Bloody Easter and Beyond...

***BREAKING***
From Adweek:
Adweek: Where do things stand with Twin Peaks?
David Nevins: We're in the middle of it. I can't say too much.

Adweek: It sounds like you're still holding out hope that Lynch's departure isn't definitive.
David Nevins: It's either a negotiation, or he's had cold feet. But I am hopeful.

Adweek: So at this point, you're waiting to figure out what's going on with David before you decide anything else about the future of Twin Peaks?
David Nevins: Correct.


On Sunday April 5th, David Lynch made this shocking announcement:

"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."

Needless to say, many hardcore fans were busy picking their jaws up off the floor whilst others were crying "not again!"

No sooner than Lynch had dropped that bombshell, many core cast members released this amazing video:



There is also a 'Save Twin Peaks' Facebook page set up by those same cast members. Sherilyn Fenn has answered many questions from fans. At one point, Sherilyn says "Definitely on location and refurbishing some of our locations!!!!!!!!!!!" Did she let it slip that the intention is to refurbish Tweed's AKA The Double RR Diner?

Late tonight, word has come through, via Variety, that Showtime has reached out to David Lynch to hash out a deal with Lynch rejoining as director. Here are some interesting quotes from the Variety piece:

- "The situation with the famously eccentric director has been complicated by what sources say was the fact that Lynch had not been in contact with his longtime lawyer, Tom Hansen of Hansen Jacobson, before announcing his decision to depart. He is not believed to be repped by an agent or manager at the moment."

- "The tussle over the budget emerged after Lynch and Frost turned in the nine scripts they co-wrote and it became clear that the cost of production would be significantly higher than the budgets outlined in the original deal. Sources said Showtime was willing to kick in more coin but asked for concessions in other areas, including the profit participation definitions for Lynch and Frost."

- "Lynch had been on board to direct all nine episodes. Frost is said to be committed to the project and was also taken by surprise by Lynch’s public statements."

So, that is where we are now. Stay tuned...

Deleted Scene: Donna and Will Hayward

As we draw closer to the release date of 'The Entire Mystery' Twin Peaks Blu-Ray set, we here at Twin Peaks Archive dig deep to bring you the world premiere of images from a long lost deleted scene from the series. Set to take place in episode #003 between the scenes of Cooper and Truman interrogating Leo and of Major Briggs confronting Bobby just before the funeral, this scene with Donna and her father would have further enhanced the general feeling of sadness and apprehension at facing Laura Palmer's burial.
