Dave Franco to Co-star With His Brother in Movie About The Room

The specific production details haven't been announced, but the movie about the making of the best worst movie ever, The Room — which James Franco is set to direct and star in as director/star/producer/writer/everything Tommy Wiseau — keeps on chugging along. Last night, after a screening of The Room, Dave Franco stood up during the Q&A portion to ask Wiseau, "How do you feel about me playing Greg Sestero in the movie?" Wiseau responded, "That's what I say: It's a good choice!" Sestero played Mark in The Room and wrote the book The Disaster Artist, which James Franco is adapting. Much of the book focuses on the friendship between Wiseau and Sestero, so it might be weird seeing those parts played by fairly similar-looking brothers. Sorry, not might. It will definitely be weird, but that'll be the point.
