The movie is based on Greg Sestero’s non-fiction book of the same name, which talks about the making of Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 cult film The Room.


The Disaster Artist depicts how Sestero and Wiseau met and their subsequent early friendship. The Room has the unfortunate reputation as being one of the worst movies ever made.

Other members of the supporting cast in Franco’s movie are Seth Rogen, Dave Franco, Zac Efron, Melanie Griffith and Sharon Stone.

The movie is scheduled to be released in a limited release on December 1 this year.
