Josh Hutcherson in Talks to Join James Franco's 'The Disaster Artist'
Having just ended his career-launching turn in the four part YA saga The Hunger Games, Hutcherson is in talks to join James and Dave Franco in New Line's The Disaster Artist, a comedy based on the cult classic The Room.
James Franco will direct the film from a script written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. It takes a fun, in-depth look at how Tommy Wiseau came up with the idea for what is regarded as one of the worst films ever made. Despite that, it has a broad cult following, and theaters continue to play midnight runs of it during weekends.
Hutcherson has appeared in Franco's last two directorial roles, In Dubious Battle and The Long Home, both in post production.
