Green light for Tyler as "Hulk" flame
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Liv Tyler will star opposite Edward Norton in "The Incredible Hulk," signing on to play Betty Ross, the longtime love interest of Dr. Bruce Banner/the Hulk.
Louis Leterrier is directing the Marvel Studios movie, which is slated to begin in the summer in Toronto. Universal Pictures is distributing.
Ross, a classic "Hulk" character from the comic book's beginning in 1962, is Banner's fellow scientist and an ally in his quest to rid him of his lurking monster deep inside. The movie will unfold with Ross estranged from Banner (Norton), but with the pursuit of the Hulk heating up and Banner on the run trying to cure his condition, Ross finds herself swept back into his life.
Jennifer Connelly played the character in the 2003 movie "Hulk," directed by Ang Lee.
Tyler was most recently seen in Mike Binder's "Reign Over Me," with Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle. Her upcoming films include the indie comedy "Smother" and the horror thriller "The Strangers."
