Working from Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy's cult-classic disaster piece THE ROOM, 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. 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.

“This hugely entertaining, sometimes hair-raising farce is an unusually approachable addition to Franco’s eccentric catalogue of directing projects...It features a genially goofy (and accurate) impersonation of Wiseau by Franco himself, plus irresistible interplay between the actor-director and his brother Dave Franco as Sestero, making this a genuinely moving bromance in every sense.” —Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
