As originally reported in The Hollywood Reporter, a handful of popular cast members of the cult classic Twin Peaks come out in support of their writer/director David Lynch in his highly publicized budget battles with Showtime. This is in response to Lynch’s Twitter-based announcement over the weekend that he was stepping away from the project in his capacity as director because he did not feel he could deliver the highly anticipated 2016 reboot on the budget Showtime had allocated.
In the video, former cast members Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, James Marshall, Peggy Lipton in addition to others praise Lynch and say the revival without him would be “like pies without cherries.” They have also initiated a #SaveTwinPeaks campaign on Twitter to draw attention.
The only former cast member confirmed for the revival is Kyle McLachlan who does not appear in the video.
According to the article, Showtime remains firm that they were in contract negotiations with Lynch and is hopeful they can bring Twin Peaks back to the small screen in tact. With Lynch.
