'Room' actor Greg Sestero to write memoir about making the 'Citizen Kane of bad movies'

Greg

One of the worst films ever made has now inspired a spin-off book. No, they still haven’t gotten around to publishing a novelization of From Justin to Kelly. (Oh, how much longer must we wait???) But actor Greg Sestero has just signed a deal with Simon & Schuster to detail his involvement in the notorious 2003 film-fiasco, The Room. Entitled Locked Inside ‘The Room,’ the tome will be co-penned by journalist Tom Bissell and is set for publication in 2013.

According to the official announcement, the book “will describe the movie’s tumultuous production, reveal the film’s myriad of mysteries, and provide a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of the film’s enigmatic creator, Tommy Wiseau.” Sestero himself dropped a note to EW confirming that the book will indeed offer “the only intimate look” at the mercurial Wiseau. He also promised that Locked Inside ‘The Room’ will be “fraught and revealing,” which, as Room fans will know, is also a pretty decent description of the movie’s numerous, retina-searing sex scenes.
