On June 27th, 2003, a $6 million movie premiered at two theaters in Los Angeles, earning a reported box office gross of less than $2000. That movie was called THE ROOM, and against all odds it became a midnight screening sensation, changed the way the entire world watches movies, and made an enigmatic fake New Orleans native into the most successful unsuccessful director in Hollywood history.
On this week’s podcast, Alex Schmidt is joined by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber, screenwriters of the new (and high quality!) movie THE DISASTER ARTIST. Find out how a movie based on a book based on a film production slash friendship became a universally meaningful piece of drama, while keeping in every open door, ass shot, and demented line reading that makes THE ROOM a legend.
