Bob Odenkirk to Play Tommy Wiseau’s Role in The Room Greenscreen Remake
“I am very excited for the feature-length THE ROOM remake (Shot mostly on greenscreen) in which the Tommy Wiseau role is taken over by Bob Odenkirk — and it’s not played as a joke,” announced podcaster Justin Decloux on Twitter earlier this week.
The project is being made with the involvement of the organization Acting for a Cause and it will benefit the AIDS research charity amfAR. Not much else is confirmed about The Room remake except for a series of social media posts from people involved with the movie.
It appears Acting for a Cause founder Brando Crawford is directing and producing the film, with actor Cameron Kasky revealing on Reddit that it’s a “full fucking movie.” One of the other confirmed actors involved is Bella Heathcote (Fifty Shades Darker). There’s no release date as of yet, but Acting for a Cause’s Jarad Schwartz previously teased it would be “coming this spring.”
