David Lynch leaves Twin Peaks Season 3

Gepostet vor 1 Jahr, 1 Monat in

David Lynch hat die Verhandlungen mit Showtime über die dritte Twin Peaks-Staffel abgebrochen. Ich ging eigentlich davon aus, dass die nach der offiziellen Ankündigung schon abgeschlossen waren. Dem ist offensichtlich nicht so, David Lynch auf Facebook (via Sascha):

Dear Facebook 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.

Showtime schmeisst anscheinend noch nicht hin – die Rechte an einer dritten Staffel haben sie wohl mit oder ohne Lynch –, hier das Statement:

We were saddened to read David Lynch's statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points. SHOWTIME also loves the world of Twin Peaks and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.

[update] Vom normalerweise gut informierten und verlässlichen TwinPeaks-Fachblog: „Welcome to Twin Peaks got word directly from Showtime President David Nevins that he’s still trying to save the Twin Peaks deal as it was presented to us in October; with David Lynch directing all nine episodes. The statement came in an e-mail response a few hours after David Lynch’s tweets.“

[update 10.4.] Von Variety: ‘Twin Peaks': Showtime, Others Work to Bring David Lynch Back

Showtime topper David Nevins has reached out to Lynch directly to discuss the impasse over the series budget. Others connected to the project have been trying to find creative solutions that would allow Lynch to rejoin the fold. […]

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.
