Twin Peaks/David Lynch/Kyle MacLachlan
In a recent interview with Deadline, David Lynch stated his next project will most likely be for television.
Feature films have fallen on hard times these days. And it’s sad, but it’s the reality. I always say now, cable television is the new arthouse. People have freedom and can make a continuing story. It’s pretty beautiful, but it’s not the big screen, so there’s a little bit of sorrow in the picture and a little bit of sorrow in the sound.
In a separate interview with Deadline, Kyle MacLachlan was optimistic about a fourth season of Twin Peaks.
I think those kinds of things are certainly possible. I think we’re all just waiting on David to have the spark of an idea to go forward. It’d be a great journey. I would drop everything to do that.
