Michelle Pfeiffer Joins Chris Pine in WELCOME TO PEOPLE
New cast members just keep coming into WELCOME TO PEOPLE. The picture, which marks the feature film directing debut of writer Alex Kurtzman, is the story of a businessman (Chris Pine) that returns to his hometown after his father (whom he hasn’t
talked to in years) dies. Upon his return he discovers that he has an alcoholic sister with a 12 year old son.
Michelle Pfeiffer will join the cast as Pine’s mother. Her casting news comes fast on the heels of Olivia Wilde who was recently confirmed to play Pine’s girlfriend.
Elizabeth Banks will also star as Pine’s sister.
In addition to the director and co-writer credits, Kurtzman will also produce with Roberto Ocri (another co-writer), and Bobby Cohen. Jody Lambert completes the trio of writers for People.
The film is set to begin shooting in Los Angeles next week.
