HOLLYWOOD – The star, writer and director of The Room Tommy Wiseau is to play James Franco in a new film about the actor called simply: Asshole.
First James Franco made The Disaster Artist about Tommy Wiseau and now Tommy Wiseau is making his own film about the life of James Franco. Asshole will be the storythe rise of the writer, director and actor James Franco, from his humble beginnings on Freaks and Geeks to his triumph in Spider-Man 2.
Tommy spoke with the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY about the project:
I like James. I say James, you’re my best friend. We make movie together and everything. But he steal my life. He act like me. Not just like me. He is me. And I say ha ha! That’s okay. But inside I get mad as hell. That’s what we’re all like in New Orleans. We get angry but we hide it. It’s a famous thing. You know.
The last straw was the Golden Globes. He win big prize and he is playing me. So I go up and I try to talk into mic and he push me away, he say like no way Tommy. Or something like that. I don’t know. So I say afterwards, it’s okay James. I make movie about you. And him and Seth Rogen and Dave Franco his incredibly young looking father, they’re like ha ha, very funny. Big joke. And I’m thinking yeah it’s just a joke. But deep down under that thought there’s another thought and that thought is I’m going make movie.
What the f…
No, that’s the title of your movie.
Oh yeah. Asshole. Ha ha. It’s a big joke. But it isn’t because he really is an asshole. And everyone will see.
