David Lynch Says There May Be a Fourth Season of Twin Peaks

This past year we saw the release of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return” on Showtime. And while the series was strange as hell (go figure) I enjoyed ever crazy-ass floor-sweeping, face-punching-off minute of it. But will there be a fourth season? After all, we had to wait the better part of three decades to […]

David Lynch says a fourth season of Twin Peaks a possibility!

  • JoBlo
So, David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks: The Return has been out for months now, with the series having garnered mixed-to-favorable reviews. I personally had mixed feelings myself. I loved a lot of things (like the nuclear imagery), and hated other aspects (like everything with Dougie), but overall felt pretty positively about it. Oh, except the ending, though, which while philosophically and... Read More...

David Lynch on Another 'Twin Peaks' Return: "I've Learned Never Say Never"

It's equally remarkable that the methodical and unpredictable David Lynch directed all 18 episodes of this summer's Twin Peaks revival and that Showtime let the esoteric auteur deliver a haunting, confounding, towering series that seemed close to unfiltered. Nightmarish surrealism blended with musical performances from the likes of Eddie Vedder and spiked with the sadness of deaths from several major castmembers. 

In his amiably evasive fashion, Lynch discussed his renewed love for television, the Twin Peaks season's ending, and more with The Hollywood Reporter.

After the premiere event in L.A., did you pay any attention at...

New to Streaming: ‘Logan Lucky,’ ‘Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me,’ ‘Mudbound,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Allied (Robert Zemeckis)

That thing we can’t take for granted: a film whose many parts – period piece, war picture, blood-spattered actioner, deception-fueled espionage thriller, sexy romance, and, at certain turns, comedy – can gracefully move in conjunction and separate from each other, just as its labyrinthine-but-not-quite plot jumps from one setpiece to the next with little trouble in maintaining a consistency of overall pleasure. Another late-career triumph for Robert Zemeckis,

Denis Villeneuve Teases ‘Dune’ Passion Project: ‘It Will Not Have Any Link With the David Lynch Movie’

Denis Villeneuve Teases ‘Dune’ Passion Project: ‘It Will Not Have Any Link With the David Lynch Movie’
Blade Runner 2049” was a financial disappointment for Warner Bros. this fall (it still hasn’t even crossed $90 million domestically), but for many critics and fans it will remain a major artistic achievement for director Denis Villeneuve. After making three acclaimed movies in three years with “Sicario,” “Arrival,” and “2049,” the director is set to take a small break before moving on to revive another ambitious science-fiction property: “Dune.”

Villeneuve is set to adapt Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel for Legendary Pictures, and he’s already gone on record saying the movie will be “the project of [his] life.” The decision to tackle “Dune” is a risky one, considering the material often gives filmmakers a ton of trouble behind the camera. Alejandro Jodorowsky famously tried and failed to adapt the book in the 1970s, while David Lynch disliked his 1984 adaption so

Tom Sizemore Dropped From New Film After Being Accused of Groping 11-Year-Old Actress
Production company Global Genesis Group has announced it is removing actor Tom Sizemore from its upcoming horror-thriller “The Door” following an allegation against the actor that claims he groped an 11-year-old actress in 2003. Sizemore was cast in the 1950s-set film in August in the role of Scott, one half of a married couple who discovers his house may be haunted. The screenplay was written by Charles Morris and Harel Goldstein.

David Lynch Discusses ‘Twin Peaks,’ Music, and the Advantages of Digital Cinematography in Hour-Long Q & A

The Camerimage International Film Festival, hosted annually in the city of Bydgoszcz, Poland, places the least-exposed of documentary, narrative, and short-subject cinema side-by-side with the largest productions staged by any entities, studio- and television-wise, in a given year. The result, thanks in at least some part to jet lag I never fully kick, is dizzying in the most stimulating of ways: it’s possible to run run from The Shape of Water to, downstairs, a Georgian documentary about small-town living, and, excepting the obvious matter of what gets a bigger screening space, not find any greater or lesser amount of respect afforded to one over the other. You still wouldn’t necessarily expect that the hottest ticket by a country kilometer gets you into two TV episodes that have been widely available throughout the world for nearly six months. Being an annual assembly of international and, often, difficult-to-encounter cinema, that could raise eyebrows,

David Lynch on ‘Twin Peaks,’ ‘Arthouse’ Television, ‘Lynchian Fear’

David Lynch on ‘Twin Peaks,’ ‘Arthouse’ Television, ‘Lynchian Fear’
David Lynch broke up his audience at the Camerimage film festival screening of the first two episodes of his “Twin Peaks” reboot Tuesday, offering coy responses to questions about his methods, inspirations and plans.

As for how he managed to revive the cult hit series from the early 90s and find elements that would work for new viewers 25 years later, he said, “There was a dream that took place in ‘Twin Peaks’ – Agent Cooper’s dream that took place 25 years into the future.” The actor-artist-musician-director said the vision, which his central character had in the surreal Red Room setting of the series, was fortuitous “as if it was fate all along.” During the original broadcast of “Twin Peaks” no one had any idea the series might actually return in that time frame when the spirit of murdered girl Laura Palmer said to Cooper, “I’ll see you in 25 years.”

