Fans of the movie The Room! Greg Sestero (aka Mark) has written a book about how everyone's favorite terrible movie was made. It's available for pre-order now. I just thought you all should know.
My Life Inside The Room
The highly anticipated book behind the making of The Room, Hollywood's most "unique" phenomenon.
From the actor who lived through it all and an award-winning narrative nonfiction writer, comes the inspiring and laugh-out-loud funny story of a mysteriously wealthy social misfit named Tommy Wiseau, who got past every road block in the Hollywood system to achieve success on his own terms—the making of The Room, “the Citizen Kane of bad movies” (Entertainment Weekly).
The Room made its disastrous debut in Los Angeles in 2003. The $6 million film—starring and financed, written, and directed by Wiseau—earned $1,800 at the box office and closed after two weeks. Now in its tenth anniversary year, The Room is an international phenomenon to rival The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Thousands of fans wait in line for hours to attend screenings complete with costumes, audience rituals, merchandising, and thousands of plastic spoons.
Readers need not have seen The Room to appreciate its costar Greg Sestero’s account of how Tommy Wiseau defied every law of artistry, business, and interpersonal relationships to achieve the dream only he could love. The Disaster Artist is a surprisingly inspiring tour de force that reads like a page-turning novel, an open-hearted portrait of an enigmatic man who will capture your heart.
