Beam yourself up, Scotty.
Simon Pegg’s upcoming film Hector and the Search for Happiness looks quite a lot like The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. That could be a good or bad thing depending on how much you liked Walter Mitty.
“Pegg plays Hector, an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: his patients are just not getting any happier! He’s going nowhere. Then one day, armed with buckets of courage and an almost child-like curiosity, Hector breaks out of his sheltered vacuum of a life into a global quest to find out if happiness exists. More importantly, if it exists for Hector. And so begins a colorful, exotic, dangerous and hysterical journey.”
The film stars Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgård and Jean Reno and is set for release in September, 2014.
