Simon Pegg embarks on Search for Happiness

Simon Pegg is attached to Peter Chelsom‘s adaptation of Francois Lelord’s novel Hector and the Search for Happiness.

According to Deadline, Chelsom and Tinker Lindsay have translated Lelord’s work for the screen.

It tells of London psychiatrist who embarks on an ambitious worldwide mission to figure out why his patients remain miserable.

Chelsom said this of the project via press release:

“I’ve been searching long and hard for a film that would bring me back to my European sensibilities. Not unlike Being There and Forrest Gump, Hector is a contemporary love story, a fable wrapped around a very human hero’s journey. Nobody does the innocent abroad better than Simon Pegg: he is not only a brilliant comedian but a very touching actor. He is the Hector that you want to follow to the ends of the earth.”

Discuss: Is Pegg the right man to make people happy?
