Tommy Wiseau, the man that wrote, directed, and starred in the quintessential "so-bad-it's-good" movie 2003's The Room, is expressing interest in directing the sequel to Josh Trank's "so-bad-it's-bad" movie The Fantastic Four.
"You know, I told you I saw this Fantastic Four….it just….I’m not being critical- let me put it this way, I like it, I did enjoy it number one," Wiseau told Milwaukee Magazine. "Number two, it’s too bad they didn’t call me, that’s all I want to say and I rest my case. (laughs) That’s all I can tell you. (laughs) Good response in Europe though, that’s my understanding, but it’s too bad they didn’t call me, that’s my point. Maybe if there’s a sequel, you know. You know, maybe your article gets me that job, who knows what will happen."
According to several trades, 20th Century Fox still hasn't given up hope on a Fant-4-Stic sequel -- scheduled for June 9, 2017 -- even though the studio will take a loss of $80M-$100M on the 2015 film. YOU'RE TEARING ME APART, FOX!
