David Lynch filming more 'Twin Peaks' footage
When "Twin Peaks" began airing in 1990, David Lynch sowed seeds for something that continues to flower. The director may be filming more "Peaks" footage.
When "Twin Peaks" began airing on ABC in the early 1990s, director David Lynch seemed to know he was sowing the seeds for something that would continue to bloom for the rest of his working life.
More than two decades later, the director is reportedly filming more footage for the series that redefined the notion of a "cult favorite."
And why shouldn't Lynch return to this weird Northwest logging town? In a dream sequence in the final episode, Laura Palmer — the series' mysteriously murdered centerpiece — tells Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), "I'll see you again in 25 years." Granted, she tells him this in an alternate reality known as the Black Lodge, and she says it kind of backwards, but hey, it will soon be 25 years.
According to the fan website Welcome To Twin Peaks, a casting call went out on Facebook from Sande Alessi Casting last week (the post was allegedly only up for a few hours) and filming is beginning today (Jan. 7)! This was the message:

At the height of its popularity, "Twin Peaks" products outside of the television show included a diary of Laura Palmer, a cassette recording of all of Cooper's dictaphone messages he left for himself (or for "Dianne," rather) and of course, the weird-ass prequel feature film "Fire Walk with Me."
