While the buzz surrounding their work on the recent Disney franchise reboot, TRON: LEGACY, was not all that well received, the duo of Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal have found yet another big name to join their upcoming directorial debut, THE WORDS.

Variety reports that Bradley Cooper has joined the upcoming film, and might be joined by Jeremy Irons, who is currently in talks to co-star in the film.

THE WORDS will follow a writer who must  deal with the price that he must pay after stealing a fellow writer’s work. The screenplay for the film found its way onto the Black List, which might be why the film has apparently found quite a bit of buzz as of late.

Personally, while I’m not all that crazy about the film’s premise (films about writers don’t often succeed), there are exceptions to that rule, and this one has all the makings of being just that. I love the cast here, and the fact that the script was found on the Black List really does bode well for the picture.
