Eckhart, Universal go ‘Traveling’

Stuber, Parent to produce Camp's drama

Stuber/Parent’s Scott Stuber and Mary Parent will produce Universal Pictures drama “Traveling.”

Aaron Eckhart is set to star in the pic, which will mark the directing debut of Brandon Camp. Camp wrote the script with longtime writing partner Mike Thompson, who will also produce.

Shooting begins early next year.

Eckhart will play a widower whose book about grieving turns him into a phenomenon. Reinvented as a charismatic self-help guru, he falls for a woman at a seminar and is forced to confront the fact that he hasn’t come to grips with his own loss.

The writers, who recently sold a thriller pitch they’ll write for Stuber-Parent and U, are best known for penning “Dragonfly” and “Steinbeck’s Point of View,” both of which dealt with themes of loss and mortality. The team is repped by ICM.

CAA-repped Eckhart, who’ll next be seen starring alongside Catherine-Zeta Jones in the Scott Hicks-directed Warner Bros. comedy “No Reservations,” recently wrapped the Alan Ball-directed “Nothing Is Private” and isplaying the villainous Two-Face in the Christopher Nolan-directed “The Dark Knight.”

Stuber and Parent are in post-production on Peter Berg-directed drama “The Kingdom,” which Universal opens Sept. 29, and just wrapped Malcolm Lee’s Martin Lawrence comedy “The Better Man.” They’re prepping “The Wolfman” for a December start in London, with Mark Romanek to direct, as well as the comedy “Big Brothers,” with Luke Greenfield helming.
