Oh hai, Doggy.
In November of 2013, while filming THE INTERVIEW in Vancouver, James Franco saw THE ROOM for the very first time at the Rio Theatre.
That screening was hosted by actor Greg Sestero (aka as “Mark” in Tommy Wiseau‘s pop-culture phenomenon), who was discussing his recently released memoir, “The Disaster Artist.” The rest, as they say, is history…
With THE DISASTER ARTIST, director 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 Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of the cult-classic “disasterpiece” – “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
“THE DISASTER ARTIST is an endearing tale of friendship and chasing your dreams that packs a surprisingly poignant punch.” (Screen Rant)
“Oh, hai Mark. THE DISASTER ARTIST is a surprisingly poignant and charming movie-about-a-movie that explores the creative process with unexpected delicacy.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
