Itís clear every news story this week will feature Bradley Cooper in some way. Just grin and bear it, guys.
Besides, this one is actually about Olivia Wilde, and how she decided to add another notch on her Handsome Costar Belt. According to a press release from Benaroya Pictures, Wilde Zoe Saldana, Ben Barnes, John Hannah, J.K. Simmons, and Nora Arnezeder have joined Cooper, Jeremy Irons and Dennis Quaid in the indie thriller, The Words.
The plot description is a little thin. It centers on an author (Cooper) who ďat the peak of his literary success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another manís work.Ē It feels a bit Limitlessesque, doesnít it? It immediately makes me think it will rely heavily on his tried-and-true smug persona, but I suppose that really depends on whether this character consciously plagiarized or not. Maybe this is Secret Window territory. Iím also curious why such a character-centric story boasts such a large cast. The press release doesnít give any indication as to who Wilde and Company will be playing, but I think Love Interest is probably her enviable role. (So enviableÖ)
The Words will be the directorial debut of Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal of Tron: Legacy (letís not hold it against them for now), and starts shooting this month in Montreal.
