The Disaster Artist: James Franco Owns the Part of Tommy Wiseau in First Full Trailer

What could be better than watching one of the worst films ever made? How about watching a film about the making of one of the worst films ever made?

Directed by and starring James Franco (11.22.63, The Deuce), The Disaster Artist tells the tale of real life actor, writer, and director Tommy Wiseau and the making of his so-bad-it’s-good film, The Room. Written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Fault in Our Stars), The Disaster Artist is directly based on the tell-all novel, The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made, co-written by The Room co-star Greg Sestero.

In addition to James Franco, who seems to own the part of Tommy Wiseau, the upcoming comedy/biopic also stars frequent collaborator Seth Rogen (Neighbors) as director Sandy Schklair and James’ younger brother Dave Franco (Nerve) as Greg Sestero. Additionally, the film stars Allison Brie (Community), Zac Efron (Baywatch), and Kate Upton (The Other Woman), among others.

Despite being regarded as one of the worst films ever made, The Room has become something of a cultural phenomenon in recent years. These days anyone with an internet connection has some idea of what the film entails and can even recall now iconic pieces of dialogue like, “You’re tearing me apart, Lisa!” or “Oh, hi Mark.” Judging from the trailer for The Disaster Artist, the film will seemingly tell a funny, yet respectful, interpretation of the behind-the-scenes events that led to the creation of The Room, and hopefully won’t just be a goofy parody of it. Check out the new trailer below followed by the initial teaser released back in July.

The Disaster Artist is set to release theatrically this December 2017.
