A new trailer for the drama The Words has been released.  For those unfamiliar with the film, it’s three stories nested inside each other with the central story focusing on an aspiring writer (Bradley Cooper) who plagiarizes a manuscript he finds in an old briefcase.  He becomes an overnight success when the book is published, but then he encounters the manuscript’s true author (Jeremy Irons).  This trailer plays like a truncated version of the first trailer, with a few bits of new footage thrown in towards the end.  The premise has the basis for a great story, and I really like what we’ve seen so far.  Matt caught the pic at Sundance and was a big fan (read his review here), so here’s hoping it delivers.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  Written and directed by Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, the film also stars Dennis Quaid, Ben Barnes, Olivia Wilde, and Zoe SaldanaThe Words opens on September 7th.

Here’s the synopsis for The Words:

Starring Bradley Cooper, Oscar®-winner Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Zoë Saldana, the layered romantic drama The Words follows young writer Rory Jansen who finally achieves long sought after literary success after publishing the next great American novel. There’s only one catch – he didn’t write it.  As the past comes back to haunt him and his literary star continues to rise, Jansen is forced to confront the steep price that must be paid for stealing another man’s work, and for placing ambition and success above life’s most fundamental three words.
