“This my movie and it’s my life. We both have this dream that we’ll be famous, we’ll show them. Watch out here we come.” Based on Greg Sestero’s non-fiction book of the same name, the biographical comedy-drama ‘The Disaster Artist’ is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 cult film The Room, one of the most infamously terrible (but oddly delightful) movies of all-time.
“It’s not gonna happen for you, not in a million years.” “What about after that?” “This town they don’t want me.” “I wish we could just make our own movie.” “That great idea.” Seen through the eyes of Greg Sestero (Dave Franco), who served as a line producer on the film and played Mark, of “oh, hi Mark” fame, ‘The Disaster Artist’ is directed, produced by, and starring James Franco who plays Wiseau, adopting the filmmaker’s trademark accent and aloofness to eerie perfection.
“You really are going to make this thing?” “We are going to together.” 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.
“Take 13, action.” “I did not hit her I…okay, okay line. I did not hit her, it’s not true it’s bulls*it, I did not hit her, I did not. Take 67, action. I hit her.” “No!, do you want to change the line?” Written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber in addition to the Franco brothers, the bizarre ineptitude film stars an all-star ensemble cast featuring Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zoey Deutch, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Hannibal Buress, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, and Jacki Weaver. ‘The Disaster Artist’ premiered at South by Southwest on March 12, 2017 to a standing ovation. It is scheduled to be released in a limited release on December 1, 2017 by A24, before opening wide on December 8, 2017.
