AceShowbiz - One more name is added to the cast list of %cJames Franco%-directed "The Disaster Artist". %cKate Upton% joins the comedy film which sees the making-of %cTommy Wiseau%'s cult classic "The Room".
Released in 2003, "The Room" centers on a man whose fiancee cheats on him with his best friend. Wiseau who directed, produced, wrote and starred in the pic had no experience in filmmaking at that time so the shooting was chaotic and the film was often regarded as the worst film of all time. However, it developed a strong cult who called the film "so bad it's good."
%cGreg Sestero%, who starred in the film, wrote a nonfiction book "The Disaster Artist" in 2013 with Tom Bissell. The book recalled Sestero's experience as a struggling actor, his experience filming with the eccentric Wiseau and their unlikely friendship.
Franco is directing the comedy film and will star as Wiseau. His brother %cDave Franco% is attached to play Sestero, starring opposite %cJosh Hutcherson% and %cSeth Rogen% among others. Upton's casting was first revealed by THR but her role was not mentioned.
Shooting was scheduled to start on Monday, December 7. No release date is announced yet.
