A possible new film project for Jeremy Irons – The Words

from Variety.com

Bradley Cooper has signed on to star in drama “The Words,” which Lisa Wilson’s Parlay Films, an affiliate of GK Films, is pre-selling at Berlin’s European Film Market.

Jeremy Irons is in talks to co-star in the pic, which is the directorial debut of “Tron Legacy” scribes Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal.

Irons is scheduled to attend the Berlin Film Festival for the international preem of his “Margin Call,” which is screening in competition.

“The Words” reunites “Margin Call’s” Michael Benaroya (of Benaroya Pictures) and Untitled Entertainment’s Laura Rister and Cassian Elwes.

Benaroya, Animus Films’ Jim Young and Serena Films’ Tatiana Kelly will produce while Rister and Elwes are exec producing the pic.

Filmula’s Johnny Lin is in negotiations to co-finance and produce “The Words” with Benaroya.

Klugman and Sternthal’s script was workshopped at the Sundance Screenwriters’ Lab and appeared on the Black List, the annual list of Hollywood’s unproduced screenplays.

Story follows a writer who, at the peak of his literary success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another man’s work.

Parlay Films will handle international sales while domestic rights will be handled by Waterfall Media/Untitled.

Cooper and Irons are repped by CAA.
