James Franco is stepping in the director’s chair for a mockumentary film about The Room‘s Tommy Wiseau. In it, Franco will be playing Wiseau, while his usual band of buddies (Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Dave Franco, among others) will also be joining him.
The first trailer for The Disaster Artist is admittedly funny. I never cared for The Room or its midnight madness cult status, but I have laughed at the occasional clip shared among the inter webs.
While this movie looks dumb and pointless, I can’t lie and say that I didn’t laugh at the awkwardness of it all. Not to mention that this is based on a true story…
