Currently in theaters (and not getting much box office love), PEOPLE LIKE US is an immensely likeable family drama inspired by actual events in the life of ALEX KURTZMAN (who co-wrote the script with longtime collaborator ROBERTO ORCI and JODY LAMBERT) and centers on the relationship between a young man who discovers his late father had a secret family and the single mom he realizes is his sister. KURTZMAN makes his directorial debut on the feature and has lined up a first-rate cast that includes CHRIS PINE, ELIZABETH BANKS, MICHELLE PFEIFFER and MICHAEL HALL D’ADDARIO.
Probably best known for stepping into the iconic Capt. Kirk role (originally made famous by WILLIAM SHATNER) in J.J. ABRAMS’ recent STAR TREK reboot, CHRIS PINE has spent the past few years making a name for himself on stage. Here in Los Angeles, he turned in critically acclaimed performances in THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE and FARRAGUT NORTH. We sat down with him recently and he admitted working in live theater will always be a part of his life. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
