“I did not hit her. It’s not true! It’s bullsh*t! I did not hit her! I did not. Oh, hi Mark.”
That famously poor line delivery from cult writer-producer-director-actor Tommy Wiseau is brought to life by James Franco in the first trailer and teaser poster for his next directorial effort, The Disaster Artist.
Based on the book of the same name by actor Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell, the film will chronicle the true story behind the scenes of the 2003 cult classic, The Room, which has grown a following over the past decade for being the “Citizen Kane of bad movies”. Like the book, the film will be told from the point of view of Sestero, played here by Dave Franco, as he watches his college-friend Tommy create his quotably dramatic and unintentionally hilarious magnum opus of love, betrayal, rose pedals, playing football in tuxedos, and breast cancer.
The Disaster Artist is set to tear audiences apart on December 8, with early screenings planned for December 1, just in time for award season.
