Following the release of the Disaster Artist, camp cult classic The Room has been remade with Bob Odenkirk taking on Tommy Wiseau‘s iconic Johnny character. When fans first caught word of the remake, many did not believe that the project was real. Odenkirk quickly dispelled those thoughts, taking to Twitter to confirm his part, “This is real. This is true. And let me tell you, I tried my best to SELL every line, as honestly as I could…and I had a BLAST.”
Reports are now noting that the project is being made with the involvement of the organization Acting for a Cause, with proceeds going to the AIDS research charity amfAR. Although not much more is known about the remake of The Room, we do know that Acting for a Cause founder Brando Crawford is directing and producing the full-length film. We are also hearing word of a release sometime this spring.

I am very excited for the feature-length THE ROOM remake (Shot mostly on greenscreen) in which the Tommy Wiseau role is taken over by Bob Odenkirk – and it’s not played as a joke. pic.twitter.com/qtenykdUKh
