Tommy Wiseau interested in directing sequel to Fantastic Four. As some may know, despite the recent interpretation of Marvel’s Fantastic Four being one of the biggest disappointments of the year, 20th Century Fox hasn’t given up on the film property and is still planning to make a follow-up. One director has recently shown interest in taking charge of that project. That director is Tommy Wiseau.
The director of one of the most beloved bad movies of all-time, The Room, revealed in an interview with Milwaukee Magazine that maybe the big reason for Fantastic Four‘s failure is because, get ready for this, he was not involved.
“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. 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.”
For many people, especially for those that have seen The Room and Wiseau’s crazy antics, the idea of him directing the Fantastic Four sequel sounds absolutely insane. Then again, so is the idea of a Fantastic Four sequel. I don’t know why I feel this, but a part of me does want this to actually happen. Say what you will about The Room but Wiseau has become the next generation of Ed Wood, where his passion and enthusiasm for filmmaking are more admirable than the features he has made. Even if it’s highly unlikely that this would ever happen, it does bring up the interesting idea of Wiseau being in-charge of a big-budget motion picture.
The world will soon learn more about the mind of Wiseau, as James Franco is planning to make a movie that’s based on the book of the same name called The Disaster Artist, which chronicles the making of Wiseau’s cult favorite.
