The Disaster Artist (Work-In-Progress)
This is a true story about the making of "The Room" – the cult classic described as the “Citizen Kane of bad movies.” "The Disaster Artist," directed by and starring James Franco, is a buddy comedy about two outsiders chasing a dream. When the world rejects them, they decide to make their own movie – and it’s a movie so wonderfully awful due to its unintentional hilarious moments, meandering plots and terrible acting.
