Herek helming tale about passengers stuck at O'Hare
Exclusive: Kellan Lutz and Camilla Belle are in negotiations to star in the indie dramedy “Bumped.” Stephen Herek (“The Mighty Ducks”) is directing from Lizzy Weiss’ script, which follows five strangers whose personal lives are both revealed and changed during a long layover at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.
Titan Worldwide Entertainment principal Brad Feinstein is producing with Rumpus Entertainment’s Steve Carr (“Paul Blart: Mall Cop”) and Jason Taragan, while Titan’s Allan Triel will serve as a co-producer.
Ashok Amritraj and his Hyde Park Intl. banner will handle international sales for the project, which is expected to start production next month.
Lutz is set to reprise his role as Emmett Cullen in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” which hits theaters Nov. 18, one week after Relativity Media’s “Immortals,” in which he plays Poseidon. Lutz next stars opposite Mandy Moore in Dermont Mulroney’s directorial debut “Love, Wedding, Marriage.”
Belle, who was last seen in Lionsgate’s “From Prada to Nada,” is attached to star in Bruce Beresford’s South African soccer drama “Zebras.”
Lutz is repped by Innovative Artists and Zero Gravity Management, while WME reps Belle.
