Elizabeth Banks is negotiating for a role in Alex Kurtzman's directorial debut 'Welcome to People' alongside Chris Pine.
Elizabeth Banks is set to star in 'Welcome to People'.
The 'Uninvited' star has entered into talks to play the female lead in the project alongside Chris Pine.
The Alex Kurtzman-directed project tells the tale of a businessman (Pine) who returns to his hometown upon his estranged father's death, to find he has an alcoholic sister (Banks) and an "angry" 12-year-old nephew.
As well as directing the movie, Kurtzman will also produce alongside Robert Orci - both of whom wrote The Script with Jody Lambert.
'Welcome to People' will be Kurtzman's directorial debut and the second time he has worked with Pine - he wrote the screenplay for 2009 hit 'Star Trek'.
