The Room is a movie that people laugh at and not with, and The Disaster Artist, adapted from the book by Wiseau's co-star Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell, leans into the more absurd aspects of its creation. And you definitely didn't find Tommy Wiseau's The Room some boundless well of midnight movie entertainment.You were the real deal. He's weird, he's arrogant, and he has no business writing, directing, and starring in a movie, but we kind of love him anyway, especially because Franco leans into his vulnerabilities. Greg, for his part, is a pretty normal dude, so every time he goes to pursue an independent interest like his career or a romantic relationship, Tommy reacts poorly, which further strains their friendship. They understand kinship, having a shorthand, and lifting the other person up when they're feeling down.
In a separate interview with The Los Angeles Times, Tommy Wiseau revealed that he trusted his story to James Franco because he is a big fan of the 2002 Nicolas Cage film Sonny, a crime drama that received nearly universally negative reviews at the time of its release.
Expect this to be a serious awards season contender. However, the one that's made the strongest run for that title in the last 20 years is probably Tommy Wiseau's 2003 movie The Room. Watching the above trailer, we get it.

The Register notes that the fine itself was not kicked out, but a decision made by the lower court is being called into question. Intel appealed the Commission's decision to the General Court (GC) but the GC dismissed the appeal in 2014.
Filmed like an inspirational biopic about a heartwarming rags-to-riches story, The Disaster Artist will show Wiseau's rise to unconventional fame in the most delightful way it could.
Prior to its TIFF debut, "The Disaster Artist" premiered to rave reviews at SXSW, where Franco was labelled early as a probable Best Actor contender.
The film is out in the United Kingdom in December and should arrive in the United Kingdom not long afterwards.
