Before you read on any further, it's understood that you have at least seen The Room or have a cursory understanding of who Tommy Wiseau is.
You don't? Here's the cliff notes. He wrote, directed, produced AND starred in what's considered to be the single, worst film ever made. Ever. How bad are we talking, you ask?
Take a look at this.
And the worst part is that it's not even a porno.
Anyway, The Room has become a cult hit because of its absolute shitness. Why are we talking The Room, you ask? Because Tommy Wiseau wants to direct the sequel to this summer's ultra-flop, Fantastic Four. Amazing. Yes. We live for stories like this.
Wiseau spoke in a recent interview about his thoughts on the Josh Trank's cinematic failure at the box office. "You know, I told you I saw this Fantastic Four.. it just.. I’m not being critical - let me put it this way, I like it, I did enjoy it number one. Number two, it’s too bad they didn’t call me, that’s all I want to say and I rest my case."
Tommy Wiseau enjoyed Fantastic Four. When the director of The Room says he enjoyed your film, that's definitely a high-point.
"Good response in Europe though, that's my understanding, but it's too bad they didn't call me, that's my point. Maybe if there's a sequel, you know. You know, maybe your article gets me that job, who knows what will happen."
Sweet Mother of Jesus, we would watch the ever-loving crap out of Tommy Wiseau's sequel to Fantastic Four. How amazing would that be?
"IT'S NOT TRUE, I DID NOT HIT SUE STORM, I DID NOT. OH HAI JOHNNY. WHAT'S NEW WITH YOU?"
And then it jump-cuts to Tommy Wiseau, as Mr. Fantastic, having awkward, elbow-y sex with the blonde woman from The Room because she's Sue Storm.
Christ, this film needs to be made.
