The Room director and star of upcoming game series The Tommy Wi-Show, Tommy Wiseau, has stated that he'd "absolutely" like to direct a film based on a videogame property. During our exclusive interview with him on Podtoid, he applauded the technical achievements of games, and their value as artistic properties.

"Sure, this is the thing, you have to be open-minded. Entertainment's changing, constantly," he told us. "As you guys know ... from 35, to HD, to 'Super-HD' [as] I'm calling it right now. Yes, absolutely you can create a movie based on a game, based on the animation, I mean you can go [to] infinity. You have to be open-minded. Absolutely, the answer's yes, sure."

Tommy seems to have a genuine respect for gaming, stating it's "not just violence" and that it provides much needed "excitement" to the human brain. He is also very excited about gaming's educational value and stating that, "Everyone should play a game."
