Chris Pine is in talks to re-team with Star Trek co-writer, Alex Kurtzman, in Kurtzman’s directorial debut, Welcome To People, says THR. The film 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 and partner, Roberto Orci, wrote the script with relative newcomer, Joy Lambert. Kurtzman and Orci will be producing as well.
Pine will next be seen in Unstoppable in November with Denzel Washington and is currently filming McG’s This Means War. He also has Roland Joffe’s Singularity upcoming and will be appearing in George Clooney’s next directorial effort, Farragut North, with Clooney, Evan Rachel Wood, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti and Marisa Tomei in 2011. That film is based on the book by Beau Willmon (who also write the script) and concerns a crash course in dirty politics for a new staffer on a presidential candidate’s campaign trail.
