Tommy Wiseau claims that there's a 3D version of The Room coming out. At this point, it's hard to really make this movie's journey any more bizarre. But perhaps converting such a stunningly bad midnight cinema classic into a 3D format could achieve that. In light of the success of James Franco's The Disaster Artist, The Room's profile has never been higher than it is now.
Still, it's not like The Room became a visual spectacle overnight. In fact, it's still spectacularly terrible. But much like it became one of the most improbably re-watchable movies in recent memory, perhaps The Room 3D would be even more fun to watch. Although it's hard to totally trust everything that Wiseau says, the mastermind behind The Room says his movie is getting its own 3D release.
Wiseau revealed his possible new plans for The Room when he responded to a Twitter follower on Friday who asked him if he'd release the film in superior 4K quality. Wiseau says that not only will The Room be released in 4K, it'll also have 5.1 surround sound and be available in a 3D format. Wiseau rarely breaks any kind of hard news about The Room or any other projects, so this tweet would be a departure from the norm.

Wiseau mostly just has playful interactions with fans of The Room, often repurposing some of the movie's most "iconic" quotes. And at the same time, Wiseau remains a massive enigma as a person, even after Greg Sestero's book The Disaster Artist and the subsequent film adaptation. People still don't really know where he came from or how he made his money. It's even a question of whether he actually directed the movie. So it's hard to tell if Wiseau is actually being serious here.
However, if Wiseau is actually just joking about the 3D/4K/5.1 version of The Room, perhaps it's an idea he should look into for future releases. In recent years, The Room has become one of the most unforgettably bad movies ever made and has never been more popular. It's likely that big-enough fans will show their support by picking up a 3D copy, or even going to the theater to see it. Those football scenes and the TV toss would certainly be dazzling.
Even though the Oscars left James Franco out of their nominations, The Disaster Artist still got itself a nod for Best Adapted Screenplay. So perhaps Wiseau will be invited to the 90th Academy Awards and get a chance to say what he couldn't say at the Golden Globes. If he could get onto one of the highest-rated telecasts of the year, he could draw attention to The Room like never before - and possibly get in a shameless plug for that 3D edition.
