The "Better Call Saul" star Bob Odenkirk is back again before the audience, with a new project which is allegedly a remake of the Tommy Wiseau directorial "The Room" (2003). The news was confirmed with a post Odenkirk had shared on his Twitter account.

Slash Films announced Odenkirk's joining "The Room" remake, on their social media account last Wednesday morning. As a response to the post, Odenkirk posted on his Twitter account, "This is real. This is true, And let me tell you, I tried my best to SELL every line, as honestly as I could…and I had a BLAST."



According to media, Bob Odenkirk will be playing Tommy Wiseau role from the original version of the film. Moreover, the film is said to be a fundraiser for a non-profit organisation, amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.

However, the director of "The Room" (2003) Tommy Wiseau's Wiseau-Films told media outlets that they were not aware of the remake project and only came to know about it last Wednesday.
