Odenkirk shared a report announcing the movie from SlashFilm (opens in a new tab) on Twitter (opens in a new tab)writing, “It’s real. It’s true. And let me tell you, I did my best to SELL every line, as honestly as possible…and I had a BLAST.”

Odenkirk took on the role of Johnny, originally played by Tommy Wiseau. Filming for the remake took place in January, shot mostly on green screen, with Acting for a Cause behind the film, an organization that raises money for charitable causes by asking for donations tied to digital performances. This time, the proceeds will go to amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. The band’s previous projects include A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Julia Fox as Hippolyta and Jane Eyre with Stranger Things’ Natalia Dyer in the title role.
