Veterans Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Jeremy Irons anchor upcoming thriller “The Words,” but the film could mark a breakout in Hollywood for hot French actress Nora Arnezeder.
Arnezeder, 22, has already made a mark in France with a major role in the 2008 film “Paris 36,” directed by Christophe Barratier.

The film is set in Paris in 1936 as the left-wing, Popular Front government of Léon Blum comes to power, causing upheaval and class conflict on the eve of World War II.
Although only 18 at the time, Arnezeder plays a comely chanteuse called Douce, who is under the thumb of the local gangster in her local town.
Through her charm and stunning sexuality, she helps revive a local theater and gives hope to the people who live in the working class Paris suburb as they face hardship and political strife.
In the film, Nora sings “Loin de Paname,” which was nominated for Best Original Song at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards. (Lyrics by Frank Thomas, music by Reinhardt Wagner).
“The Words,” which also stars Dennis Quaid and Olivia Wilde, began shooting in Montreal last month.
The dramatic thriller follows a writer who, at the peak of his literary success, steals another writer’s work, and ignites a deadly cat and mouse game as the writer seeks his revenge.
