And yet regardless of my feelings on The Room, James Franco's adaptation of the film's making-of, The Disaster Artist, uses Tommy Wiseau's infamous film as a springboard for a story of friendship and creativity.

A24 will release The Disaster Artist on December 1. Sitting down in Entertainment Weekly, PEOPLE, and InStyle's studio at the Toronto International Film Festival, Dave discussed why it's taken so long for them to collaborate.

"Because even though at the centre of this film is this really bad movie, I put so much of myself into this".

"I laughed", Franco said.

The Disaster Artist was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber and is based on the book from Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell.

Millions without power as Irma batters southeast US
In the Atlanta metropolitan area, about 13.2 percent of stations were out of the fuel, according to information service Gas Buddy. Storm surge was estimated at 10 feet above normal tide levels at Cudjoe Key, Florida , where Irma made landfall Sunday morning.

This looks unmissable, a love letter not only to those of us who love good bad movies, but a tribute to Wiseau himself, who, against all the odds, made a film that is treasured by millions. Franco's Tommy repeatedly insists that "Acting is truth", and in the post-screening Q&A, the real Sestero described the movie as "terrifyingly true".

The Disaster Artist is a complicated film to describe.

Tommy Wiseau - lead actor, director and writer of the cult-classic to end all cult-classics The Room - has never won an Oscar, and realistically probably never will.

The new movie stars James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Hannibal Buress, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, and Jacki Weaver.
