David Lynch Exits 'Twin Peaks' Reboot, Showtime Releases Additional Statement

Twin Peaks creator David Lynch has announced he has dropped out of Showtime’s revival of the cult favorite television show.

“Dear Facebook Friends, Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks. 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. 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. I love the world of Twin Peaks and wish things could have worked out differently,” David posted to his Facebook earlier today.

“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 said in the statement (via Variety). “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.”

    If Lynch isn’t going to be a part of it, then there is no use in doing the reboot as far as I’m concerned.
