CBS Films has released a featurette for Sundance closing night film "The Words," starring Bradley Cooper, Olivia Wilde, Zoë Saldana, Dennis Quaid, and Jeremy Irons. They discuss how good the script is; we'll find out just how well it translated when it releases September 7. Reviews have been mixed on Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal's directorial debut.

More promising is Cooper's upcoming "Silver Linings Playbook" (November 21), directed by David O. Russell and co-starring Jennifer Lawrence. He's got a full plate. He also stars in Susanne Bier's upcoming "Serena." It seems that Cooper is trying to keep his hangover ("The Hangover Part III" is coming next May) and have a legit indie career as well; he even tears up the villain role in actor pal Dax Sheperd's car chase caper "Hit & Run" (August 24), which debuted at Comic-Con.
