Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal must be doing something right, because they’ve got a hell of a cast for their directorial debut, “The Words”, a film that they also wrote. The movie looks fine, but I get the bad feeling its “you stole my story!” angle isn’t all that important. I mean, not important in the sense that Jeremy Irons will come after Bradley Cooper with a screwdriver or anything, important. I get the feeling this is all drama stuff, which would be disappointing since the trailers seem to be selling a mystery/thriller of sorts. That’s just the sense I get, anyway. Take a look at the latest trailer for “The Words”.
Young writer Rory Jansen finally achieves long sought after literary success after publishing the next great American novel. There’s only one catch – he didn’t write it. As the past comes back to haunt him and his literary star continues to rise, Jansen is forced to confront the steep price that must be paid for stealing another man’s work, and for placing ambition and success above life’s most fundamental three words.
Starring Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes, and J.K. Simmons, among man others.
Hear the words September 7, 2012.
