Last year, Showtime announced plans to revive the 1990 cult TV show 'Twin Peaks', with series creator David Lynch directing. Now, Showtime are forging ahead without Lynch after negotiations, mostly around money, broke down last month. Lynch has taken to social media to announce the news, which may very well be an attempt to force Showtime back to the table - with more cash.
This weekend I started to call actors to let them know I would not be directing. Twin Peaks may still be very much alive at Showtime.- David Lynch (@DAVID_LYNCH) April 5, 2015
Revealing that "After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done", Lynch showed his hand - but Showtime has countered with a public olive branch via Variety, confirming they "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."
Still it seems that with or without Lynch, the 'Twin Peaks' revival is still happening.
