THE DISASTER ARTIST is a comedic tour-de-force that’s been causing waves in film festivals from San Sebastian to Toronto and has featured in every awards-season conversation. Directed by and starring James Franco as cult filmmaker (THE ROOM) Tommy Wiseau, THE DISASTER ARTIST is released in Ireland on December 8th but we have a chance for you to discover it for yourself on November 29th at The Irish Film Institute at a Sneak Peek screening.
With The Disaster Artist, director James Franco (As I Lay Dying, Child of God) transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic “disasterpiece” The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
Directed by James Franco, The Disaster Artist stars Dave Franco (Neighbors, Now You See Me) as Greg Sestero, James Franco (Oscar nominee for 127 Hours, TV’s The Deuce) as Tommy Wiseau, Seth Rogen (the Neighbors and Kung Fu Panda films) as Sandy Schklair, Alison Brie (Mad Men, GLOW) as Amber, Ari Graynor (For a Good Time, Call…) as Juliette Danielle, Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games films) as Philip Haldiman and Academy Award nominee Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook) as Carolyn Minnott.
