Pic marks the directorial debut of Alex Kurtzman, who penned the script with writing/producing partner Roberto Orci and Jody Lambert. He’s set to start shooting this month.

Welcome to People” tells the story of a young businessman (Pine) who returns home after his estranged father’s death only to discover a surprising family secret — that he has an older sister (Banks) he never knew about and a young nephew.

Wilde will portray the girlfriend of Pine’s character. She’s in “Tron: Legacy” and will be seen next in DreamWorks’ “Cowboys and Aliens” in July.

Kurtzman and Orci are producing via their DreamWorks-based Paper Products shingle with Bobby Cohen.
