‘Room’ icons Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero reunite in new film ‘Best F(r)iends’

BTW

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. 

“After watching Best F(r)iends, your mind will find paradise,” Wiseau told THR

The Room was initially released in 2003, and followed a bizarre love triangle that includes Wiseau’s Johnny and Sestero’s Mark. Their awkward football-throwing scenes became memes. 

As the film developed a midnight-movie following, a follow-up to the film was teased; Wiseau debuted an equally bizarre sitcom in 2014, but it wasn’t officially a sequel. 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.
