Money Dispute Causes David Lynch To Walk Away From ‘Twin Peaks’ Reboot | TV News
Director and writer of Twin Peaks, David Lynch, has decided he will not be directing the reboot due to a financial situation. He has claimed that this is because the television network Showtime has failed to offer him enough money, to be able to give all nine new episodes penned by Lynch justice, and this decision has come after one year of negotiations. Just to set some clarity of the shows current status: it may still go ahead without Mr. Lynch on board.
Showtime do still want David Lynch on side, hence the following statement made by a Showtime spokesperson: “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”.
