The sequel of the cult classic Twin Peaks will be directed by David Lynch, who formerly had refused to take part in producing because of a deadlock over budget concerns.
Last year Showtime, the US television network, stated that the series , based on a murder in a small town called Twin Peaks, was to return in a limited series in 2016, almost 25 years since its last airing. Although later, in April, Mr Lynch claimed that the film-budget was to small for him to participate. He also tweeted at the time that he had been given not enough money to do the proper script, just the way how he saw it and felt it needed to be done.
However, on Friday Mr Lynch confirmed in one of his tweets that the rumors were far from truth and the Twin Peaks story is to continue.
Also, David Nevins, the Showtime president, admitted on Friday that Lynch will direct not only formerly announced 9 hours but the whole thing, what is quite more.
Lynch’s return had been celebrated by the all diehard fans and by Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan, who had played Dale Cooper in the original series and stated to be leaned towards reprising his role.
The cult drama was created in early 1990s by Mark Frost and David Lynch, who also produced Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive.
Besides, the show, which plot revolves around the murder of teenage schoolgirl Laura Palmer, won three Golden Globe awards in 1991, including best TV series and best actor for Kyle MacLachlan.
