David Lynch went to Twitter to announce that he will not be directing the “Twin Peaks” revival. This does not mean that the revival of “Twin Peaks” has been pulled by Showtime; the show will go on as scheduled but Lynch is no longer involved with the revival. Lynch said that there wasn’t enough money offered to do the show justice, or at least how he wanted the show to go. Negotiations took over a year to try and figure out some deal where both parties would be happy.
From Variety’s report Showtime released the following statement: “We were saddened to read David Lynch’s statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points. Showtime also loves the world of ‘Twin Peaks’ and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.”
Apparently, Showtime did not know before Lynch’s announcement that he would not be directing the revival of the cult classic. Although it is sad to see Lynch walk away from “Twin Peaks” as a director, Lynch and Mark Frost have already written nine episodes. “Twin Peaks” is set to be filmed this year and to premiere in 2016.
