David Lynch pulls out of Twin Peaks

Back in March, we reported on a rumor that the Twin Peaks revival might not be happening. David Lynch had, at that time, cited complications in the negotiations over creative comtrol, production budget and merchandising royalties. Sadly, it appears that the rumors of his departure are true.

On April 5th, in a series of tweets, he confirmed that he would not be attached to the project.

Deadline is reporting that Showtime released an official statement expressing disappointment that an agreement could not be reached, but they are not scrapping the project altogether. Here's Showtime's statement, from Deadline's website:
“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.”

It seems that if the Twin Peaks revival is to happen at all, it will have to go on without David Lynch.
