Ohhh, the words, how they pain me! Waterfall Media & Benaroya Pictures have released a first look photo from the indie drama The Words, starring Bradley Cooper as a writer who, at the peak of his literary success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another man's work. The photo features Cooper in the embrace of Zoe Saldana as Dora, not shining much light on the story, but at least the characters. The cast includes Olivia Wilde, Dennis Quaid, Ben Barnes and Jeremy Irons as the man whose work is stolen, but none of them have been seen in this. Take a look at the first photo in full (click for high res) and more below.
There's not too much more known about the plot of The Words, but here's another take from IMDb, who calls it a dramatic thriller: When an aspiring writer claims another man's long lost work as his own, the price he must pay is more than he could have ever imagined. The film was written & directed by both Lee Sternthal & Brian Klugman, both credited for the story on Tron Legacy, and Klugman also a bit actor on various TV shows and in Cloverfield. The info with the photo said that it's still looking for distribution, with US rights placement represented by Waterfall Media/Untitled Ent. We'll be sure to keep an eye out for this.
Sounds like Stephen King/David Koepp's "Secret Window", but hopefully it's not based on the same concept.

Bradley Cooper is a D bag.

Did he sleep with your Mom or something? Why do you hold personal angst against Mr. Cooper?

They could go several different ways with this story. Will be interesting to see this movie.
