David Lynch Considering Return To Television
23 years ago, on April 8 1990, David Lynch and Mark Frost shook up the world with the brilliant series premiere of Twin Peaks. Today, David Lynch revealed that heís considering a return to the medium of TV.
On the occasion of attending the 5th International Thriller Film Festival in Beaune, France (April 3-7, 2013) as guest of honor, the director gave an interview to the free daily newspaper, Metro France, in which he explained that he hasnít fallen in love with an idea for a new movie yet, but that he is considering a return to television. From todayís edition:
Jerome Vermelin (for Metro France): You could come back with a new series?
David Lynch: Iím thinking about it. Iím thinking about it. Television allows you to tell a story over time, something cinema doesnít. For me, the two formats will always exist, itís like painting in a square or rectangular.
HBO, Showtime, Netflix, AMC, and othersÖ nowĎs the time for your people to talk to his people. And Mark Frostís people. Not necessarily about a third season of Twin Peaks, but about something only this sublime tandem can create.
