Wait, What? David Lynch Reportedly Not Cooking Up Another Movie After All

Laura Dern gave David Lynch fans hope last month. "I will be working with David Lynch when I'm 80. He is cooking up trouble, and I will be part of that trouble," Dern enthusiastically said in June of the fabled director who had previously claimed to have largely retired from filmmaking. "He's the consummate renaissance man, he just makes art wherever he can get his hands on it. But film, ultimately, I know is his great love, and I think he will always circle back to it. He's definitely cooking."

Laura Dern gave David Lynch fans hope last month. "I will be working with David Lynch when I'm 80. He is cooking up trouble, and I will be part of that trouble," Dern enthusiastically said in June of the fabled director who had previously claimed to have largely retired from filmmaking. "He's the consummate renaissance man, he just makes art wherever he can get his hands on it. But film, ultimately, I know is his great love, and I think he will always circle back to it. He's definitely cooking."

So what is David Lynch cooking? Could it possibly be one of the many unrealized  projects he never got off the ground (here’s five of them)? As early as summer of last year he said that Ronnie Rocket” could still come to life one day.

But in a long interview with the U.K. newspaper the Guardian, discussing the massive “Twin Peaks” box set due this fall, the director dashed many a dream. While he was not quoted directly, the paper writes, "[Lynch] says there are no plans yet for a new movie, though, and he is focused on a new painting instead.”

Of course that doesn’t mean he’ll never make another film. Lynch made a rare public appearance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music earlier this year to discuss his body of work in film, painting, photography, music and more, but the question of making more films sadly did not come up.

Asked if he would ever make more “Twin Peaks” films or shows, Lynch answered inscrutably, “In another life, yes. Like I say, you never say never.” So perhaps that’s an ounce of hope for Lynch-ites.
