Oh, hi best news ever!
Tommy Wiseau, director, writer, producer and star of the cult film "The Room" announced plans to release the the 2003 masterpiece in 3-D at the end of 2011 or in 2012. He tells Entertainment Weekly, "The process is very detail-oriented, but we want to do it because I'm obsessed about 3-D right now, if you ask me." Because that makes sense. Gotta love Wiseau.
Don't fret "Room" fans, Wiseau has no plans to alter the film, so yes, you will still be seeing his bottom in the random and totally awkward sex scenes. Only this time in 3-D! "My bottom will have to be in 3-D because I'm not changing anything. So you'll be very close." Do with that information what you will.
Devotees can also expect a Blu-ray version of the movie just in time for Christmas 2011. "I have hundreds of emails from people saying, 'We want to see the behind-the-scenes footage. »
"'The process is very detail-oriented,' said the actor-writer-director. 'But we want to do it because I'm obsessed about 3-D right now, if you ask me...My bottom will have to be in 3-D because I'm not changing anything,' he explained. 'So you'll be very close.'"
Oh good. "Room"-ies know that Wiseau shot his film with two different cameras simultaneously: a 35mm film camera and an HD video camera. Why? The man himself explains in this interview which was originally found on "The Room" DVD. His explanation begins four minutes and twenty-seven seconds into this clip:

It's not bad enough to know that Tommy Wiseau's "The Room" is real, he plans to beat it in us some more with a 3-D version of the arguably worst film in existence. Want to dump some more lemon juice into the open wound? Wiseau wants to not only drown us in 3-D of ridiculously long and uncomfortable sex scenes, but you can watch it in the comfort of your own home on Blu-ray as well."We want a Blu-ray release before Christmas 2011," he said. "I have hundreds of e-mails from people saying, 'We want to see the behind-the-scenes footage.' I say, 'Yes you can, as soon as we release the Blu-ray.'"Because no gift says "Merry Christmas" than a copy of "The Room" nestled under your poor Christmas tree. Regardless of how much of an abomination "The Room" is, there's still a strong following that got »
Tommy Wiseau's "The Room," which many believe is the worst movie ever made, is a guilty pleasure for Paul Rudd, David Wain Jonah Hill, and thousands of fans. And now, Wiseau has announcing his big plans for the film. The first step is to convert it to 3D and have it in theaters by the end of 2011 or 2012. "We want to do it because I'm obsessed about 3-D right now," he said. "My bottom will have to be in 3-D, because I'm not changing anything." Wiseau also wants to release a Blu-ray version of his movie. "We want a Blu-ray release before Christmas 2011," he explained. "I have hundreds of emails from people saying, 'We want to see the behind-the-scenes footage'." In addition to working on "The Room," Wiseau is also developing "The Neighbors" sitcom, a feature film about the economy and a clothing line. "I'll be designing underwear, as well as jackets, »
I don’t know if this is good news, bad news, or some third kind of news that there isn’t a word for, but it is certainly something to contemplate. Tommy Wiseau told Entertainment Weekly that he is going to re-release his cult film “The Room” in 3D. For those of you unfamiliar with “The Room”, it is essentially Wiseau’s ego splashed across the screen for 99 painful minutes. He is the writer, director, producer, and, even though he looks slightly undead, the star of the film. Since it’s release in 2003, the film has garnered a great deal of notoriety at late-night shows where crowds dress up like their favorite characters and hurl plastic spoons at the screen, and Paul Rudd, Alec Baldwin, and Jonah Hill amongst it’s celebrity fans. “The Room” also famously features close up footage of Wiseau’s ass (three times), which appears marbled, »

Tommy Wiseau is really planning to give something back to his audience. His film The Room is (in)famous among fans for being, among many other things, the screening where you can throw a rain of plastic spoons at the screen. Now, if Wiseau has his way, the film will be able to throw something back, as he's planning a 3D remaster for late 2011 or early 2012. EW  talked to Tommy Wiseau, but sadly the magazine doesn't include any quotes that suggests that they asked about using both the film and video footage supposedly shot as a basis for the 3D conversion. (Legends says Wiseau shot The Room with film and video cameras running side by side.) We'll have to wait for the blu-ray for that; the director says that when the Blu-ray version his before Christmas 2011, it will contain a bunch of behind the scenes footage. What Wiseau does say »

