After working with Roberto Orci as writers and producers of big budget sci-fi films like Transformers, Cowboys & Aliens and J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, you would think Alez Kurtzman would venture into the director's seat with a blockbuster. But instead he's taking on a character based drama with People Like Us starring new drama starring Chris Pine, Olivia Wilde, Elizabeth Banks and Michelle Pfeiffer. We've already seen a trailer for the film that doesn't look like it's amazing, but could be a charming little drama, and now a new sizzle reel (which is also like a featurette) has surfaced to give us more insight into the film.
Here's the sizzle reel for Alex Kurtzman's People Like Us sent to us from DreamWorks:
Sam is tasked with delivering $150,000 of his deceased father's fortune to the sister who he has never met.
People Like Us, originally titled Welcome to People, is the directorial debut of screenwriter/producer Alex Kurtzman, known as one half of Kurtzman/Orci, the writers behind M:I:III, Michael Bay's Transformers 1 & 2, Star Trek 1 & 2 and Cowboys & Aliens. The screenplay was written by Kurtzman, Jody Lambert, and Roberto Orci, his writing colleague. Produced by DreamWorks Pictures, released by Disney/DreamWorks, People Like Us arrives in theaters everywhere this summer starting June 29th. Look like it's worth seeing?
