A24’s ‘The Disaster Artist’ Poster Insists He Did Naaaht Hit Her, Plus the First Teaser Drops Tomorrow
James and Dave Franco joining forces to turn one of the wildest books about one of the wildest movie shoots into a movie of its own sounded too good (or too weird) to be true when The Disaster Artist was first announced, but they did it, and A24 snatched it up after it debuted at SXSW this year, and the first teaser is on its way tomorrow. But before all that, A24 debuted a shiny new poster for the movie, which sees James Franco going full Wiseau in a recording studio.
If you’ve seen the movie, and even if you haven’t, it’s no secret that most of the dialogue of Tommy Wiseau’s disasterpiece The Room is dubbed over. Parts of the movie work as a masterclass in how NOT to do ADR, plus it doesn’t help that the entire script is full of awkward, useless dialogue in the first place.
The Disaster Artist is based on the book by the same name, an autobiographical account of the making of The Room by one of its stars, Greg Sestero. The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made chronicles the fraught production of the 2003 film, Sestero’s own struggle to make it big as an actor, and his weird and unlikely friendship with Tommy Wiseau. The movie was developed by Seth Rogen and, in true Wiseau fashion, directed, produced, and starred in by James Franco.
The Disaster Artist hits theaters in a limited release December 1, before going wide December 8.
