Twin Peaks Director Out of Revival

David Lynch has revealed that he will not be involved in a possible Twin Peaks revival.

The director tweeted that he has pulled out of the return, citing that “not enough money was offered” for him to write the script the way he felt it had to be.

He also revealed that he has contacted the cast to inform them of his withdrawal.

Showtime responded with a statement, saying;

“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.”

It was announced in October 2014 that the cult show would be returning. Lynch previously raised doubts that the revival would actually happen, claiming that there were complications and he wasn’t sure if it was happening.

Original series star Kyle McLachlan is set to return in the lead role.
