If you’re an avid follower of RetroEnt (which you definitely should be BTW) you’ll probably remember an article we wrote in May about an upcoming movie (The Disaster Artist) following the making of the hysterically terrible ‘The Room.’ And of course, James Franco is behind it. And of course, we’ll watch anything with James Franco in it (love you, Jamesy). And of course, it actually looks pretty epic. And of course…okay, we’ll just get on with it now.
There are few movies out there that people across the world have all concluded are categorically AWFUL – but one movie we can all agree on is ‘The Room.’ Tommy Wiseau’s ‘The Room’ has wowed people across the globe with how disastrous it is. But despite it’s negative reviews, it’s built up a huge cult following because it is truly unique and fascinating (and because we’ve never seen a movie quite like it). After the reaction to the movie, The Room actor, Greg Sestero wrote a book about the filming of the movie, called The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made. Now, that book is being made into a movie – and the first trailer has dropped.
The Disaster Artist will be directed by the one and only James Franco, who will also star as Wiseau, and who has managed to rope in a pretty amazing cast to get on board. The movie will star the likes of Seth Rogen, Dave Franco, Bryan Cranston, Zac Efron, Josh Hutcherson, Kristen Bell, Lizzy Caplan, Sharon Stone, Judd Apatow, and more. I mean, you don’t get much more comedy-spoof than that cast do you?
Yesterday, Franco released the trailer for the upcoming movie – and it’s pretty hilarious. We’ll let you see for yourself.
Let’s just hope the whole thing is better than The Room. Oh Haaaaaai!