This article is best read while listening to one of the songs from the movie’s many love scenes.
There’s a surprising number of people who have yet to revel in the sprawling atrociousness of Tommy Wiseau’s anti-film The Room. Released in 2003 to virtually no attention but building up a cult following over the years on home video and at midnight screenings-many of which are hosted by the filmmaker himself-and has become a true phenomenon. If you haven’t seen it before, and you really should, then there’s just another reason to check it out.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, the writer and director of ambiguous origin said that we can expect to see a 3D re-release either at the end of 2011 or sometime during 2012. He was quoted as saying that the “process is very detail-oriented. But we want to do it because I’m obsessed about 3-D right now, »

Tommy Wiseau has told EW he will theatrically release a 3-D version of his cult movie The Room, either at the end of 2011 or in 2012. “The process is very detail-oriented,” said the actor-writer-director. “But we want to do it because I’m obsessed about 3-D right now, if you ask me.”
The famously mysterious filmmaker has no plans to alter the film for the 3-D version which means the ever-growing army of Room devotees can look forward to the sight of Wiseau’s derriere in three dimensions during the film’s lengthy sex scenes. “My bottom will have to be »

What does it take to be called the "Citizen Kane of bad movies"?
A few weeks back, after years of procrastination, I finally saw Tommy Wiseau's now-classic midnight movie 'The Room.' At this point, you have either never heard of it or have seen the film more than 20 times. To bring those in the former category up to speed, in 2002, Wiseau was an aspiring filmmaker whose bank account far exceeded his filmmaking ability. But he was persistent: writing, directing, producing and starring in his debut feature 'The Room.'
Ostensibly a love triangle drama between Johnny (Wiseau), his girlfriend Lisa (Juliette Danielle) and his best friend Mark (Greg Sestero), 'The Room' is a film school study in how not to make a movie. Subplots are brought up and never referred to again. Seemingly important characters are either never introduced or disappear with no explanation. »

Within the domain of cult cinema lies a genre known as “so-bad-they're-good.” The film that is deemed as one of the greatest of this genre is "The Room," which recently received Rocky Horror Picture Show status as it made numerous midnight screenings across the U.S. and abroad. Writer, producer, director and lead actor Tommy Wiseau spent six million dollars making what he refers to as “a film with the passion of Tennessee Williams” but in reality is wrought with unbelievably bad acting, countless plot holes, pointless dialogue and some CGI rooftop scenes for good measure. To up the ante a bit, Wiseau also added several sex scenes that play out like bad nineties cable porn and recycles the footage in four different scenes. All of this adds up to one »

It is no wonder that Nashville entrepreneur Julius Lewis wrote more than just the checks for N-Secure. You know your seeing a film written by a guy who simply wants to make a movie where the main character talks to themselves, revealing what their face should. Let’s call this a “duh” moment that a test screening might have stopped. This isn’t the only thing wrong with N-Secure, I’m convinced a feature film instantly doomed when it opens with a montage of “happy couple” going out, living and loving. If you a regional film funded by non-professionals who decide to make a film because you like movies – you know further doom is around the corner when the camera lingers on names of local brands and restaurants for too long.
This filmmaking probably exists in every city lurking in the shadows of film artists in the avant-garde. Buffalo is »

Everything has been leading to this. Or so you'd think. Let's be frank, if we've learnt anything from our series of articles revisiting the Saw series over the last week, it's that the franchise is so wrapped up in retcons, flashbacks and time-bending shenanigans that you couldn't really be surprised if this one had turned out to take place in 2003, before even that very first film back in 2004.
At the very least, I assure you that we're not looking at a prequel. This is very much a straight continuation from the end of Saw VI, and some time during the last year, we find Jigsaw's ex, Jill Tuck, has lost a considerable amount of badass points from having vengefully trapped Jigsaw's bungling successor, »
Although the holiday season means time off work for most other industries in the U.S., it means it's awards season for the film business, which in turn necessitates plenty of tributes and accolades to be presented on the East and West Coasts at your local repertory theater in advance of the Oscars where movie stars can be seen and Q & As are conducted. Yet in New York and Los Angeles, there will be a wealth of other options as neighborhood theaters flood their screens with contemporary cinema from other parts of the world, classic movies in their full bigscreen glory, and certain-to-be-fun nods to the holidays, whether it's Halloween or Christmas. If you live in one of these areas or see fit to travel, these are the events worth the trouble over the next few months.

