New Looks At Bradley Cooper & Olivia Wilde In 'The Words' & First Images Of Ari Graynor In 'For A Good Time, Call...'

The Playlist By Ryan Sartor | The Playlist December 6, 2011 at 9:37AM

After Bradley Cooper’s “Limitless” was a surprise box office hit this spring, he's lined up a string of projects including David O. Russell’s “The Silver Linings Playbook,” Derek Cianfrance’s “The Place Beyond the Pines,” and “The Words,” which is premiering at Sundance. The early pics look very intriguing, featuring a gaunt, barely recognizable Jeremy Irons. The cast also includes Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes, Nora Arnezeder and Dennis Quaid. "The Words" is the festival’s closing night film, which could definitely be viewed as a vote of confidence. The Black List script follows a writer (Cooper) who, at the peak of his literary success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another man’s work. With a pretty crack cast and decent concept, this one sounds promising.

With a pretty crack cast and decent concept, this one sounds promising.

Meanwhile, there are always a few potential breakout comedies at Sundance. Some deliver completely (“Little Miss Sunshine”), partially (“Our Idiot Brother”), or not at all (“Happy, Texas”). Seth Rogen’s wife, Lauren Miller, has co-written and co-stars in one such aspiring picture, the raunchy comedy “For a Good Time, Call…Ari Graynor ("Whip It!," "The Sitter") is the other lead and together she and Miller play women short on cash and prospects who start a phone sex line. Short film and commercial filmmaker Jamie Travis is making his feature film debut with the project, which will apparently include a handful of cameos, so keep your eyes peeled.
