Elizabeth Banks

Over the past couple months we've heard about writer/producer Alex Kurtzman's directorial debut with Welcome to the People The drama will see Chris Pine as a struggling man in his 20's who, after flying home to LA for the funeral of his estranged record producer father, discovers that the will stipulates he must deliver $150,000 in cash to a 30 year old alcoholic sister he never knew existed and her troubled 12 year old son. Now Risky Biz reports Elizabeth Banks has snagged the female lead as the alcoholic sister. Kurtzman wrote the screenplay with his writing partner Robert Orci and Jody Lambert about six years ago. Read on!

As for Banks joining the project, few actresses with such versatility can be found working today. From her work in comedies like Zack and Miri Make Porno and The 40-Year Old Virgin to impressive dramatic roles in W. and Seabiscuit, she's truly one of the great actresses currently working. If I had my bet, it won't be long before she gets a huge Academy Award worthy role, but until then she's signed on to plenty of future projects including My Idiot Brother with Paul Rudd as well as the big screen version of the fame Disney fairy in Tink. Do you love Elizabeth Banks, too?
