Smith to Pursue Happyness

Will Smith will star in the true-life film Pursuit of Happyness for Sony/Columbia Pictures, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the life of Chris Gardner, the movie will tell the story of a man who was homeless and jobless, living with his baby son in a bathroom at a San Francisco train station.

Despite the negative situation, Gardner continued to fight toward his goal of becoming a broker, eventually landing a job as a trainee and rising through the ranks to become a partner in a Chicago-based minority brokerage.
