Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber are penning the script for James Franco’s THE DISASTER ARTIST. Based on the book of the same name, the biopic tells the behind the scenes story of the making of Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room.” Franco is helming the project and will produce with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Franco and his brother Dave will also star in the project.
Neustadter and Weber are the scribes behind romantic dramas like “(500) Days of Summer” and “The Fault in Our Stars,” and also created the NBC comedy series “Friends With Benefits.” Next up, they’re keeping busy writing the scripts for the adaptations of Amor Towles’s “Rules of Civility,” John Green’s “Paper Towns,” and Jojo Moyes’ “Me Before You,” starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin.
