Fifteen years after the release of “The Room” — the best worst movie ever made — Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero have been making the awards circuit rounds on the coattails of James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist.”
With all that good will in store, they’re seizing the opportunity in an attempt to prove they can truly act.
Wiseau and Sestero are reuniting for the first time since “The Room” in a new film, “Best F(r)iends,” which debuted its trailer on Friday. The noir thriller directed by Justin MacGregor and written by Sestero is “inspired by true events” and will be presented in two parts.
“Trust me, friendship before money,” Wiseau says to Sestero in the trailer before breaking into an ATM.
Here’s the synopsis for the story that depicts the themes of “greed, hatred and jealousy,” as Wiseau puts it in the trailer:
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.
“Volume 1” of “Best F(r)iends” will be presented on March 30 and April 2 in 600 select theaters nationwide, followed by “Volume 2” on June 1 and 4.
