In these dark, dark times it seems there’s finally a shining light at the end of the tunnel. And that shining light is the first teaser trailer for the James Franco directed documentary “The Disaster Artist”.
“The Disaster Artist” is based on Greg Sestero’s book of the same title, which chronicles the production of the iconic cult favorite “The Room”. Sestero played main actor/director Tommy Wiseau’s best friend Mark.
Franco enlists brother Dave Franco (Mark) and many A-list friends: Alison Brie, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and others making cameos.
“When I read the book, I always said I identified with Tommy in a certain way,” said Franco after a roaring reception at this year’s SXSW, “But the more I sat with this movie and in post[-production] and going through my own stuff, like, I am Tommy Wiseau. I relate to him so much, in ways I don’t even want to admit.”
The movie opens in limited release December 1, and wide release December 8.
