The Disaster Artist Movie Quotes
The Disaster Artist movie quotes help tell the true story of Tommy Wiseau as he created the movie The Room. The biographical comedy was directed by James Franco using a screenplay Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber adapted from the book The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Film Ever Made by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell. The Disaster Artist opened wide in theaters in the United States on December 8, 2017.
In The Disaster Artist, aspiring actors Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) and Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) bond over their struggles to become big Hollywood stars and quickly become friends. So one day when Greg makes an offhand comment about making their own movie, Tommy takes this as the best idea ever.
Along with his mysterious millions in funding, Tommy begins to write, direct, act in and produce The Room alongside Greg and Greg's girlfriend, Amber (Alison Brie). But it soon becomes painfully clear to the cast and crew (including Seth Rogen, Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson and Jacki Weaver) that Tommy might just be creating the worst movie ever made.
The Disaster Movie was just one of several late 2017 movies vying for the top awards in Hollywood alongside the likes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Mother!, Dunkirk, Baby Driver.
