James Franco and Seth Rogen are making a movie about the making of ‘The Room’

The Room

James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg are teaming up to adapt The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside the Room.

According to Deadline, Franco’s Rabbit Bandini Productions has purchased the book and life rights to Greg Sestero’s memoir, detailing his troubled time on the set of The Room, one of the most infamous film failures of all time.

Rogen and Goldberg will co-produce the flick.

Released to little fanfare in 2003, The Room – written, directed by, and starring oddball auteur Tommy Wiseau – is a kitchen-sink drama that has developed a cult following thanks to its nonsense script and lengthy, uncomfortably-lit sex scenes.

Today, it screens in cinemas across the globe, with audiences turning up in droves to shout-along its most memorable quotes and hurl plastic spoons at the screen (it’s a thing).

Franco hinted on Instagram that he and his brother Dave would star in the film adaptation, hopefully as Wiseau and Sestero, respectively.
