The Room’s Tommy Wiseau would like to make a Star Wars movie

Notoriously bad actor-director Tommy Wiseau, who rose to fame in cult ‘so bad, it’s good’ movie The Room, has said he would like to make a Star Wars film.

The mysterious filmmaker told his Twitter followers he would “absolutely” like to direct a Star Wars movie, but added he would “prefer to act” in one if given the opportunity.

He then issued a direct offer to Lucasfilm and producer Kathleen Kennedy to contact him, in the sort of astounding display of self-confidence that is typical of Tommy Wiseau.

Yes! Absolutely! but I am very busy, so I would prefer to act.#StarWars can contact me -> https://t.co/tQUEyFfJOW https://t.co/96aoGEIyo9

Tommy Wiseau (@TommyWiseau) December 5, 2017

Wiseau released The Room in 2003, having spent six million dollars of his own money to make the movie, which was conceived as a weighty drama at the level of Tennessee Williams.

James Franco is Tommy Wiseau in new trailer for The Disaster Artist

Ahead of its release next month, a new trailer has arrived online for writer-director James Franco’s upcoming biographical comedy drama The Disaster Artist focusing on Franco’s role as Tommy Wiseau, director of The Room. Check it out here…

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.

The first lady, who received backlash after sporting stilettos as she traveled to Texas to observe Hurricane Harvey relief efforts and again to meet with the storm’s victims, wore another pair of chigh heels as she boarded the Marine One at the White House on Tuesday. She and President Donald Trump were heading to Puerto Rico to assess the damage done by Hurricane Maria.

Melania, 47, defied critics in her navy-hued shoes, which matched her turtleneck sweater and cropped trousers.

‘Flatliners’ is All Too Accurate: Why Remakes Are Some of the Riskiest Movies to Make
This weekend brings the remake of “Flatliners,” Joel Schumacher’s 1990 thriller that starred Julia Roberts. Reviews are universally terrible for this retread of good-looking med-school students who put life-after-death on repeat, but it was a nail-biter for studio Sony Pictures from the outset: They took the risk of making an honest-to-god remake.

A remake sounds like the safest bet there is; isn’t original, untested IP the thing that studios fear most? However, in this market a true remake is what passes for a gamble. They’ve become a box-office rarity.

While none of this year’s top-grossing films are originals, there are very few genuine remakes. Yes, the year’s biggest movie, “Beauty and the Beast,” is a direct remake of the 1991 classic — but it went from animated to live action. (It was not a remake of the multiple live-action films and TV shows that preceded it, which stretch

‘The Disaster Artist’ Trailer is Something You Never Thought You Needed

The Franco brothers (James and Dave) are finally working together in a film and this one is an interesting one. The Disaster Artist is a biography “dramedy” based on the true story of The Room filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and about the making of the questionable film. This all may sound confusing or interesting but hopefully this new trailer (posted below) will help you out with coming to a conclusion.

Here is a side by side of Franco and Wiseau.

Ironically enough, James Franco wrote, directed and starred in the film much like Tommy Wiseau did with The Room.

James Corden Regrets Kissing Sean Spicer at Emmys: ‘I’m Disappointed’

James Corden Regrets Kissing Sean Spicer at Emmys: ‘I’m Disappointed’
To say that some viewers were not pleased with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s cameo on the Emmys Sunday evening would be an understatement. To make matters worse, a photo posted to Variety‘s Instagram account caught late night host James Corden on camera giving Spicer a peck on the cheek at the awards show, which elicited further blowback.

Corden, however, addressed the incident in his opening monologue on “The Late Late Show” Monday night, stating that he was “disappointed” in himself.

After cracking a few Donald Trump jokes, Corden went on to lambast himself. “According to some reports at the after-party, Spicer was the most popular guy in the room,” he began. “And I just wanna say, I think people are forgetting this man lied to the American people and should not be embraced. These Hollywood phonies kissing up to Spicer are disgusting, I mean, who did this, who

Mptf Hosts Star-Studded 11th Annual Evening Before Party

Television’s biggest night took place in Century City, CA Saturday, September 16th, where the entertainment industry came together for the 11th annual “Evening Before” party, benefitting Mptf (Motion Picture & Television Fund).

