David Lynch may be working on a new film...

Far before the pandemic arrived, rumblings of a new David Lynch project hit the internet. After the gargantuan artistic achievement of Twin Peaks: The Return, some believed it could be a fourth season of the television show (or movie, as the debate continues to rage on), while other hints clued us into a project for Netflix and another tidbit revealed that it may involve collaborators Naomi Watts and Laura Dern.

Through it all, the filmmaker has stay relatively tight-lipped, but now he’s finally confirmed if it were for the pandemic, he’d likely be in the middle of production on a new project.

“I am in isolation. I love isolation. I’m not able to make films, but I’m able to paint and work on sculpture and work on my YouTube channel. It’s pretty great. I really kind of like isolation,” the director in a new conversation with PCS Literary Magazine. He then adds, if it weren’t for the current state of the world, “I’d be probably making a film or continuing a story.”

While it didn’t reveal any additional details, it is quite reassuring to hear he was that far along in the process that he’d be ready to shoot whatever the project is. Here’s hoping one of our greatest filmmakers stays safe and happily isolated until the world returns to normal and he can embark on this hugely-anticipated new artistic venture.

Re: Is David Lynch Done With Making Films?

Ugh, just another reason this pandemic sucks. A new Lynch movie. I've forgotten what that feels like.

Oh man, a new Lynch movie starring Laura Dern and Naomi Watts would be awesome!

I started Twin Peaks: The Return but ended up dropping Showtime and never finished it. I should look into ways to watch it so I can see the rest.

There seems to be some internet chatter that Lynch could be debuting a new film at Cannes this year...

As the Cannes Film Festival will announce its Official Selection on Thursday, Variety is starting to get a slightly clearer picture of what 75th edition will look like, though fewer titles than usual have leaked. Led by Cannes’ artistic director and general delegate Thierry Fremaux, the selection committee has been flooded with late submissions and is now in the thick of deliberations.

Most surprisingly, according to two well-informed sources, there will even be a David Lynch feature film which has been completely off the radar and stars Laura Dern — either as a cameo or a supporting role — along with some other Lynch regulars.

Can't wait for Naomi Watts to be crying on a bed while Laura Dern inhales fumes and punches Kyle Maclachlan and Nic Cage repeatedly as well dressed rabbits get off in the corner.

Any new Lynch is worth a watch.

Ok, Andrew Garfield. I don’t know if I believe him. There is a lot of breadcrumbs out there that could argue that he had been working on something. I guess we’ll see tomorrow when they announce the slate.

If there is actually a film, I’m assuming it must be related to a previous work, hence all the secrecy.

Some think it could be Twin Peaks related…

Lynch isn't lying. He's been coy about answering questions about his films, but he's never been shy about promoting new projects. Plus, I know a few people close to Lynch (not personally, but we talk online) who say he hasn't been working on anything. I think the schedule for Cannes comes out tomorrow, so we'll see.

There were denials from Lynch and others regarding The Return before it was announced too.

Are they just messing with us then?
Wisteria plant... the rumored project has gone by the name Wisteria. Pilot turned into a film again... ala Mulholland Drive.

The Cannes line up is out and Lynch is not on it.

I don't know. It seems odd to me that a major trade like Variety would publish something saying they were told by two sources.

Wistera WAS a thing (and may someday still be a thing). Lynch was negotiating with Netflix to do it, then the pandemic hit, and when things started to go back to normal, Netflix no longer wanted to pursue the project. I'm assuming David has pitched it to others, but so far no takers. NOTHING was ever shot though, not even a pilot.
