Aniston books ‘Traveling’ role

Aaron Eckhart costars in Universal film

Universal Pictures has set Jennifer Aniston to star with Aaron Eckhart in “Traveling,” a drama that marks the directing debut of Brandon Camp.

Camp wrote the script with longtime writing partner Mike Thompson.

Aniston will play a floral designer who works in a Seattle hotel where a charismatic self-help guru is conducting a weekend seminar on coping with grief. As they get to know each other, she factors heavily into the guru’s realization that he practices none of the principles he teaches.

Stuber/Parent’s Scott Stuber and Mary Parent will produce with Thompson. Shooting begins early next year.

Aniston is shooting a small role in New Line’s ensembler “She’s Just Not That Into You” and moves right into the Stephen Belber-directed “Management” with Steve Zahn. She is also booked to star in the David Frankel-directed Fox 2000 pic “Marley & Me” with Owen Wilson, but that picture has been postponed until at least spring.

Peter Berg-directed Universal drama “The Kingdom,” produced by Stuber and Parent, opens this weekend.
