When The Room was unleashed unto the world in 2003, it became the best movie ever made for being the absolute worst. So much so, that to this day the cinematic disaster-piece has rallied an incredible cult following of people who are equally baffled at its infinite weirdness, but also reluctantly impressed by it.
Here's the trailer for the movie, which summed up in one sentence is essentially about a man named Johnny, his struggles with his best pal Mark and sneaky bride-to-be Lisa, and some random named Denny:
And just when we thought that the ambiguous accents, awkward dialogue, mind-boggling sex scenes, and terrible screen shots featuring tons of spoons (yes, really!) in The Room could inspire us no more, more madness is now in store.
'The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made'
Apparently, after starring in the unintentional comedy, actor Greg Sestero ("Oh hi Mark!") thought it was necessary to write a memoir called 'The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made.'
If you're wondering, the book's focus is on the difficulties and odd experiences of making the movie, as well as the actor's bizarre friendship with the one-of-a-kind genius that is Tommy Wiseau. And now, you'll be happy to know that it's finally being made into a movie!
James Franco steps into the role of Tommy Wiseau
Ever the man to star in a controversial or wildly hilarious movie, James Franco has stepped up to the challenge of bringing the infamous director to life alongside his brother Dave, who has apparently agreed to stick some rather dubious facial hair onto his face to look like Greg Sestero.
And if you think all of this is some kind of joke, here's the proof that this movie is definitely happening. Yesterday, as the first day of filming was underway, James shared this phenomenal snap of himself donning a Tommy wig alongside his brother Dave's on-point impersonation of Mark.
In my eyes, it couldn't be more perfect!
What else do we know about 'The Disaster Artist'?
Well, in the true spirit of Tommy Wiseau – the man whose talent simply knows no bounds – it appears that James Franco is both directing and starring in the project.
The basic plot concerns itself with the delusional journey that Wiseau and Sestero undertook in order to bring the so-totally-terrible-it's-actually-amazing project that was The Room to life. As well as chronicling Sestero's life before, during, and after the movie, audiences will also be subject to the ways in which Wiseau wrote, produced, starred in and directed it, despite being perhaps the least qualified person in the world for those positions.
Additionally, as well as actors Ari Graynor, Jacki Weaver, Hannibal Buress and Andrew Santino reportedly being involved, huge Hollywood names such as Seth Rogan, blonde bombshell Kate Upton, and Zac Efron have also signed on to the disaster-movie extravaganza.
Admittedly, it's going to be unashamedly ridiculous, but also super fun because at this point, anything The Room touches is sure to turn to absolute gold.
Let's just hope the Franco brothers can recreate a scene as iconic as this:
