Tyler Loves the 'Hulk'


Will Hulk smash Liv Tyler's heart?

Tyler is in place to star opposite Edward Norton's Bruce Banner in Marvel's upcoming reboot of "The Incredible Hulk" franchise.

In Ang Lee's 2003 film, the Betty Ross was played by Jennifer Connelly, while Eric Bana played Banner.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new "Hulk" project begins with scientist Bruce Banner/The Hulk on the run from various authorities and estranged from fellow researcher Ross. Naturally, circumstances bring the characters back together.

Louis Leterrier ("Unleashed") will direct the not-exactly-sequel, which will begin production this summer in Toronto.

Universal has already set a June 13, 2008 release date for the film.

Tyler was most recently seen (by one or two people) in the dramas "Lonesome Jim" and "Reign Over Me." Most familiar as the animal cracker loving gal from "Armageddon" (or maybe from those "Lord of the Rings" movies), Tyler has "The Strangers" set for release this summer.
