Jack McCall is a fast-talking literary agent who can close any deal, any time, any way. He has set his sights on New Age guru Dr. Sinja for his own selfish purposes. But Dr. Sinja is on to him, and Jack’s life comes unglued after a magical Bodhi tree mysteriously appears in his backyard. With every word Jack speaks, a leaf falls from the tree and he realizes that when the last leaf falls, both he and the tree are toast. Words have never failed Jack McCall, but now he’s got to stop talking and conjure up some outrageous ways to communicate or he’s a goner.The film co-stars Allison Janney, Clark Duke, Cliff Curtis, Jack McBrayer, John Witherspoon and Kerry Washington and is directed by Murphy’s Meet Dave and Norbit helmer, Brian Robbins. A Thousand Words opens March 9th, 2012.
