Twin Peaks’ budget has David Lynch bailing

David Lynch was attached to direct and co-write the Twin Peaks revival series. The nine-episode show was to be aired on Showtime in 2016. However, plans are changing due to Showtime not wanting the budget Lynch is asking for.

If you were looking forward to Lynch being involved, it’s time to say goodbye. Check out the statement issued from the Twin Peaks Facebook page:

Dear Facebook Friends, David wanted me to pass along the following statement:

Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks.

After one year and four 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.
Lynch has stated in the past that they were still working on his contract, but an “unnamed source” told Entertainment Weekly that the show was moving forward. This was in March of this year.

Here’s his tweet to reconfirm what was said before:

He does mention that even though he’s gone, Showtime will probably still proceed with bringing Twin Peaks back on TV.
