James Franco and Seth Rogen on the set of The Disaster Artist
James Franco was spotted filming a scene for his new comedy, The Disaster Artist, and you can view photos in the gallery below. Franco is directing and starring in the film, based on the book by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell. Seth Rogen was also on set, but he was behind the camera for this scene.
The movie tells the story of the making of The Room, widely considered one of the worst movies of all time. Franco stars as the eccentric Tommy Wiseau, the director and star of the 2003 drama, which developed a strong cult following, including among celebrities who loved it in a “so bad it’s good” way. Wiseau had no film-making experience when he set out to write, direct and produce The Room, which centers on a man named Johnny whose fiancee, Lisa, cheats on him with his best friend, Mark.
The Disaster Artist co-stars Dave Franco, Rogen, Zac Efron, Josh Hutcherson, Kate Upton, Ari Graynor, Jacki Weaver, Hannibal Buress, Andrew Santino and Alison Brie.
