Granted, it's pretty thin gruel but we'll take what we can get from David Lynch who hasn't made a film since 2006's "Inland Empire" and has lately embarked on an ill-advised music career.

That latter point would explain why he recently took time out of his schedule to chat with Rolling Stone (via The Film Stage) where Lynch revealed in his own mysterious way that he might have another new film in the works. "I'm working on a documentary of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, I just took part in a documentary of a 16-country tour I did on meditation, consciousness, and peace. And I'm working on another new film, but it's not there yet. I just finished a one-minute film for the Austrians. They have a festival in Vienna called Viennale," Lynch told the magazine. So let's break this down shall we?

The documentary is actually something Lynch has been talking up for a couple of years now. It was originally planned to shoot in India but it appears the the scope has expanded considerably, but since we have little to zero interest in transcendental meditation, a film about Maharishi Mahesh Yogi -- even if directed by Lynch -- doesn't particularly excite us. As for the one-minute film, that seems to be something new but again, its another sidetrack from Lynch doing a feature. Nor is it the first time he's done a ridiculously short film. Back in 2009 he hooked up with folks like Mike Figgis, Gaspar Noe, Harmony Korine, Carlos Reygadas, Abel Ferrara, Larry Clark, Kenneth Anger and Sergei Bodrov for "OneDreamRush" an omnibus of forty two directors making forty-two second long films. You can watch Lynch's entry "Dream #7" right here.

So what could this new film be? Lord only knows. Lynch has a long list of stuff that never got made and in recent years there have been rumblings of a children's film "Snootworld" as well as "Mulholland Drive 2." Whether it's either of those or something new remains to be seen, so we'll continue to patiently await whatever Lynch is cooking up. And oh yeah, in case you were wondering, his "Mulholland Drive" inspired nightclub "Silencio" has just opened in Paris. It looks positively normal.
