I know what you’re thinking, and yes, “sexy plagiarism film” is an oxymoron of sorts. Moving on.
/Film reports that The Words will contain a dangerous amount of sexy for a film about “a successful writer who discovers he has to pay a price for stealing another man’s work”. Thus far, the likes of Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, J.K. Simmons, Dennis Quaid and Jeremy Irons will star in the directorial debut of Tron Legacy screenwriters Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal. Jeremy Irons will play the writer who has been wronged and Cooper the writer that does the wronging (is that a word?), with Saldana and Quaid playing other writers and the rest of the roles yet to be determined.
Other than the sexy bastards at Flixist, my experiences have told me that more often than not writers are hideous goblins who supplement their non-sexiness by becoming a writer. Yet in this fictional world of The Words, writers are chiseled gods/goddesses with perfect bodies and piercing eyes. I mean, that J.K. Simmons is a sexual dynamo! How am I supposed to believe that adonis of a man would associate himself with the lowlife world of literary writers?[via /Film]
