The Disaster Artist
An all-star comedy smash-in-waiting, the prolific artist/writer/actor/director/Ultra-Famous Person, James Franco presents this mind-bending comedy of cinematic chaos. Rammed with hip talent, including Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Alison Brie and Josh Hutcherson, ‘The Disaster Artist’ is going to be one of THE comedy films of the year. In it, we meet aspiring filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and best friend Greg Sestero, who move to Los Angeles, to make it big in Hollywood. Wiseau’s got a project, which he self-finances, writes, directs and stars in, a feature film called ‘The Room’. Trouble is, it’s awful and it gets critically panned. But, in an unexpected twist, the film becomes a cult classic and Wiseu’s reputation is saved. Or is it?
