'Room' actor Greg Sestero to write memoir about making the 'Citizen Kane of bad movies'


One of the worst films ever made has now inspired a spin-off book. No, they still haven’t gotten around to publishing a novelization of From Justin to Kelly. (Oh, how much longer must we wait???) But actor Greg Sestero has just signed a deal with Simon & Schuster to detail his involvement in the notorious 2003 film-fiasco, The Room. Entitled Locked Inside ‘The Room,’ the tome will be co-penned by journalist Tom Bissell and is set for publication in 2013.

According to the official announcement, the book “will describe the movie’s tumultuous production, reveal the film’s myriad of mysteries, and provide a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of the film’s enigmatic creator, Tommy Wiseau.” Sestero himself dropped a note to EW confirming that the book will indeed offer “the only intimate look” at the mercurial Wiseau. He also promised that Locked Inside ‘The Room’ will be “fraught and revealing,” which, as Room fans will know, is also a pretty decent description of the movie’s numerous, retina-searing sex scenes.

You can check out the trailer for The Room below.

        My bad, by Gupta’s mom I meant my mom. To be absolutely clear, Gene’s mom loves to swallow.

      Hahahaha. So excited to be “first” that your fingers danced a bit too recklessly across the keyboard, eh, Gupta?

    • cekma

      Oh hi first!

  • Voodoo

    Oh hi, Mark!

  • Mr. Holloway

    So it seems that not even Mark could keep his stupid comments in his pocket.

    I actually have not seen THE ROOM. I did see the Nostalgia Critic review, and the movie looks horrid. Greg starred in RETRO PUPPET MASTER, which is better IMO. I hope Full Moon can afford to bring Greg back for another prequel. There is too much story left to tell.

      If you haven’t seen The Room, SEE IT*. And then see it again.

      * – it’s a good idea to be drunk when yous ee it for the first time.

  • Rhys

    You’re tearing me apart, Lisa! …Oh, hi Mark.

  • Mr. Sprayberry

    It seems to me like you’re a expert, Greg!

    3 favorite lines from that movie;
    1)”If i was a burgler, you’d be my best friend”
    2) “I did not hit her. It’s not true. It’s bulls**t. I did not…oh, hi Mark.”
    3) “You must be kidding…underwear…i got the picture.”
    Of course all the popular ones but those always kill me.

    Great article. I caní»t wait to hear more about your research tool. If it is as good as your other products, then you will have another winner. Your article pretty much summed up what I have been seeing too. Great to see some hard data.
