"Very excited that dennis quaid is joining our bradley cooper movie 'the words'. Jeremy irons and zoey saldana are in." Those words were tweeted by indie film producer Cassian Elwes

The project he refers to, titled The Words, is a Blacklist title (the annual list of Hollywood's hottest un-produced screenplays), and was previously workshopped at the Sundance Screenwriters' Labs.

The story follows a writer who, while at the peak of success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another man's work.


As Elwes notes in his Tweet, Zoe Saldana has joined a cast that also includes Bradley Cooper (who will star as the writer), Jeremy Irons, and Dennis Quaid.

No word yet on what role Zoe will perform in the film, which will be directed by Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, in their directorial debut; they last penned the script for Tron: Legacy.

As The Playlist notes, the [project is currently being shopped to buyers at Cannes; though, with this cast, I'd anticipate finding the money wouldn't be a problem.
