Trailer: ‘The Disaster Artist’ - Dec 1

Directed by James Franco, written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, starring Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Ari Graynor, Paul Scheer Zac Efron and many more (no seriously check out the cast list on IMDB (spoilers)).

This looks like a lot of fun and the buzz out of TIFF is strong. I have a feeling this might not resonate as well with people who haven’t seen ‘The Room,’ but I think Franco has packed it with enough stars and oddities to make it stand alone. I’m also intrigued as to what Neustadter and Weber brought to the table, they have a solid track record (500 Days of Summer, The Spectacular Now, Paper Towns, Fault in Our Stars).
