A teaser trailer has been released for The Disaster Artist, a movie about the making of one of the worst movies ever made, The Room, which also happens to have a massive cult following because of how awful it is.
The movie is based on the book The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made by Greg Sestero, who played Mark, and Tom Bissell. It stars James Franco as the writer, director, producer, and star of The Room, Tommy Wiseau.
Continue below to check out the trailer, along with a poster for the movie.
With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau – an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable – into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend— and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
Also starring in the movie is Dave Franco as Mark, Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson, Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Zac Efron, Hannibal Burress, Andrew Santino, and Kate Upton.
The screenplay is written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, who previously penned The Spectacular Now and The Fault in Our Stars.
The Disaster Artist is set to be released on December 1st. You can find much more on The Room right here if interested.
