Simon Pegg will be starring in Hector and the Search for Happiness based on the best-selling novel by François Lelord. The Hollywood reporter writes that Hector, which has been adapted for the screen by Chelsom and Tinker Lindsay, is about ” an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis — largely because his patients are just not getting any happier — who decides to go on his own quest to find a smile”.

The film is currently in pre-production and will begin filming as soon as he completes filming the third film in the Cornetto trilogy, The World’s End, with Edgar Wright and Nick Frost.
