CBS Films have released a second, brief trailer for Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal‘s The Words, a drama about the perils of plagiarism. The picture, sees Bradley Cooper play a struggling writer who, upon discovering a lost manuscript, deems it his own and learns… again, the perils of plagiarism.

Our own (positive) review called it a puzzle, and that’s the impression I sort of got that time out; this new look, however, sells a straighter drama that even veers into thriller territory. I like the conceit at play here, simple or multi-tiered, though some mixed reactions out of Sundance have me keeping any expectations in check.

Also starring Zoe Saldana, Jeremy Irons, Olivia Wilde, and Dennis Quaid, The Words will open on September 21st.