It's a good day for fans of playing football in tuxedos. Tommy Wiseau, the writer/director/star of the so-bad-it's-transcendantly-funny cult hit "The Room", returns with his new project, a 12-minute horror-comedy short called"The House That Drips Blood on Alex." Written by Brock Laborde and directed by and starring Wiseau, it's about (in the filmmaker's own words from the film) "a man much like myself. A man who is myself, who moves into a house. A very old house. Older than times itself, perhaps. It's not ordinary house, no! There is something very different about this house!" Oh, Tommy. Don't ever change.
If you're wondering if Wiseau is now in on the joke, which therefore negates the joke of marveling at his craziness, the answers are yes and surprisingly no. Certainly Wiseau now realizes people enjoy watching him act strange -- how else to explain his pointless yet mesmerizing »

This is Tommy Wiseau’s sophomore effort after the The Room. Actually, junior effort? Didn’t he do a sitcom in the manner of The Office? I think he did. Probably also some other sh*t I’m not aware of too. I don’t care. But just in time for Halloween, here we have his short film, The House That Drips Blood On Alex. It’s about 13 minutes long (eek!) so, in addition to so many other things you should be forewarned of, be forewarned of that. The House That Drips Blood On Alex Tags: Atom.com,Atom Originals,Atom Blog,Upload Videos I think he’s playing a stoner? That’s his comedy choice? “I don’t want to talk about it.” Makes a nice cameo. Also, I have that hat that he wears in the beginning. Also, everything is stupid. And that’s about all I have to say about that. »

And obviously, that’s not the strangest thing about Tommy Wiseau. Since you’re reading Film School Rejects, we can assume a few things. Primarily, you’re really attractive and have lots of friends, and less important, you’re well versed in movie news, no matter how weird it is. In that case, this means you probably already know of Tommy Wiseau, someone who has managed to be called a master of all crafts (acting, directing, and writing) based solely on the drama dark comedy satire movie, The Room. If you haven’t heard of it, take a moment to YouTube it. I’ll wait. You’re back? Excellent. You’ve now had a taste of Tommy Wiseau and hopefully you’re hungry for more. Combine that hunger with a little bit of insomnia and you can watch Wiseau get blood dripped all over him as he runs acting train all over you face tonight on Comedy Central »

The Room is different from other bad movies. Anybody who has seen it knows this. Its success is so potent, and the film is so rewatchable and addictive because it resides in an exclusive liminal space between the token wonderfully bad genre movies (e.g., Plan 9, Hobgolbins, Troll 2, and everything in between) and infuriatingly incompetent beyond-amateur crap like Manos: The Hands of Fate or Birdemic. The Room is so incredibly unique in part because, at a $6 million investment from the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau that covered everything from production to advertising, this is bad filmmaking on a relatively “large” scale. With The Room, Wiseau found himself in the impossible position of being able to – as the film’s sole source of funding – exercise total creative control while simultaneously displaying unwieldy incompetence regarding the entire filmmaking process. I don’t mean to use such emphatic rhetoric lightly, for as Tom Bissell appropriately puts in his analysis of »

Chicago – Ever since Tommy Wiseau declared that his masterpiece of ineptitude, “The Room,” was “filmed with the passion of Tennessee Williams,” I’ve become considerably more weary of any film that makes such an inflated claim. Of course, “The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond” has a better defense, since it’s actually the adaptation of a long-forgotten work from the legendary playwright.
Watching the film is a curious experience, suggesting how a mediocre revival of a classic play would look on Broadway, with big-name stars straining to make archaic dialogue sound fresh and naturalistic. Actor-turned-director Jodie Markell respects her source material to such a degree that she seems blind to its inherent shortcomings. The play is hardly worth comparing to an essential masterwork like “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” though it’s easy to imagine Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman in the lead roles, which are colorless amalgams of »
