David Lynch Has Quit the ‘Twin Peaks’ Reboot

David Lynch has quit the Twin Peaks reboot project after a salary dispute with Showtime. The network is moving forward with the series without Lynch, who confirmed via Twitter last night that he is no longer attached to the project.

Lynch posted to Twitter and also to the Twin Peaks Festival’s Facebook page saying, “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.”

Lynch also posted, “I love the world of Twin Peaks and wish things could have worked out differently.”

Lynch had mentioned in previous weeks that contracts still hadn’t been signed and that his involvement was “up in the air.” No word yet on if this will affect any cast members’ decisions to return to the series.

“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.” A Showtime spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter, “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.”

We’ll keep you posted as more details surface.
