Director planning on shooting new footage for cult TV series
David Lynch is returning to his cult TV show Twin Peaks, it has been reported.
Blue Velvet director Lynch created Twin Peaks in 1990. The series, which featured on FBI Agent Dale Cooper’s investigation of the murder of teenager Laura Palmer and the inhabitants of the town Twin Peaks, ran for two seasons until it was cancelled in 1991.
According to Bustle, however, Lynch will be shooting new footage for the show and a casting call has been distributed for the extra scenes. In full, it reads: “TWIN PEAKS PROMO. Directed by David Lynch. Shoots in Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 7, 2014. Prob a 6 hour or less day. Rate is 150/8. You must live in LA to submit. I don’t think SAG has jurisdiction on this, so SAG and NON can submit. I have called SAG to double check this and I am awaiting a call back to confirm.
“HOT Caucasian girl – BRUNETTE OR REDHEADS ONLY to play waitress. Age 18-27. MUST have an amazing body. Busty, very period looking face. Please submit two current color photos (one body shot, one face shot), your sizes, union status and contact info to: SandeAlessiCasting@gmail.com.”
Twin Peaks was a critical hit and received 14 Emmy nominations during its run. However, declining ratings in the show’s second series meant it was placed on indefinite hiatus by network ABC. Lynch later directed a prequel film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, which was released in 1992.
In June of last year, Lynch admitted that his future as a filmmaker is uncertain after claiming he doesn’t know what he can do “in the world of cinema” any more. He launched a music career in 2011 with his debut LP ‘Crazy Clown Time’ and released a follow-up effort, ‘The Big Dream’, in July last year.
