New Twin Peaks TV Movies?
Agent Cooper may return for telefilms.
A return to the Great Northern may not be in his future, but Agent Dale Cooper, Kyle MacLachlan's character from the popular David Lynch TV series Twin Peaks, may be returning to the small screen.
There are fresh rumors that Lynch, currently shooting a new film called Inland Empire, is considering doing a series of Twin Peaks-inspired TV movies. A tipster over at Dark Horizons recently completed two days of work on the picture and reportedly overheard some details of the project. "The [Director of Photography], who I'd met at lunch... talked to a group of us and said David and Kyle are thinking about doing some 'Dale Cooper' telemovies - the dude he played on TV. Nothing to do with Twin Peaks, I guess, just that character."
The 1990s TV series featured MacLachlan as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, a man investigating the death of a young girl named Laura Palmer in the small Washington town of Twin Peaks. As he delves deeper into her mysterious demise, Cooper begins to uncover the secrets of the town and realizes that something much more significant that a single murder has taken place.
