THE DISASTER ARTIST
Based on Greg Sestero best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy's cult-classic disasterpiece 'The Room' (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”)
The making of one of the worst films in movie history transforms into one of the best comedies of the year in James Franco’s The Disaster Artist. Based on Greg Sestero’s novel The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, The Greatest Bad Film Ever Made, James Franco directs and stars as the eccentric and mysterious Tommy Wiseau.
Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) is a nineteen-year-old aspiring actor when he meets Tommy Wiseau at an acting class in San Francisco. They become friends and Greg follows Tommy to Los Angeles where they start looking for acting jobs. When their careers in Hollywood are unsuccessful, Tommy decides to write, direct and star in his own movie: The Room.
The Disaster Artist follows the chaotic making of The Room which has since become a cult classic fifteen years since its first release.
Winner of a Golden Globe. Nominated for an Oscar®.
“James Franco scores on both sides of the camera in this wildly funny Ed Wood-esque ode to great, bad moviemaking…”
