In case you haven't heard of it, the film was released in 2003 and follows the life of Johnny, a successful banker whose wife decides to seduce his best friend. As the synopsis reads, "from there, nothing will be the same again." It's gained a cult following thanks to Wiseau's strange and, to be honest, absolutely dreadful performance.

This biopic is directed by James Franco, who also stars in the lead role as Wiseau, and is based on the making-of book by Greg Sestero and Tom Bisell. Co-stars include Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zac Efron, Josh Hutcherson, Jacki Weaver, Ari Graynor, and Jason Mantzouka.

The Disaster Artist is due for release on 1 December, 2017.
