How much money did Tommy Wiseau’s cult movie make?

The Crypto Daily - Movers and Shakers - April 2, 2021

‘The Room’ cast and crew were constantly changing While this still isn’t enough to cover Wiseau’s initial investment, it’s a far cry from $1,900. Additionally, The Room’s cult popularity has placed Tommy Wiseau in a variety of spotlights since its release, allowing the filmmaker opportunities to leverage.  The Room actors Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero | Araya Diaz/Getty Images

However, fans have been curious about whether or not The Room made a profit for Tommy Wiseau — especially given that the mysterious creator funded the entire $6 million budget for the movie.  The Room by Tommy Wiseau has become a major cult hit since its release in 2003. The Room has something to offer for everybody. Its idiosyncrasies and less than stellar script, filming, and performances seem to draw crowds nevertheless. 

The Room’s initial release was a major flop, financially speaking. When The Room first hit the box office, it netted Wisaeu a mere $1,900 initially. However, Wisaeu’s cult hit has since pulled in roughly $4.9 million worldwide, given its rise to cult fame.  RELATED: Tommy Wiseau Wanted Johnny Depp to Play Him in ‘The Disaster Artist’

One cast member speaking to Entertainment Weekly requested anonymity, and explained that the script was actually heavily altered, despite Wiseau’s claims. “It was actually a lot longer. There was stuff that was just unsayable. I know it’s hard to imagine there was stuff that was worse. But there was,” they said.  “Some of the crew members, it’s correct, we changed three times basically. Because they tried, for example, to change the script. They say, ‘This is the way to do, etcetera, etcetera.’ I say, ‘No!”’ recalled Wiseau.

“It was just mayhem. You could come in and it would be a completely different cast and crew. It was crazy,” Dan Janjigian told Entertainment Weekly. Janjigian played drug dealer Chris R in The Room.  Cast and crew members who worked alongside Tommy Wiseau on The Room have previously explained that he wasn’t the easiest person to work with — and that their team saw some high turnover as a result.
