Newswire: David Lynch says he won’t direct the new season of Twin Peaks

Here’s a bit of disappointing, if not entirely unexpected, news: Twin Peaks co-creator, coffee connoisseur, and film-school demigod David Lynch will not direct the revived Twin Peaks when it returns to Showtime for a third season next year. Lynch made the announcement earlier today via Twitter:

Dear Twitter Friends, Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks.

After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.

This weekend I started to call actors to let them know I would not be directing. Twin Peaks may still be very much alive at Showtime.

I love the world of Twin Peaks and wish things could have worked out differently.
