Tommy Wiseau Reveals Details About 'The Room' 3D Re-Release

Don't hold your breath. 

Tommy Wiseau, the producer, writer, director, and star of the cult film The Room, is nothing if not a dreamer. Riding high on the success of The Disaster Artist, the James Franco-led movie about the making of Wiseau’s infamously bad and beloved film, Wiseau has all sorts of plans for a re-release of The Room.

Or at least, he’s tweeting some bullshit about converting the movie to 3D.

“Is there any chance you will be releasing the room in 4K quality?” a fan of the movie asked Wiseau on Twitter over the weekend. Wiseau responded and one-upped him, teasing a “5.1,” “4K,” and most-intruguingly, a “3D” re-release.

There are no additional details about when or where the 3D version of The Room will be in theaters, possibly because Wiseau is just having some fun and/or talking out his ass, as he is wont to do.

The 2D to 3D conversion process is difficult, even for a film that doesn’t look like it was shot with a camera made entirely out of vaseline, the way The Room looks. Think about all those times you shelled out an extra 10 bucks to see a movie in 3D instead of 2D. Unless the film was made with 3D in mind, the way Avatar was, the post-conversion process typically looks kind of shitty, even on action-packed blockbusters. The films are dark, fuzzy in places where they shouldn’t be, and the illusion of depth isn’t so much immersive as it’s a gimmick to raise ticket prices. Given Wiseau’s commitment to ~quality~ filmmaking, a 3D version of the room would probably be a disaster, which might be the point.

The Room has already gotten a theatrical re-release, which you can find more details about here, but the 3D version is not in theaters, because it currently only exists in Tommy Wiseau’s fever dreams.

It’s been over a month since Nintendo unleashed Super Smash Bros. Ultimate onto the world, and as more professional players share their early tiers lists it’s quickly become clear which characters are best and which kind of stink. Now, with three new Smash Bros.

Now that we’ve reached Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 7, Week 7, the mysterious Expedition Outposts have once again become the focus of a new challenge.

Week 7 began Thursday morning, and none of the new challenges are all that creative or unique, but one that players definitely need a map for is “Visit all Expedition Outposts.” On the plus side, the new challenge does confirm reports from earlier this season that there are only seven of them.
