The Room‘s Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero have reunited on a new film, Best F(r)iends.
The pair’s cult film was released in 2003 and has been called the “best worst movie of all time”. Last year, the making of the movie became the subject of James Franco‘s Golden Globe-nominated hit The Disaster Artist.
Best F(r)iends marks the first time the friends have worked together on their own project since The Room. Sestero wrote and produced the film, while it was directed by Justin MacGregor. Wiseau plays the character of mortician Harvey Lewis, and Sestero is “drifter” Jon Kortina.
Set in Los Angeles, the thriller follows the two as they go into business together. Greed, hatred and jealousy threaten things though, and the pair embark on a journey across the Southwest, where, according to a synopsis, they learn “valuable lessons about friendship and loyalty”. Watch the trailer above.
The film is based on a road trip Sestero and Wiseau took together in April 2003. In a statement published in Newsweek, Wiseau said: “I challenge myself as an actor, and I think audiences will get a nice surprise. After watching Best F(r)iends, your mind will find paradise.”
There is currently no UK release date for the movie, however it will be released in two parts in the US. ‘Volume 1’ will be shown on March 30 and April 2, while the second volume will follow on June 1 and 4.
Earlier this year, Wiseau suggested he intended to re-release The Room in 3D. The filmmaker made the declaration on his Twitter account in January after being asked by one of his followers if The Room would ever be released in 4K.
