The gorgeous and funny actress Elizabeth Banks is looking likely to star opposite Chris Pine in the drama, Welcome To People, so says The Hollywood Reporter.

Transformers and Star Trek scribe Alex Kurtzman is making his feature directorial debut on the project, about a successful businessman who returns home after his estranged father dies and finds out he has a nephew and pisshead older sister.

Pine is about to appear in Tony Scott action thriller, Unstoppable, while Banks will pop up opposite Russell Crowe soon in The Next Three Days.
