Best F(r)iends Trailer

In 2003, "The Room" became known as "The Citizen Kane of bad movies," a movie that actually lived up to its notorious hype. A movie so bad that its actually hard NOT to watch. The movie gained a cult following, it shows up at midnight screenings, and those screenings are sold out. There was even a movie made last year about the making of the film. For over a decade though, Tommy Wiseau hasn't been in another movie. He's done some things on YouTube. He's appeared on some shows and web series'. But as far as movies go, he's been MIA. He hasn't starred, written or directed a new movie in fifteen years.

Tommy Wiseau co-starred in "The Room" with Greg Sestero, who went on to write the autobiographical book that was adapted into "The Disaster Artist" last year. Now in 2018, he is reuniting with Tommy for a new movie. This time, Greg Sestero has written and produced this new film, being directed by Justin MacGregor. Tommy Wiseau will be co-starring with Sestero on this new film. It's called "Best F(r)iends," and I guess its going to be a crime-dramatic comedy.

Here's the official synopsis:

When a drifter (Greg Sestero) is taken in by a peculiar mortician (Tommy Wiseau), the two hatch an underground enterprise off the back of the mortician's old habits. But greed, hatred, and jealousy soon come in turn, and their efforts unravel, causing the drifter to run off with the spoils and leaving the mortician adrift. An expedition across the South West introduces wild and crazy characters through a series of twisted and dark foibles as both men learn a valuable lesson about friendship and loyalty.”

And here's a trailer:

Well, I will say I like that barely any storyline has been given away in the trailer, so at least they allowed it to be edited properly. It should be interesting that they've followed in the footsteps of "Kill Bill" and will be presenting this story in two volumes, I hope they have enough good story to tell. I have no idea how good of a writer Sestero is, but I doubt this will be anything like "The Room." At least from a screenwriting perspective. Maybe. Perhaps Sestero sucks too, we'll have to wait and see. It doesn't look like Wiseau is capable of range, from his voice to his mannerisms to the wallet chain in his pants, he looks like he's playing a version of Johnny. That may not be a bad thing though, if this is intended to be a comedy, it will work wonders.

Keep an eye out for this one people, apparently its being released through Fathom Events starting on March 30th.
