If the new movie "The Words," a story within a story (and maybe within another story), sounds a little confusing, don't fear! The stars of the latest literary nail-biter are here to set the record straight.

Directed by first-timers Brian Klugman, Lee Sternthal, "The Words" follows a down-on-his-luck writer (Bradley Cooper) who finds literary success by stealing another man's (Jeremy Irons) long-lost story.

The film is presented in "Cloud Atlas"-esque layering fashion, where Cooper and Iron's characters become near-mirror images, representing the fusion between fact and fiction.

You can get a better look at the movie's twisting tale in the exclusive featurette above. "The Words," starring Olivia Wilde, Cooper, Irons, Zoe Saldana and Dennis Quaid hits theaters September 7.
