We’re excited to report that principal photography has begun on Peter Chelsom’s comedy Hector And The Search For Happiness and they’ve added more great names to the line-up.

The previously announced stellar cast surrounding Simon Pegg as the eponymous hero, which includes Academy Award winner Christopher PlummerRosamund Pike (An Education) and Stellan Skarsgård (Thor), has now been joined by Toni Collette  as Hector’s ex-girlfriend Agnes, and Jean Reno as drug baron Diego. Veronica Ferres (Klimt) also joins the ensemble as clairvoyant Anjali.

Simon Pegg plays Hector, an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: he’s going nowhere and his patients are just not getting any happier! Until one day, armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, Hector breaks out of his sheltered vacuum of a life into a global quest to find out if happiness exists: and more importantly, if it exists for Hector. »
