It’s funny; given the premise of “The Words”, I thought this would be a thriller along the lines of, say, a Stephen King novel. But turns out, it’s mostly a drama/romantic movie sans anything really dangerous going on. Go figure. Anyways, put down your books and take a gander at the first trailer for Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal’s “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 Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Ben Barnes, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, John Hannah, J.K. Simmons, Michael McKean, Zeljko Ivanek, Ron Rifkin, Liz Stauber, Gianpaolo Venuta, and Nora Arnezeder.
