>> Dear Facebook Friends, David wanted me to pass along the following statement:
Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks.
After one year and four 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.
Obviously, the appeal of nine hours all directed by Lynch was huge. But if it's still a Lynch/Frost script... Yeah, I want to see it.
Tim Hunter did the best three episodes of the series that Lynch did not... the middle one, with Leland's death, was tremendous. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0006853/
Six of Mad Men
, one of Deadwood
, one of Breaking Bad
... the film River's Edge
is an underrated 80s gem...
He'd be my pick.
