Think Tommy Wiseau Just Did 'The Room'? Surprise - He's Back On Screenby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

The cult hit movie ‘The Room’ regarded by thousands as the ‘best worst movie ever made’ – has ascended to further popularity in recent months thanks to the success of James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, a movie based upon Greg Sestero’s book of the same name – which detailed exactly how the incredibly odd film came to fruition. By the looks of things – according to Wiseau’s friend and fellow actor Sestero – it was a process that you could hardly make up. Wiseau’s origins themselves are incredibly mysterious – and his own unique acting ‘style’ has inspired ‘bad movie night’ and hundreds of big-screen re-airings of his magnum opus over the years. Wiseau was able to bankroll a movie, a pet project, which rolled into millions of dollars – with no clear evidence as to how!

While many will believe that Wiseau is a one-trick pony, it’s time to think again – though the actor, writer and director has welcomed widespread interest and delight in The Room, he has certainly been keeping himself busy with various projects in film and TV – and has even alluded to potentially bringing The Room into 3D. He’s also suggested that he may even want to play Batman villain The Joker in years to come – is there a more fitting choice?

Wiseau is finally reuniting with Sestero on-screen for the first time in 15 years, as they together launch marketing for an altogether odd-looking project called ‘Best F(r)iends’. This time, the movie was written by Sestero and Justin MacGregor has been brought in to direct – though while Wiseau won’t be anywhere near the directing chair this time, he plays a pivotal role in a film which appears to be about an unlikely duo facing a series of dark comic circumstances.

It’s not clear quite how wide the release will be for the movie – but you can expect to see it in parts on some scale around the end of March and the start of June – as it seems to be going for a volumed approach. Will it have the same appeal and long-term cult status that The Room still enjoys? Who’s to say – but it seems to be an event that hardcore Room fanatics certainly won’t want to miss. Sestero and Wiseau have been close friends ever since The Room premiered – and it seems they’re still keen to work together to this day.
