Watch: 'The Room' director Tommy Wiseau is back with new film 'Big Shark'

While details are sparse and there hasn't been a release date announced yet, fans are excited for the forthcoming film

Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero have reunited for a new film.

Sixteen years after making The Room, what is viewed as one of the worst films of all time, the duo have come together for Wiseau’s newest film project titled Big Shark.

While details are still sparse, it appears the film is about what you would expect based on its title – a large shark that terrorises people. Wiseau, Sestero and Isaiah LaBorde play men living in New Orleans when the attacks happen.

Earlier this week, a shaky bootleg teaser for the film was uploaded online, but Wiseau has taken it upon himself to upload another one-minute trailer onto his YouTube account offering more detail into the project (watch it above).

While there's been no release date announced, people across social media made it known that they are excited for the movie:

Wiseau is best known for directing and starring in The Room, which was critically panned at the time of its release, has since gone on to become a cult hit and a favourite among fans, including many celebrities. Screenings of the film still happen around the world today.

For those who might need a refresher, here's a clip from the flick:

The Room has also inspired many memes and references in pop culture:

Wiseau and Sestero were reunited for 2017's Best F(r)iends, which follows their reunion 15 years after making The Room. The film was written and and produced by Sestero.

The two were also portrayed by James and Dave Franco in 2017's Oscar-nominated The Disaster Artist, which was based off a book of the same name by Sestero.
