The first poster for James Franco’s The Disaster Artist just arrived, along with a release date for the first official teaser.
Let’s take a lookie:
First off, holy shit. They somehow managed to transform James Franco into a convincing Tommy Wiseau. I’m seriously impressed. For those not in the know, Wiseau is the writer, director, editor, and star of the best-worst movie ever made: The Room. He also may or may not be an alien. The Disaster Artist is based on the novel of the same which details the production of the trashterpiece from the perspective of Greg Sestero, friend of Wiseau and Greg in the original film.
I couldn’t be more excited for this thing. The Room is one of my favorite films of all time, and from all of the stories I’ve read from the making of this thing, the film should be delightfully insane. Not only that, but it’s an A24 film, which at this point serves as a stamp of quality. The film’s received a ton of positive buzz from the festival circuit and has a stacked cast to boot.
It’s safe to say that we here at Caffeinated Film are very fucking hyped for this. Keep your eyes peeled for the trailer tomorrow!
