Reports that David Lynch will direct a new promo has fans theorizing — is it a promo, or a follow-up?
“Twin Peaks” fans are all aflutter with the news that David Lynch is shooting some sort of new footage for the 1990s franchise, beginning Tuesday.
It started earlier this week when a casting call for a “Twin Peaks” promo was posted by Sande Alessi Casting for a “Twin Peaks” promo shooting Tuesday. It’s looking for a “hot” brunette or redhead between ages 18 to 27.
Here’s the casting call, according to projectcasting.com:
TWIN PEAKS PROMO. Directed by David Lynch. Shoots in Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 7, 2014. Prob a 6 hour or less day. Rate is 150/8. You must live in LA to submit. I don’t think SAG has jurisdiction on this, so SAG and NON can submit. I have called SAG to double check this and I am awaiting a call back to confirm this though.
HOT Caucasian girl – BRUNETTE OR REDHEADS ONLY to play waitress. Age 18-27. MUST have an amazing body. Busty, very period looking face. Please submit two current color photos (one body shot, one face shot), your sizes, union status and contact info to: SandeAlessiCasting@gmail.com. Subject line should read: TP Promo
Although TheWrap spoke with someone at Sande Alessi Casting who said the ad sounds real, there’s some speculation that it’s false. A tweet from an unverified account of show co-producer Mark Frost said that the posting is false.
Early speculation suggested Lynch is shooting the promo for the upcoming Blu-ray release of the former ABC series, which is reportedly slated for an early 2014 release.
But, Bustle.com had a theory that the promo is meant to follow up on a scene during the show’s series finale.
Apparently, Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) tells Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) on the finale that she will see him again in 25 years. Although the show aired in 1990, it actually shot in 1989. So, 25 years later would be 2014.
So, does that mean that Lynch is making good on Laura’s promise?
CBS TV, which distributes the series on DVD, hasn’t returned TheWrap’s request for comment on the casting call.
“Twin Peaks” only aired for two seasons on ABC from 1990-1991, but it has since become a cult hit and spawned a feature film: the prequel “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me,” which hit theaters in 1992.
