Experience the cult phenomenon on the big screen! THE ROOM, which inspired James Franco’s award-winning adaptation THE DISASTER ARTIST, follows Johnny – a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored with him and decides to seduce his best friend, Mark (Greg Sestero). From there, nothing will be the same again.
Greg Sestero is the New York Times best-selling author of the Oscar – nominated The Disaster Artist and Co-Star of the cult classic The Room. Greg also recently wrote and produced Best F(r)iends Volume 1 and Volume 2 (Lionsgate) and was recently seen in Netflix’s popular gothic-drama mini-series The Haunting of Bly Manor. His directorial/ horror genre debut, Miracle Valley, is currently streaming on Tubi. It is the first very first film to ever shoot at Frank Lloyd Wright’s world-renowned masterpiece Falling Water.
Greg’s 2013 memoir “The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made” was published by Simon & Schuster and adapted into a Golden Globe-winning film by Warner Bros and A24. It showcases an all-star cast including James Franco, Seth Rogen, Dave Franco, Sharon Stone, Bryan Cranston, and Alison Brie.
