THR reports that Chris Pine
is looking to reunite with his Star Trek
screenwriter Alex Kurtzman
for the prolific writers directorial debut, a family drama titled Welcome To People
The story follows a man who must deliver $150,000 in cash to an alcoholic sister he didn't know he had after the death of their father. Without telling her who he is, the guy also gets involved in the life of her angry 12-year-old son.
Kurtzman wrote the screenplay years ago with his partner Roberto Orci
and Jody Lambert
. The pari are producing through their Kurtzman Orci Paper Products. Pine has yet to commit to the gig as he's juggling numerous projects around at the moment, including This Means War
(which is shooting now) a Star Trek
sequel and the new Jack Ryan film which he'll star in.
