James Franco is making a movie about The Room. He recently required the rights to The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside the Room, Greg Sestero’s book about working with Tommy Wiseau on the beautifully terrible film. In Vice, Franco compared the book’s story to Boogie Nights, The Master, Sunset Boulevard, and The Talented Mr. Ripley. Franco will direct and produce, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg also on board as producers. Franco implied on Instagram last month that he’d star with his brother Dave Franco. They’re already photographing spoons as we speak.
