David Lynch will reprise his role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole
Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore have reportedly signed up to appear in the new series of Twin Peaks.
The series, which will arrive on US and UK screens in 2017, would see Watts working with director David Lynch once more having starred as Betty Elms in Mulholland Drive. As yet there are no reports as to which characters Watts and Sizemore will play.
However, Deadline states that David Lynch will reprise his role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole when the series returns.
This comes off the back of the news that Sherilyn Fenn has reportedly agreed to appear in the new series of Twin Peaks with her character Audrey Horne returning alongside Kyle MacLachlan’s Dale Cooper.
It is reported that Lara Flynn Boyle has opted against a return but that Miguel Ferrer will revive his role as FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield while David Patrick Kelly is said to be reprising his role as Jerry Horne. Meanwhile, Sheryl Lee has been photographed on the set as Laura Palmer.
Amanda Seyfried, Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Knepper and Balthazar Getty are all rumoured to have been cast as new characters alongside original cast members.
Director David Lynch and his Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost have penned one long script for the series, which Lynch will shoot as a continuous movie before editing it down into individual episodes.
Although Showtime originally commissioned nine new episodes of Twin Peaks, it is expected to run considerably longer. Lynch announced in April 2015 that he had pulled out of the revival series, but then announced the following month that he was back on board to direct the new episodes.
