Elevation Pictures x Mr. Will want to give Readers a chance to win Run-of-Engagement Passes to see TIFF ’17 selection, THE DISASTER ARTIST, based on Greg Sestero‘s Memoir about his experience working on Tommy Wiseau‘s Cult Classic, THE ROOM.
A behind-the-scenes look at the making of Tommy Wiseau‘s The Room (2003), starring Tommy (James Franco) and his best friend, actor Greg Sestero (Dave Franco). The two met during an acting workshop, when Greg was just an aspiring actor.
Tommy takes Greg under his wing, setting him up in Los Angeles in an apartment Tommy rarely uses. While Greg soon finds an agent (Sharon Stone) and a girlfriend (Alison Brie), Tommy isn’t as lucky, so he decides to write, direct and star in his own movie, despite lacking talent in any of those areas.
The Room, made on a production budget of $6,000, was notoriously awful. It opened in two Los Angeles theaters in June 2003 and grossed a pitiful $1,200, but in a twist of fate, went on to earn a cult following, earning the dubious honor of being dubbed “the Citizen Kane of bad movies.”

Elevation Pictures release THE DISASTER ARTIST Friday, December 1, 2017.
TIFF ’17 continues to go amazingly-well for us, but even being at the half-way mark we’re still not done! Check out some of the amazing sightings we had today!
MARK FELT: THE MAN WHO BROUGHT DOWN THE WHITE HOUSE has all the pedigree of a winner. The Drama centers on “Deep Throat“, the man who as an anonymous source led to the Watergate Scandal investigation. Its stars Liam Neeson, Diane Lane and Tony Goldwyn and premieres tonight at Ryerson Theatre. We spotted Neeson and Lane out earlier and they were both amazingly- nice, taking a quick moment to stop. We’re in love with our Selfie with Neeson and Lane has starred in two of our faves, Secretariat and Unfaithful!
BREATHE is coming into TIFF ’17 with lots of buzz. The Tearjerker marks Andy Serkis‘ directorial debut and is based on its Producer Jonathan Cavendish‘s parents’ story. Robin Cavendish, his father, is known for breaking ground in helping the severely-disabled gain freedom with mobility chairs. Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, long with Serkis were out and about today doing Press and it was a pure joy seeing them interact with their fans!
HOSTILES also premieres tonight at Princess of Wales Theatre and stars Academy Award winner Christian Bale and Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike. The Duo were out and about earlier promoting the Film and while they were private largely most of the day we were lucky to spot them amidst their hectic schedule. The Drama is about a US Cavalry Officer who accompanies reluctantly, a Cheyenne War Chief and his family back to their tribal lands. Bale is sporting a new look for his role as Dick Cheney, hence if you couldn’t recognize him, someone’s done their job good!
We loved chatting with Ari Graynor, Dave Franco and Paul Scheer about their new Film THE DISASTER ARTIST, premiering at Midnight Madness. While James Franco was to be a part of the chat, alas he was behind schedule. We did find him on the Red Carpet though where he was really giving to Media and fans! And even Rachel McAdams and Cult Icon Tommy Wiseau whom James Franco portrays, came out! You will LOVE this Film. It is hilarious! Check back towards the Holidays as our chat goes live.
The Disaster Artist chronicles Writer/Director Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) through the development, production and shocking success of the cult classic The Room.
The Film’s script could’ve become a mean mockery of Wiseau’s dream but instead it depicts an empathetic character study of him, all while being uproariously funny. It has a terrific transformative lead performance from Franco, a strong supporting cast, and many hilarious cameos. Franco becomes Wiseau in what is one of his greatest performances to date. Fans of The Room will not be disappointed with this comedic portrayal of how the beloved cult classic got made.
The Disaster Artist screens at TIFF on Sept. 11 at Ryerson Theatre at 11:59PM, and Sept. 12 at Scotiabank Theatre #1 at 6:45PM.

Formerly known as Townies, the Film gets a release May 9, 2014 via Universal Pictures.
With filming just about to wrap in-studio for Rom-Com No Stranger Than Love in the next couple weeks, we spotted Nanaimo-born Actor Justin Chatwin in the City after a long day on-set with Co-Star Alison Brie (Mad Men, Community). The Actor known for his work in Blockbuster War of the Worlds and more recently, Showtime Series Shameless, is said to have taken a liking to amazing Thai “It Spot” Khao San Road during his stay. Despite appearing tired, Chatwin still made the effort to stay for Snaps with Fans.
Meanwhile, Brie was spotted this weekend at the Movies with said Boyfriend Dave Franco and even took-in a Blue Jays Game together this weekend. Colin Hanks whom we spotted last month, recently wrapped work on the Production.
No Stranger than Love, by Toronto Director/Writer Nick Wernham, centers on a High School Art Teacher (Brie) and married Football Coach (Hanks) who decide to have an affair, before he disappears into a hole in her Living Room.
At just 34 years of age, James Franco has achieved what many of his Peers will never accomplish in a lifetime – a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Attending the Ceremony earlier today in support of Franco were his Mother Betsy Lou, younger Brother Dave and longtime Friend Seth Rogen. Franco’s acting career began back in 1997 and ever since, we have seen a truly eclectic body of work from the Actor ranging from Action Flicks to Soap Operas to Arthouse Films.
Tomorrow sees the release of his eagerly-awaited Oz The Great and Powerful, the Prequel to The Wizard of Oz, which has him in the Titular Role. This perhaps is his biggest role yet in Career which has seen several highs. Click here to read my glowing Review!

“Why can’t I connect with people? Oh right, it’s because I’m dead.”.
Delightfully-quirky and based on the Novel of the same name by Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies is the latest effort from 50/50 Director/Screenwriter, Jonathan Levine. The Romantic Comedy-Horror stars Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, A Single Man) and Breakout Stars Dave Franco (21 Jump Street), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love.) and Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four).
Montreal-filmed Warm Bodies centers around a Zombie known as R (Hoult), becomes involved with the Girlfriend (Palmer) of one of his Victims, quite possibly changing forever the world of the non-living.
Although the Young Adult/Teen Fantasy Genre increasingly is becoming crowded in 2013 with the upcoming releases of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Beautiful Creatures and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, this Film carves its own niche with walk on the funny and wild side and who better to helm this than Levine who brought us to laughter and tears with 2011 Cancer Comedy 50/50. This looks to be the right mixture of sweet and salty.
Watch the charming and gory Trailer below:
eOne Films releases Warm Bodies in Canada on February 1, 2013.
