Dave Franco - Dave Franco Joins Brother In Film About The Room

Actor Dave Franco is set to share the screen with his older brother James Franco in the film adaptation of the book The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room.

The 127 Hours actor has been tapped to direct and star in the film, a drama about filmmaker Tommy Wiseau's 2003 cult favourite, The Room.

Following a special screening of The Room in Los Angeles on Sunday (08Jun14), the younger Franco sibling asked Wiseau during the question and answer portion, "How do you feel about me playing (actor) Greg Sestero in the movie?"

Wiseau replied, "That's what I say: It's a good choice!"

In addition to directing the film, James is adapting the behind-the-scenes book of the same name for the big screen, and will play the role of Wiseau, while Dave plays actor Sestero, who penned The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room.

In the tome, Sestero recalls his experiences acting alongside Wiseau in The Room, which has been described by many critics as one of the "worst movies ever made".
