Make every word count.

"... if I say just one more sentence out loud...I'll die."

Jack McCall

A Thousand Words

Release Date: March 9, 2012

If you only had a thousand words to say before you die, how would you use them? That’s what Jack McCall (Eddie Murphy, Dreamgirls), a selfish, fast-talking literary agent must now learn to do—live without words. A Thousand Words tells the story of how one man is forced to stop talking in order to learn how to truly communicate with his wife (Kerry Washington), family and friends.

The film is directed by Brian Robbins, who himself started out as a comedy performer in the television hit Head of the Class, before graduating into directing and producing for television, features and premium content for the web with Awesomeness TV. The screenplay was written by Steve Koren.
