A few comments from filmmaker David Lynch a few days ago have caused some confusion about Showtime’s planned revival of “Twin Peaks”.
Appearing at a QPAC panel in Australia for his new art exhibit, Lynch apparently suggested the project is “still up in the air” and “there are complications”.
Lynch seemed more certain though in an interview with ABC News 24’s The Mix, saying there’s some contract details still being worked out: “I haven’t returned yet and we’re still working on the contract, but I love the world of Twin Peaks and I love those characters. And I think it will be very special to go back into that world.”
All of this seems to be news to Showtime, which has reportedly already received all of Lynch’s scripts for the project, has greenlit the limited series and has already signed at least one actor (Kyle MacLachlan).
A source tells EW today: “Nothing is going on that’s any more than any pre-production process with David Lynch. Everything is moving forward and everybody is crazy thrilled and excited.”
Lynch was reportedly set to direct all nine episodes, will that still happen?
