The Room may not have garnered all the awards and critical acclaim that James Franco’s The Disaster Artist did, but there’s only one real disaster artist, and that’s Tommy Wiseau – which he proves by reenacting iconic scenes from popular disaster movies in hilarious fashion.
Wiseau made The Room because he was having trouble getting work as an actor. But following The Room‘s cult success, he found himself picking up more and more cameos in comedic projects. Thanks to Franco’s making-of homage to Wiseau’s cult film, and a gracious but involuntarily silent inclusion in Franco’s Golden Globe speech, the actor/director has become more popular than ever. Wiseau has become quite active in promoting Franco’s film, including this goofy plug for The Disaster Artist‘s DVD release.
Wiseau stopped by Screen Junkies to promote the DVD launch and took the time to insert himself into famous disaster movie scenes to hilarious results. Wiseau pesters Bill Harding (Bill Paxton) to drive faster as he tries to outmaneuver a deadly cyclone and flying cows in 1996’s Twister. He goes on a rambling rant as he performs a presidential speech about colonizing Mars and not believing in the existence of dinosaurs in 1998’s Deep Impact. Check out the video above to see Wiseau bring four dangerous scenes from some of Hollywood’s biggest films to life like only he can.
Wiseau is far from finished with his notoriously bad movie, the filmmaker has big plans for his sleeper hit. He recently revealed to Screen Rant his plans to film an exact, shot-for-shot remake of The Room in 3D. He admitted that he did have the footage to recreate the movie in 3D, but that it would actually be easier to simply reshoot the film. Whether Wiseau ultimately decides to convert the existing footage to 3D or start from scratch, he promises that he will keep the updated version of the movie as true to the film, and all its imperfections, as possible.
Along with this ambitious goal, Wiseau is hoping to bring The Room to Broadway. Again, speaking exclusively to Screen Rant, Wiseau promised his stage adaptation would run on Broadway proper, not Off-Broadway. Wiseau is quite busy however with acting, producing, writing, and directing credits on two projects set to debut later in the year. He’s also campaigning pretty hard for the role of the Joker in Todd Phillips’ planned film. So, these projects related to The Room may be put on the backburner for a while.
The Disaster Artist will be available on DVD March 13, 2018.
