Tommy Does Horror!

July 12th, 2010 by Kyle

The latest news out of Tinseltown is that our old friend and past interviewee Tommy Wiseau, who is never one to let the grass grow under his feet, is involved in a new horror film project due to debut at San Diego Comic Con. It’s a short film titled “The House That Drips Blood on Alex”, and if you don’t get to see it at SDCC, don’t worry about it – it’ll be coming to Cartoon Network in the fall. We couldn’t be happier to give the teaser trailer a plug right here on the Geek Tragedy blog.

How’s that for something to look forward to?

Geek Tragedy Makes “Room” For Tommy Wiseau!

February 15th, 2010 by Kyle

Kyle here;

It is my pleasure to announce that I’ve just finished recording an interview with the one, the only Mr. Tommy Wiseau; producer/screenwriter/director/star of the cult classic movie “The Room”. We’re planning to air the interview on the podcast we’ll be releasing on Tuesday, February 23rd.

Without giving away too much, I’ll tantalize you all by telling you that Tommy told me about upcoming projects including an in-progress book on filmmaking and the possibility of… The Room 3D!!!

Look for it in our February 23rd podcast!
