Tommy Wiseau, the director behind The Room, often regarded as one of the worst films ever made, has a new project on the horizon. 

According to Film Futter (via Bloody Disgusting), Wiseau announced his new film will be called Big Shark at a screening of The Room at London’s Prince Charles Cinema, where he added that the film would be set in New Orleans, a city that he says means a great deal to him. 

A teaser shown to audiences revealed that Wiseau will play a character named Patrick, with The Room star Greg Sestero also featured in the role of Georgie. Sestero also explained that the film is about three firefighters who team up to save the world. 

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

From 15p €0.18 $0.18 USD 0.27 a day, more exclusives, analysis and extras.

Filming for the project will reportedly take place sometime this year, with the teaser shown to audiences functioning only as a pitch for financiers. 

It’s far from the only project Wiseau has worked on post-The Room. He also directed the 2004 documentary Homeless in America, created the 2015 sitcom The Neighbors, and most recently starred alongside Sestero in the thriller Best F(r)iends Volume One and Volume Two, which Sestero co-wrote. 

Sestero also documented his experiences working with Wiseau in the book The Disaster Artist, which was adapted into a 2017 film directed by and starring James Franco.
