THE DISASTER ARTIST Teaser: James Franco and Seth Rogen Each Have Their Challenges

In a new teaser for The Disaster Artist, James Franco tries to act and Seth Rogen tries to direct. But it's not going very well.

The film explores the making of Tommy Wiseau's legendarily awful The Room, which is what put me off, initially. That is, until I talked to our own Zach Gayne and then read his review out of SXSW, which concluded: "The Disaster Artist is not only far funnier than you might expect, it's also far deeper than a film about the worst movie of the 21st century has any right to be."

So, Zach's reasoned and well-considered review now makes me curious about what James Franco has cooked up. The first teaser, which you can watch below, raises eyebrows a bit more.

The Disaster Artist will grace (?!) movie screens starting on December 1, courtesy of A24 Films.

I've never seen The Room, I don't know if I could sit through it. But this looks funny.

My girlfriend and I are OBSESSED with The Room. Her, more so. She's read the book, she's read the interviews, and I had no idea *this* happened until she brought it up a few months ago. Imagine my delight when I found out the story she told me turned out to be this movie's teaser. I'm with Stu. Take my moneys. Now.

I actually admire people like Wiseau and Neil Breen. They’re so driven and almost fearless, despite their obvious shortcomings. I’ve known a lot of very talented people who have achieved little or nothing out of laziness and/or fear. The Disaster Artist is an oddly inspiring book. I hope the movie reflects a little bit of that.
