Wiseau would “absolutely” direct a movie based on a game

Thursday, 22nd September 2011 18:45 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Tommy Wiseau, he which wrote, produced, directed and starred in the cult classic film The Room, has said he would have no problem whatsoever with directing a movie based on a video game.

Speaking with D’toid in its latest podcast, Wiseau said there are plenty of technical and artistic properties to games which could transfer well onto the silver screen.

“Sure, this is the thing, you have to be open-minded,” he said. “Entertainment’s changing, constantly. As you guys know … from 35mm, to HD, to ‘Super-HD’ [as] I’m calling it right now. Yes, absolutely you can create a movie based on a game, based on the animation, I mean you can go [to] infinity.

“You have to be open-minded. Absolutely, the answer’s yes, sure.”

Wiseau is of the belief that games are “not just violence,” and provide the player with “excitement” to the human brain – he studies psychology as a hobby you know – and also believes in the educational value of games, going so far to say: “everyone should play a game.”

    “As you guys know … from 35mm, to HD, to ‘Super-HD’ [as] I’m calling it right now.”

    That coming from the guy who shot a film in both HD and 35mm because that shit just confused him.

    @1 – :D I know. That cracked me up as well when I read that interview.

    And is it just me, or does he look like a long-lost brother to Gene Simmons? Maybe it’s the hair…

    @2: Definitely the hair.

    Wonder what he’s doing right now. I know there is the new “Tommy Wi-Show” coming, but that’s about it. I’d love to see another Gem like The Room. Birdemic did the trick for now, but … ugh, you just know the director wasn’t as passionate and bizarre as Tommy.

    I think that’s the most appealing part about the Room. How fucking bizarre that movie was.
