A decade after Stuber, 46, stepped down as co-chairman of Universal Pictures — and seven years since he and partner Mary Parent went their separate ways — he remains a staple of Universal’s movie division, responsible for several of its hits (Identity Thief, Ted and Safe House) and several disappointments (Battleship and A Million Ways to Die in the West). His reputation for eclecticism can be seen in his upcoming projects — the Boston Marathon drama Patriot’s Day, starring Mark Wahlberg; CIA comedy Central Intelligence, with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart; Gary Ross’ Civil War drama The Free State of Jones; and Universal’s much-anticipated Ted 2, a follow-up to the midbudget comedy that made $549 million worldwide. Says the married father of two: "You’ve only got your gut and your beliefs. If you come from that place, then at least the journey was authentic."
