To be a true David Lynch fan is to practice patience.

Case in point: only after some 20 years of waiting do we, next week, get the coveted trove of scenes excised from "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" with the new "Twin Peaks" Blu-ray. Meanwhile, there have been occasional rumblings of his feature-length follow-up to "Inland Empire," a film that’s set to hit its eighth anniversary later this year. What little we’ve heard — something dark, something about a woman, and, natch, something probably starring Laura Dern — is little indeed. Though, according to Dern, “he's cooking up trouble, and I will be part of that trouble.”

So it came as no surprise when Lynch told The Guardian that a new film probably isn’t coming soon. Between assembling the deleted "Twin Peaks" footage (we know, from the 2011 "Blue Velvet" Blu-ray, that Lynch is obsessive about restoring his films) and his efforts in music, meditation, painting, coffee beans and, yes, women’s wear — “there are no plans yet for a new movie.”

Here's hoping Lynch is just playing things close to the chest while he prepares yet another mind-altering experience. In the meantime, watch his latest commercial:
