Announced about a month ago... a film called The Words, which Zoe Saldana co-stars in alongside Bradley Cooper.
In the upcoming movie, currently in production, which was a Blacklist title (the annual list of Hollywood's hottest un-produced screenplays), and was previously work-shopped at the Sundance Screenwriters' Labs, the story follows a writer (Cooper) who, while at the peak of success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another man's work.
Kind of vague, but that's all we got so far. I do know that it's a thriller, although, for some reason, I initially figured it was a comedy. Nope. It's full of drama and thrills.
At the time of my last post on this, no word on what role Zoe Saldana would play in the film. But maybe the pictures within this post (above and below) are a hint :)
The film is being directed by Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, in their directorial debut; they last penned the script for Tron: Legacy.
Jeremy Irons, Olivia Wilde and Dennis Quaid also co-star.
The project was shopped at the Cannes Film Festival last month, and it looks like they might have raised the necessary funds. Unless Cooper and Zoe really are together in real life, and these are just paparazzi shots of them strolling about town. In other words, no, they're not.
No release date scheduled yet.
