Posted on

Star Trek‘s Chris Pine is in “preliminary discussions” to star in the upcoming family drama Welcome to People, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Alex Kurtzman, who wrote the screenplay with Roberto Orci and Jody Lambert, is set to direct.

Welcome to People is about a man who, per his recently deceased father’s will, has to bring $150,000 to an alcoholic sister he didn’t know he had. He then involves himself in her life and the life of her “angry 12-year-old son,” without letting on about their family connection.
