This might be the odd situation where a movie based on the making of another movie, just might be better than the movie it’s based on. James Franco plays Tommy Wiseau, the writer, producer, director, and star of one of the worst movies EVER made, “The Room.”
“The Disaster Artist” is about the making of that infamous movie. James Franco directs what would surely be a funny good movie!
The film depicts the meeting and early friendship of the actor Greg Sestero and Tommy Wiseau, the actor, writer and director behind the 2003 cult film The Room, a film often hailed as the Citizen Kane of bad movies, the troubled making of it and their respective careers after the surprising success of the film.
The new movie stars James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Hannibal Buress, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, and Jacki Weaver.
“The Disaster Artist” hits theaters on December 1.
