New ‘The Words’ Trailer: Bradley Cooper is No Longer Limitless

The Words 2012 Movie

In Limitless, Bradley Cooper played a struggling writer dealing with a creative block with a deadline staring him down from all angles. His special lady friend was searching for a last straw, and things were looking down until he cheated his way to literary success by taking a pill that made him super smart.

In The Words, Bradley Cooper plays a struggling aspiring writer dealing with a creative block and stacked bills staring him down from all angles. His wife (Zoe Saldana) is searching for a last straw, and things are looking down until she buys him an old satchel, and he cheats his way to literary success by taking someone else’s old manuscript and claiming it’s his own work.

There are obviously, most likely, a ton of differences between the two thrillers, but it’s funny to see Cooper digging into the failed writer mode again – especially since production on The Words started three months after the release of Limitless. Joking aside, it’s got a great cast with Olivia Wilde, J.K. Simmons and Jeremy Irons alongside those already mentioned, and if nothing else, Irons looks like a major reason to check this out.

The man is menacing, and so is this trailer:

The Words hits theaters September 7th.
