James Franco to Remake Cult Movie “The Room”

The terrible movie that became a midnight sensation and then a book is going to be a movie that might not be terrible

WHAT: The terrible movie that became a midnight sensation and then a book is going to be a movie that might not be terrible—but it’s going to star James Franco.
 
VERDICT: Break out the spoons! That’s right. James Franco and Seth Rogen are remaking The Room, the ultimate cult movie. Written by, directed, and starring Tommy Wiseau, it’s a cinema stinker for the ages—and that’s its charm. Franco should tread lightly. If he tries making the movie better, he’ll only be making it worse. Franco…you’re tearing us apart!

    The movie is based on “The Disaster Artist,” a behind-the-scenes book about the The Room. Not a remake of the original.
