Oh hai, Mark. The Hollywood Reporter has good news for fans of “The Room”: Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero are reuniting for “Best F(r)iends.” Wiseau is confident about the success of the bizarre-looking project, which Gary Fong directed: “After watching Best F(r)iends, your mind will find paradise,” he promises. In addition to the scoop, THR also has a trailer. Watch it below.
In it, Sestero sports a blood-soaked shirt and a cardboard sign reading “Family kidnapped by ninjas, need $ 4 karate lessons.” Wiseau pulls up to him (in a hearse, no less) and offers him a job rather than money. Once they arrive to Wiseau’s mortuary, which sports a lava lamp and a picture of JFK, he reveals both his “canvas” and “masterpiece.” It somehow gets stranger from there.
In 2013, Sestero co-wrote a book about his experience on “The Room” called “The Disaster Artist”; James Franco’s “The Masterpiece,” which likewise chronicles the cult classic’s making, is currently in the works. “Best F(r)iends” was quietly shot over the summer and does not yet have a release date.
