Comedian Eddie Murphy is back on the big screen -- this time as a man whose life has been shortened to mere words in the upcoming movie A Thousand Words. Less than three months after the release of Tower Heist to lukewarm reviews, Murphy seeks gold at the box office with the tongue-in-cheek comedy, which comes with a timeless lesson: Words matter.

Kerry Washington, notable for her roles in Ray and The Last King of Scotland, joins Murphy on the big screen.

A Thousand Words hits theaters on March 9.
