'The Room's Tommy Wiseau To Star In & Direct Shark-Attack Film ‘Big Shark’

Postby Blue Jackets » Wed Feb 06, 2019 7:25 am

Wiseau’s new movie as director and star will be Big Shark about a shark terrorizing New Orleans,” Mathias explained. “It was announced with a teaser before the Q&A started.”

The site describes, “The teaser starts off with Patrick, played by Tommy Wiseau, who introduces his friends Tim (Isaiah LaBorde) and Georgie (Greg Sestero) to two women at a restaurant. In the next scene one of the women calls Sestero’s character a jerk and both slap him. His buddies laugh at him and he laughs it off. In the following scene they are walking back to their car when they see water at their feet running through the streets. After a cut they are already up to their hips in the water and in the background a large badly animated shark consumes its victim. After that the shark goes for the trio and they try to run away. The title card comes on, after which the shot of the CG shark swimming towards the camera and snapping is repeated multiple times.”

Mathias adds, “According to the article, it was the first time the teaser has been publicly shown. Wiseau explained during the Q&A that the film is set in New Orleans and he was inspired by his time there to give something back to the city. So he decided to make Big Shark and set it there. Sestero added that the film is about three firefighters trying to save the world (presumably from a big shark). It also sounds like the film hasn’t been shot yet and that was a promotional teaser, possibly to find financing and drum up early hype. It seems like everything is in place, though. The plan is to shoot the film this year and premiere it at the Prince Charles Cinema this September already.”

I'm scared this will be bad on purpose and then end up just being bad

Yeah, this will be awful. And it won't be "so awful it's popular" like The Room, you can't pull that off more than once.
