Will Smith Movie Seeks 'Pursuit Of Happyness'[Thursday, January 27th, 2005]
The Will Smith starrer 'untitled Chris Gardner project' has acquired a title, Pursuit of Happyness, says the Hollywood Reporter.
The story is based on the real life rags-to-riches story of a Chicago businessman which was aired on ABC's 20/20 in January.
It is a real-life tale of survival over life's toughest challenges. After a chain of circumstances left Gardner jobless and homeless at age 30, he found himself and his baby son living 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 at such companies as Dean Witter and Bear Stearns to his current standing -- partner and owner of the Chicago-based minority brokerage firm Gardner Rich & Co. and self-made millionaire.
