Now here is some intriguing and possibly amazing news that has been reported by Deadline, that James Franco’s Rabbit Bandini Productions has optioned the book and life rights to The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, which chronicles the making of Tommy Wiseau’s cult classic The Room.  Franco will direct and co-produce the adaptation, and has also expressed interest in starring in the film alongside his brother Dave Franco.  Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are onboard as executive producers, with Ryan Moody penning the screenplay.
