Yes, James Franco really did make a comedy, The Disaster Artist, about the making of the cult comedy, “best worst” movie The Room from Tommy Wiseau. After making noise on the festival circuit, A24 has opted to give it a release in theaters for a possible awards run.
We’re on board that move for two reasons. One, it’s a comedy making head way into awards contention that always biases towards heartbreaking drama and two, it’s a nifty sounding alternative to whatever holiday fare is playing at most multiplexes.
We’re looking forward to seeing if The Disaster Artist can fulfill the plenty that its promising.
