Peter Chelsom will direct and adapted François Lelord’s bestseller with Tinker Lindsay.

Production is expected to get underway once Pegg has wrapped filming on The World’s End.

“I’ve been searching long and hard for a film that would bring me back to my European sensibilities,” Chelsom said. 

“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.”
