The first teaser for James Franco’s biographical The Disaster Artist has arrived and IT’S TEARING US APART, LISA! In a good way, of course.
Directed, produced by, and starring James Franco, the new film chronicles the making of Tommy Wiseau’s cult classic, The Room (The greatest movie ever made, honestly), as per Greg Sestero’s non-fiction book. The film stars Franco as Wiseau, his brother, Dave Franco, as Sestero, and features a stacked supporting cast of Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Hannibal Burress, Sharon Stone, Jackie Weaver, Josh Hutcherson and more.
The Disaster Artist depicts the meeting and early friendship of Wiseau and Sestero, the troubled making of The Room, and the careers of the actors after the surprising success of the film. A24 has picked up the film for distribution, with a scheduled limited release to come on December 1st, before opening wide a week later.
