Trailer Watch: Bradley Cooper Plays Tortured Writer With Secrets in 'The Words'

Thompson on Hollywood By Maggie Lange | Thompson on Hollywood May 18, 2012 at 11:49AM

A new trailer for "The Words" reveals yet another tortured writer plot (see a more whimsical take in the trailer for "Ruby Sparks"). In this version, Bradley Cooper stars as a writer who finally arrives as the next hot young American novelist. The twist is that he's living a lie, even from his wife (Zoe Saldana). He didn't write the book--he found it and loved it and submiitted it as his own. But the past bites him in the ass as he becomes a huge success. The movie within a movie stars Olivia Wilde and Dennis Quaid, who is telling the story about the young writer. "The Words" was an official 2012 Sundance Film Festival selection, where it was acquired by CBS Films, and opens in theaters September 21, 2012.
