A film that is so bad, it’s good.
2003’s cult classic, “The Room”, is one of those films. From its non sequiturs, plot holes, inconsistent characterizations, questionable editing, lackadaisical acting, and just terrible cinematography, “The Room” epitomizes silver screen irony.
The film has sold out crowds over the past decade, with movie goers quoting the films hilarious dialogue and dressing up as the main characters. It’s a great spectacle, and a testament to the effect the film has on people.
Now, in an interesting case of movie-ception, comedy duo James Franco and Seth Rogen have been producing a movie about the making of “The Room”. The film, which is based on the memoir “The Disaster Artist” written by Greg Sestero, one of “The Room’s” lead, will explore the unique friendship between Tommy Wisseau and Sestero. The two men will be played by James Franco, and his brother Dave Franco, with Seth Rogen playing the role of one of the movies directors. The film will also star Alyson Brie, Bryan Cranston, and Zac Efron.
“The Masterpiece”, as the movie will be known, will be released in the fall of 2016. Until then, enjoy one of the most famous scenes from the 2003 classic.
