“Best F(r)iends,” starring cult-movie heroes Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero (“The Room”), is written by Sestero, the New York Times best-selling author of “The Disaster Artist,” that was adapted into an Oscar® nominated Hollywood film. The new Wiseau-Sestero dark comedy thriller hits movie theaters nationwide this Spring. Inspired by a road trip made by Sestero and Wiseau after the production of “The Room” in April 2003.
When a drifter (Sestero) is taken in by a peculiar mortician (Wiseau), the two hatch an underground enterprise off the back of the mortician’s old habits. But greed, hatred and jealousy soon come in turn, and their efforts unravel, causing the drifter to run off with the spoils and leaving the mortician adrift. An expedition across the Southwest introduces wild and crazy characters through a series of twisted and dark foibles as both men learn a valuable lesson about friendship and loyalty.
