James Franco directs this giddy tribute to eccentric filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and his friend actor Greg Sestero, whose notoriously awful film The Room has become one of the most beloved cult classics of all time (especially at Luna and SX where it has run for six years!) So come along and celebrate Opening Night with us on November 30 from 6.15pm at Luna Leederville. Enjoy a pop up bar experience, music entertainment by Harvey Rae, and tasty Siena's pizza on arrival. Film starts 6.45pm. (Supported by Sound Solutions)
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.
THE DISASTER ARTIST is already being spoken about as a possible awards-contender.
The Room, Tommy Wiseau's cult 'disasterpiece' will screen at Luna on SX on December 3 at 7pm hosted by James Palm. Tickets are on sale for these events.
