'Twin Peaks' Creator David Lynch Talks Upcoming Revival With 'Variety'

The cast of the upcoming revival of Twin Peaks covers the May issue of Variety, available now.

Here’s what the creator David Lynch and the cast, including Laura Dern and Kyle MacLachlan, had to share with the mag:

David on where his ideas come from: “It comes in a burst. An idea comes in, and if you stop and think about it, it has sound, it has image, it has a mood, and it even has an indication of wardrobe, and knowing a character, or the way they speak, the words they say. A whole bunch of things can come in an instant.”

Laura on the original series: “I don’t think anyone who ever saw Twin Peaks will ever have it not ingrained in their memory and imagination for the rest of their lives.

Kyle on David’s creative process: “There’s no wasted time or wasted emotions, tangents, whatever. He’s very precise when we talk through the scene, and he tells me what’s going to happen. He has already thought it through, and he sees it.”

'Twin Peaks' Director David Lynch Makes Surprise Appearance at Showtime TCA Panel

Twin Peaks director David Lynch surprised some lucky fans today!

The famed director stepped out during Showtime’s panel during the 2017 Winter TCA Tour on Monday (January 9) at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, Calif.

During the panel, David revealed some new details about the upcoming Twin Peaks revival.

“The story of Laura Palmer’s last seven days is very, very important for this,” he revealed, also opening up about the ending of the first series.

“What killed Twin Peaks originally — who killed Laura Palmer? — was a question that we did not ever really want to answer. That Laura Palmer mystery was the goose that laid these little golden eggs. And then at a certain point, we were told we needed to wrap that up and after that, [the show] never really picked up,” he explained.

Also in attendance was Jim Carrey and the cast of I’m Dying Up Here as well as Freida Pinto and the Guerrilla cast and Malin Akerman and the cast of Billions.

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.”
