With most screenwriters, you normally either mostly enjoy their work or mostly dislike it. With Alex Kurtzman, you probably both love and hate his work with equal amounts of blind passion because he and co-writer Bob Orci wrote almost every single movie that was released in 2009.

Hyperbole aside, it looks like Kurtzman has put down the pen in order to pick it back up again while sitting in the director’s chair (because directors use pens, too) for the Dreamworks project Welcome to People - another sign that his relationship with Steven Spielberg is getting stronger. Especially in the face of their collaboration on Cowboys and Aliens.

The plot is about a man who is prompted to reach out to an alcoholic sister he never knew about by his late father’s will and a large sum of money. It sounds like gut-wrenching indie fare, but could be wrapped in a large Dreamworks budget.
