Showtime Hopes to Resolve David Lynch's Contract Issues for TWIN PEAKS

I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.

Deadline reported yesterday that Showtime hopes to resolve contract issues that resulted in director David Lynch making an announcement that he has dropped out of the production of the upcoming revival of Twin Peaks.  According to the article, Showtime made the following statement on the matter:

“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.”

With or without Lynch, the revival still seems alive at Showtime.  Lynch was going to direct a nine-episode series based on his original 1990-1991 show, based on scripts he and original co-creator Mark Frost have already written.  Kyle MacLachlan was set to reprise his role of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper and the new shows were slated to air in 2016.

Showtime's statement addressed comments that Lynch made yesterday on his official Twitter account...