The television industry, from Emmy presenters and nominees, to other TV industry members, helped raise funds to support their industry colleagues and friends who benefit from Mptf’s charitable programs and services such as financial assistance, crisis counseling, care giving support and of course the legendary retirement facility in Woodland Hills that is “home” to television and film veterans alike.

“The health and social service needs of our community continue to grow, especially during these last few years. The cost of delivering much-needed care can be overwhelming to Mptf’s resources, which makes events like the Evening Before more important now than ever,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg,

Sean Spicer’s Emmy Appearance: Seth Rogen, Jenny Slate, and More Slam Former Press Secretary’s Cameo
Stephen Colbert caused controversy last night at the 69th Annual Emmy Awards by bringing former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer out on stage. Award shows are known to stir the pot, whether intentionally or not, but some viewers felt the appearance was far from the right move.

The whole bit felt ironic after Colbert’s grand opening sequence centered around using TV to escape the horrors of the current political climate. Despite a touching sentiment featuring the stars of “The Americans” singing “Even treason’s better on TV” and a cameo by Chance The Rapper, Spicer undid any lasting shmaltz.

The choice to humanize Sean Spicer after he had worked to publicly defend Donald Trump and his administration struck some audiences as distasteful. Celebrities took to their Twitter platform after the fact and voiced their strong opinions — and some couldn’t even be contained in 140 characters.

I'm not ready to laugh "with" Sean Spicer.

Zach Braff Is ‘#Blessed’ to Be ‘Face of Russian Boner Problems’
Zach Braff’s “Scrubs” character is apparently being used to sell a treatment for “boner problems” in Russia. The actor tweeted an image on Tuesday of a Russian ad featuring a photo of himself from the bygone NBC medical comedy. Freelance reporter Diana Bruk translated some of the text, revealing that Braff’s face is being used to promote a product that “reinstates masculine strength.” “I am the face of Russian boner problems,” Braff replied. “#blessed.” Also Read: 'SNL': Zach Braff Campaigns to Play Stephen Miller Earlier in the week, Braff shared a different advertisement using his face to offer tech support.

BoJack Horseman Season 4 Episode 7 Review – ‘Underground’

Liam Hoofe reviews the seventh episode of BoJack Horseman season 4…

Diane’s story has, thus far this season, taken something of a backseat. Her relationship with Mr. Peanutbutter is quite clearly strained, and she had the little subplot about guns, but in terms of character development, she has seen very little so far.

This all changes in episode 7, the season’s bottle episode, when during a campaign party, Mr. Peanutbutter’s house sinks into the ground as a result of all the fracking, leaving him and his guests stranded in a pit. Think last year’s election meets Lord of the Flies, and you’re someway to imagining the content of this episode.

Diane, who has spent most of the season struggling with her relationship with her husband, is also forced to reacquaint herself with BoJack for the first time this season, and their encounter is clearly going to have

Full Trailer drops for “The Disaster Artist”

Yesterday morning, a gift from the movie gods was bestowed upon us all. Hot off of the film’s highly praised reception at the Toronto International Film Festival, a Full Trailer was released for The Disaster Artist. As I said back when the Teaser debuted, among modern day cult films, The Room stands tall. Not since The Rocky Horror Picture Show has a midnight movie captured audience adoration like Tommy Wiseau’s “masterpiece”. Even in Hollywood, it’s an iconic picture. As such, it was never a huge shock that a look at its inception was going to receive the cinematic treatment, especially after an acclaimed book about its making hit shelves. What’s surprising is that A-list talent has surrounded it from top to bottom, including A24 distributing. The Disaster Artist made waves at SXSW before Tiff, and now will continue to build buzz in advance of its December release date.