Doc NYC 2017: Peter Braatz on Blue Velvet Revisited

The past year has proven to be a uniquely rewarding time for David Lynch obsessives, with the Showtime revival of Twin Peaks being the obvious highlight, but also marked by recent Criterion Collection Blu-ray/DVD special editions of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and the new documentary, David Lynch: the Art Life, focused on Lynch’s painting roots. However, one of the most fascinating Lynch-related features in recent memory has yet to receive the widespread U.S. exposure it richly deserves, and it reflects back to a more traditionally structured Lynch favorite (indeed, still the film that some cite as his key work) that those […]

Women and People of Color Directed More TV Than Ever This Season, and It Didn’t Cost White Men Any Work

Women and People of Color Directed More TV Than Ever This Season, and It Didn’t Cost White Men Any Work
There are plenty of upsides to the increase in television being made recently, and here’s a big one: More episodes means more opportunities for women and people of color behind the camera.

According to a study released today by the Director’s Guild of America, over the course of the 2016-2017 season there were 4,482 episodes of television produced under DGA contracts in the 2016-2017 season. This represents a 10 percent increase over last year, but more importantly that volume led to an increase in minority hiring for these shows.

The number of episodes directed by minorities in the 2016-2017 season was a 28 percent increase over last year, leaping from 783 episodes to 1,006 episodes. In addition, 205 individual minority directors found themselves working this year, a 46 percent increase over 2015-2016.

Doc Corner: David Lynch and the Allure of 'Blue Velvet Revisited'

By Glenn Dunks

The massive Doc NYC festival continues this week in New York City until the 16th, showcasing over 250 films and events. We have one more capsule collection to go up the coming days to close out the festival, but today we're entering the wonderful and strange world of David Lynch in Blue Velvet Revisited, which screens tonight at Cinepolis Chelsea at 9.30pm.

I don’t know about you, but 2017 hasn’t been the strongest year for movies in my eyes. Part of that may have to do directly with the product itself. But a more significant part is that quite literally no movie I have seen this year has had quite the gravitational pull of Twin Peaks. The return of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s classic 1990s television series was maligned by many, but found a dedicated collection of fans for whom it was 18-hours of pure Lynchian madness,

‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Review: Spike Lee Reinvents His Debut in Netflix’s Superb Comedy Series

  • Collider.com
Not unlike Twin Peaks: The Return, Spike Lee's new Netflix comedy series, She's Gotta Have It, simultaneously represents a summation and an expansion of the legendary filmmaker's style and thematic obsessions. And like David Lynch, Lee has returned to his origins to push his art forward, reinventing his groundbreaking 1986 debut of the same name. The crucial difference is that where Lynch has continued to venture into the unknown and otherworldly, Lee has fully embraced the here and now, indulging stylistic notions that reflect memes and hashtags as well as a revitalized focus on toxic masculinity, the …

Directed by David Lynch

Making its debut in April of 1990, Twin Peaks arrived on ABC’s doorstep as a kind of Trojan horse, infiltrating the network disguised as a weekly melodrama while hiding its arthouse inclinations behind a Peyton Place exterior. A supernatural soap opera governed by doppelgängers, time travelers and the transmigration of souls, director David Lynch’s effort was a short-lived sensation but has since enjoyed its own reincarnations in a feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, and the Showtime series, Twin Peaks: The Return.

To ask the creators of “Twin Peaks” specific questions about what actually happens in the enigmatic series is often to set oneself up for disappointment, but Mark Frost has always been more forthcoming than David Lynch. That trend continued in his reddit Ama held earlier today, which touched on everything from the Experiment to Bobby and Shelly. Here are some highlights:

When asked about Bobby and Shelly, Frost said that the former couple “raised Rebecca together but slowly grew apart, as young couples often do. Amicable divorce, shared custody. Shelly’s weakness for ‘bad boys’ never went away, but infidelity was not the root cause for their breakup. Warrants have been issued, but Red, as of this writing, is still on the loose.”

Mark Frost on ‘Twin Peaks,’ Realistic Endings, and David Lynch’s Consciousness

The return to Twin Peaks did not begin with this summer’s third, possibly final season of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s medium-shaking television project — despite what almost everything, from general public perception to the kind-of-sort-of-but-not-really subtitle, would have you believe — but through last year’s The Secret History of Twin Peaks, a visually dense, textually opaque epistolary novel penned by Frost. Though initially perplexing in scope (it begins with Lewis and Clark, folds the likes of Richard Nixon and L. Rob Hubbard into the Peaks mythos, and only hits the original series’ events at book’s end), it proved a more-or-less-perfect tee-up: plenty was said, seemingly nothing revealed — perhaps the most notable exception being the existence of Agent Tamara Preston, played in the new series by Chrysta Bell — and its tethers to events we’d eventually follow (or at least observe) week after week proved, in hindsight, rather deep.

‘Twin Peaks’: 9 New Facts About the Series’ Past and Future From Mark Frost’s Book

‘Twin Peaks’: 9 New Facts About the Series’ Past and Future From Mark Frost’s Book
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers from “Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier,” a new book by Mark Frost, and “Twin Peaks: The Return.”]

To get right to it: For anyone interested enough to click on this article, “Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier” is almost certainly worth reading in full. (And with the holidays coming up, why not put it on your wish list?) Engrossing, efficient, and with just the right amount of personality, Mark Frost’s 145-page novel provides both necessary and superfluous information related to the series — especially “The Return” — all of which can be digested quickly and enjoyably.

Framed as a report from FBI Agent and newly inducted Blue Rose Task Force member Tamara Preston (played by Chrysta Bell in “The Return”) to her boss and FBI Deputy Director Gordon Cole (David Lynch), the book consists mainly of case files. Most cover individuals ranging from Shelly Johnson to Windom Earle, but there are also sections on The Double R Diner, Twin Peaks (the town), and a briefing near the end simply titled “Today.
