Aaron Eckhart is set to star in Universal Pictures and Stuber/Parent’s new drama “Traveling” reports Variety.
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 project marks the directorial debut of Brandon Camp who co-wrote the script with longtime writing partner Mike Thompson. The pair’s previous efforts include “Dragonfly,” and “Steinbeck’s Point of View.” Shooting begins early next year.
