The Room's Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero have finally reunited for a new film: Best F(r)iends

The Hollywood Reporter has the trailer, which finds Sestero and Wiseau on a road trip and embroiled in some high-stakes shenanigans involving a hearse, funeral home, and gold teeth. Sestero reportedly wrote the story after an actual road trip with Wiseau in 2003.

At this point, do we really want a sequel to The Room? (Never fear: James Franco is making a movie about the making of The Room.) 

Is the name a reference to the Werner Herzog-Klaus Kinski doc My Best Fiend? Hopefully.
