Chris Pine frontrunner for Welcome to People
Posted by: Nathan Swank
I think it’s safe to say that the success of last years STAR TREK propelled actor Chris Pine in to mainstream stardom. He has the comedy THIS MEANS WAR and the thriller UNSTOPPABLE on the horizon. Now the new Captain Kirk is currently in talks to star in DreamWorks WELCOME TO PEOPLE. Alex Kurtzman will direct for the first time from his own screenplay with Robert Orci and Jody Lambert. Kurtzmam has a previous connection with Pine, having been a co-screenwriter on STAR TREK and TRANSFORMERS.
WELCOME TO PEOPLE is about a man who loses his father and must deliver $150,000 in cash to an alcoholic sister and her angry 12-year-old son, both of whom he did not know existed. I can’t help but feel this drama is missing some gaps in its synopsis but it’s too soon to judge.
