Franco bros team up for Room movie

James Franco is teaming up with his brother Dave to make a film about the worst movie ever made - The Room.

The Room is a 2003 indie romantic drama written, directed, starring and produced by Tommy Wiseau which has become a cult hit for being to bad.

James is planning to adapt The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, a book by The Room co-star Greg Sestero for the big screen.

According to Vulture, Dave Franco recently attended a screening of The Room, and during the question and answer session with Tommy afterwards he asked: "How do you feel about me playing Greg Sestero in the movie?" Tommy replied, "That's what I say: It's a good choice!"

Seth Rogen's production company, Point Grey Pictures, acquired the rights to Greg's book in January this year, and James is expected to direct and star as Tommy in the movie.
