Oh hello, shark. Watch the new trailer of Big Shark, the first film directed by Tommy Wiseau since the cult classic The Room.

Shark films are a dime a dozen, especially with Schlock-Like Jersey Shore: Shark Attack, Sand Sharks, Ghost Sharks, and so much more. But what happens when Tommy Wiseau, the visionary director of The room, aiming for the ocean’s most fearsome predator? Tommy Wiseau posted one new trailer for Big Sharkthis is sort of the first film he’s directed since the release of The room twenty years ago.

The world’s most vicious hunter has come to the bayou and wants only one thing…blood.The film stars Tommy Wiseau as Patrick, Isaiah LaBorde as Tim and Greg Sestero as Georgie, three firefighters tasked with saving New Orleans from a killer shark.

Accordingly diversity, Big Shark will premiere on April 2nd at the Cinema 21 in Portland, Oregon. More screenings will follow, with “a tentative schedule of engagements presented by the Prytania Theaters at Canal Place in New Orleans (April 28 and 29), the Balboa Theater in San Francisco, California (May 5 and 6), the Landmark Westwood in Los Angeles ( June 2nd and 3rd) and Angelika’s Village East in New York City (August 10th, 11th and 12th).“Tommy Wiseau is said to be planning to appear in person at these ‘pre-premier’ screenings, with the roadshow theatrical release running for eight months before finally the ‘official Final Cut version’ is released.
