First Trailer: James Franco’s “Disaster Artist”

The first trailer has arrived for James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist,” a film about the making of Tommy Wiseau’s legendarily terrible but cult favorite film “The Room”.

Based on the book written by writer-director-star Wiseau’s best friend Greg Sestero, the film stars James as Wiseau and his brother Dave Franco as Sestero alongside a cast that includes Seth Rogen, Lizzy Caplan, Zac Efron, Bryan Cranston, Josh Hutcherson, Kristen Bell, Dylan Minnette, Alison Brie, Zoey Deutch, Judd Apatow, Adam Scott and Sharon Stone.

The film has received strong reviews following a screening at SXSW to the point of potential awards talk – a first for a film directed by Franco. The film is set to premiere December 8th.
