Olivia Wilde has signed up for Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal helmed/penned dramatic thriller, The Words, headlining Bradley Cooper.

The film will additionally star Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, J.K. Simmons, Zoe Saldana, Ben Barnes and John Hannah.

Cinematographer Antonio Calvache (IN THE BEDROOM, LITTLE CHILDREN) is the Director of Photography.

Filming will begin this month in Montreal.

Wilde's film career is growing by leaps and bounds with five of her films in post production and one currently under production.

She is currently filming for Indie thriller Blackbird.

Five of her films awaiting releases include Jon Favreau-helmed "Cowboys & Aliens"; Weinstein Co. quirky political satire "Butter"; the physical comedy, "The Change-Up," helmed by David Dobkin; Andrew Niccol's futuristic sci-fi thriller "In Time" and the DreamWorks drama "Welcome to People."
