Allegedly fluent French speaker Bradley Cooper is already attached to star in the story of a man who discovers that nicking another man’s work carries a higher price than he anticipated. And no, there’s no word on what that price might be, though we have yet to rule out killer robots from beyond the rim of the galaxy.
Narnia’s Prince/King Caspian Ben Barnes has also signed on to the film alongside John Hannah and the ever-awesome JK Simmons. The cast already included the likes of Jeremy Irons, Zoe Saldana and Dennis Quaid.
Wilde, who’ll be seen this year in Cowboys & Aliens, The Change-Up and (assuming it comes out over here in 2011) Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi thriller In Time, already had an in with the film’s co-writer/directors, as Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal contributed to Tron’s story. But with The Words, they saw their work land on the Black List and scored the job of bringing but to the screen. There’s no word on when they’ll start shooting just yet, but given how busy half the cast is, expect it to be later this year.
