Just watch The Room.
It's about the making of The Room, it's not a remake and the review from film festivals have been incredible.
"A movie about the worst movie ever made received an extended standing ovation at the South by Southwest Film Festival on Sunday night.
James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, which focuses on the making of 2003’s infamous misfire The Room (once called the “Citizen Kane of bad movies”), drew loud applause and big laughs throughout its screening and won praise for Franco’s turn as The Room writer, director, and star, Tommy Wiseau. (The mysterious Wiseau, whose age and nationality remain unclear, was in attendance in Austin, Texas for the screening; according to Franco, Wiseau had hoped his part in The Disaster Artist would have gone to Johnny Depp.)
Based on The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made by The Room star Greg Sestero (played by Franco’s younger brother Dave in the film) and Tom Bissell, The Disaster Artist combines elements of Ed Wood, American Movie, and The Producers to tell the story of how Wiseau and Sestero became friends in San Francisco during the late ’90s, moved to Los Angeles, and eventually teamed up to make The Room (which had a possible, unverified production budget of $6 million). In addition to the Franco brothers, The Disaster Artist features an all-star cast of supporting players, including Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Ari Graynor, Alison Brie, Sharon Stone, Melanie Griffith, Paul Sheer, Jason Mantzoukas, Hannibal Burress, Jacki Weaver, and Zac Efron. Franco directed the movie from a script by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Spectacular Now), recreating scenes from The Room to the letter for his project. (A side-by-side comparison between The Room and The Disaster Artist is shown during the credits.)" Link
