Oh Hi: Did Tommy Wiseau Really Direct ‘The Room’?
Schklair: “Umm…you want me to direct your project?”
Wiseau: “No I am director!”
Schklair: “Yeah, you’re the director, whatever. But you want me to direct your movie for you?”
Wiseau: “Yes, please.”
An anonymous actor who declined to be named (I'm guessing it was Wiseau, just to mess with us), had this corroborating report to offer:
"The script supervisor ended up sort of directing the movie. Tommy was so busy being an actor that this other guy directed the whole thing."
Wiseau of course is denying everything in that weird voice where it's hard to figure out if he understands what's going on or not. It will be interesting how far Schklair will go to get his name attached to The Room, which he claims to have embraced the comedic aspect of and thus is responsible for that special Room-y feeling that drove the whole world insane. My guess is that this development will be unceremoniously dropped and then never referred to again. (via SlashFilm)
