The Disaster Artist by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell tells the story of how Tommy Wiseau rose to fame, though probably not in the way that he thought he would, by making the infamous movie known as The Room.

James Franco is now adapting that book into a full length feature where he will play Wiseau and is having powerhouse screenwriting duo Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber write the adaptation. Franco does want Wiseau involved, but only in a finite capacity. 

The trailer for this will undoubtedly go viral.
