    From Yahoo! News-


    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Alias" star Jennifer Garner (news) will replace Gwyneth Paltrow (news) in the indie feature "Happy Endings," which is set to shoot this summer in Los Angeles.


    Lisa Kudrow (news) continues to be attached to the $10 million film, written and to be directed by Don Roos, who previously collaborated with her in "The Opposite of Sex."


    Sources said Paltrow's departure stems from her feeling the need to take time off to grieve the loss of her father, Bruce Paltrow (news), who died in October while she was in production on "Ted and Sylvia." The actress is currently in production on "The World of Tomorrow."


    "Happy Endings" is described as a contemporary comedy set in Los Angeles involving three intertwining stories with 10 characters. The first story is about a father and son who are involved with the same woman (Garner). The second focuses on two couples in which one of the men may have fathered the other couple's child. The third is about a woman (Kudrow) who gave up a baby for adoption 19 years ago and meets a blackmailing documentary filmmaker who might know where the child is. Meanwhile, her boyfriend, a masseur, may be giving out "happy endings" at the massage parlor.


    Garner is in production on Revolution Studios' "13 Going on 30." She most recently starred on the big screen in "Daredevil."

    She probably wouldn't have time to shoot the second movie if it were a huge star vehicle.

    I'm just glad that she's still interested in doing smaller independent films, because that shows she cares about quality more than money. Yes, I love big action blockbusters and romantic comedies as much as anybody, but independent films can be really original and amazing. And I'm thinking since Lisa Kudrow's involved in this, it'll be good. Has anyone seen "The Opposite of Sex"? It was hilarious!

    The only problem is, it probably won't be released in many venues. So unless you live in New York or LA, you might not get to see it until it's released on DVD. (I know I won't.)
