Olivia Wilde is just one of a host of actors that's signed on for Bradley Cooper's second film in which he plays a writer who takes a shortcut to success.

Wilde, Zoe Saldana, J.K. Simmons, Ben Barnes, John Hannah and Nora Arnezeder have signed on for "The Words," which will star Cooper as a writer who plagiarizes another. The film also stars Jeremy Irons and Dennis Quaid.

Cooper, of course, earlier this year starred in "Limitless" in which he played a writer who achieves literary success with the aid of a powerful drug that allows him to tap into his mind's full potential.

"The Words" will mark the directorial debut of co-writers Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, whose script about a man who eventually pays the price for stealing another man's work has appeared on the Black List of best unproduced scripts in Hollywood.

Klugman and Sternthal previously worked with Wilde on "Tron: Legacy," let's hope this script marks a significant improvement over that mess.
