something at my college… Lots of other shows use my school ALL the time!

  • I hope they’re still filming while I’m in NY in December! It’d be cool to get to watch Anna work!
