Everything You Need to Know About James Franco's "The Disaster Artist"

James Franco's latest movie The Disaster Artist follows the story of Hollywood mystery-man Tommy Wiseau and his creation of The Room. Wiseau wrote, produced, directed and starred in what is widely known as the "best worst movie of all time," which now has an impressive cult following. Wiseau is widely known as a mysterious man, refusing to reveal where he's from, how old he is and where he got the $6 million to produce his movie.

James Franco stars as Wiseau, alongside younger brother Dave Franco who plays Wiseau's actor-friend, Greg Sestero. The movie follows the behind-the-scenes of the making of The Room and has even sparked some Oscar buzz. Additionally, The Disaster Artist is rumored to become James Franco's most successful movie, which is hilarious considering it's based on one of the worst movies of all time.

Based on the trailersThe Disaster Artist looks super funny and contains two alternating storylines: the chaotic making of "The Room" and the heartwarming story of Wiseau and Sestero's friendship that somehow survived it. Wiseau publicly approves of The Disaster Artist and even admitted Franco's depiction of his story is "99.9 percent accurate."

The movie is packed with cameos, including Kristen Bell, Lizzy Caplan, Adam Scott, J.J. Abrams and Judd Apatow, who all play themselves. According to Franco, a short scene with Zac Efron and Josh Hutcherson is one of the most memorable moments of the film.

The Disaster Artist is said to stand on its own without context of The Room, but if you do decide to watch Wiseau's movie you will definitely have some difficulty finding it online. The Room isn't streaming anywhere, but it has been consistently available in select theaters since 2003. Check out the screening schedule to find out where to watch. If you don't have time to watch, I suggest at least watching James Franco's nighttime television show interviews explaining the two movies.
