July 18 (UPI) – James Franco portrays infamous filmmaker Tommy Wiseau in the first teaser trailer for The Disaster Artist.

The clip released Tuesday, features James repeatedly attempting to remember his lines while filming cult-classic film The Room, a picture that is widely regarded as the worst film ever made.

Helping James with his lines is Dave Franco, who portrays Room star Greg Sestero whose memoir The Disaster Artist, serves as the inspiration for the film. Seth Rogen is also seen as Room script supervisor Sandy Schklair.

Once James remembers his lines, Dave and Rogen are seen celebrating along with the rest of the film crew as his bizarre portrayal is seemingly welcomed.

“Based on the true story of one movie so bad it became infamous,” the teaser notes.

The Disaster Artist directed by James, also stars Paul Scheer and Jason Mantzoukas. The film is set for wide release on Dec. 8.
