So James Franco’s The Disaster Artist is finally opening, and my oral history about its production is the cover story in this week’s NOW.
This was one of the weirdest and most ambitious things I’ve ever pitched to the paper — and, perhaps not surprisingly, a lot of work to pull together — and guess what, I’m really happy with how it came out.
So, to borrow a phrase from that Tommy guy, go read it and have a fun. And then go see The Disaster Artist, which is so much better than it might have been. And maybe also listen to Jason Connery’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie where we talked about The Room; we had a fun there, too.
