If they had big plans for Twin Peaks to be filming soon they might make a lockdown special. They could film 18 hours on webcams.

Parks & Rec did this (not 18 hours). It was pretty great as a one-off novelty (and will be an interesting piece of time capsule entertainment to look back on), but definitely not a sustainable ongoing format (and much better suited to a lightweight comedy about friends than a surreal supernatural mystery drama). I can’t imagine where Cooper would be skyping in from after Part 18.

My idea would be to have Cooper meet up with Jerry and Dr Amp in the woods and they all camp out under the stars and make a video-cast.

I'm hoping that during this quarantine time Lynch is going through all of the unused footage from Season 3. Whether he uses that footage for Season 4 or just another Missing Pieces, it would be amazing to see.

I believe that during filming of the final scene with Cooper and Carrie outside the Palmer house, there was more filmed than what we saw. I remember reading Cooper and Carrie were filmed walking back to the car after leaving the house, and then driving away together. There were Dugpa spies at the filming that night, and they reported back many details for us.

I also remember reports of a huge fire being filmed late one night. I believe it was an abandoned motel? Anyone else remember that?

I personally feel like their can't be all that much unused footage from S3 -- considering all the random bits Lynch left in (Andy and Lucy buying a chair online, Dougie and son throwing baseball, sweeping the floor of the Roadhouse, all of that first long Audrey/Charlie scene), it does feel like most of what of what was filmed was used. I would love to be wrong about that though.

I don't know much about what they filmed at the Palmer house, but I do suspect they filmed a little bit more then we got to see in the final cut. I read a Lynch interview from the past year or so where he said something about (paraphrasing) stopping things right before they end, as a way of giving audiences room to dream. And it just ends so abruptly, it really feels like there is something missing.

I'm not gonna go through them but there are myriad reasons why we pretty much know there is no significant "unused footage" beyond maybe some extended/alternate takes that all shows have. There is no Missing Pieces 2 coming. It's a myth.

This seems more assuring than his earlier responses

Here in Europe, most of the lockdowns are being largely lifted. Anyone have some insight on the American movie industry starting up again?

Unfortunately cases are spiking in the U.S., generally, and certainly in California, and some of the stepped reopenings are being frozen where they are, and in some cases partially reversed.

For the time being I'd refrain from investing all of your money on this being the case. Here's hoping.

I did find myself wondering about how Mr C went about keeping up with the internet and mobile devices since the early 90s. We could be doing with a spin-off series, where C/Bob spends time reading Wired, and hanging out chatting with staff in phone shops.

Whether the Daily Beast are reliable or not I don't know, but they feature an interview with DL and SS with small tidbits that might give hope that something new is on the horizon:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/david-lyn ... ref=scroll

On the BLM situation:
"Both Lynch and Sutherland say that America’s ongoing racial reckoning, including clarion calls for increased diversity in front of and behind the camera, has caused them to consider ways to better center BIPOC voices in their work, a subject that Lynch’s features have long interrogated.

“It makes me think about what I’ve been doing and how I can improve in that respect,” reflects Sutherland. She says that, while many David Lynch productions are staffed with long-time Lynch collaborators like Duwayne Dunham, Peter Deming, and Alfredo Ponce, she plans to “give opportunities that haven’t been there in the past” when new projects can begin safely crewing up.

"Lynch, for his part, says that while “it would be wrong to put someone in a role for any other reason than they are perfect for the part,” he also “understands the frustration if people aren’t welcome to the table.” The rule that guides him now after more than five decades of filmmaking is simply to find fellow human beings willing to “follow the ideas” as they come up during production. If that’s the case, “I’m open for anything and I would work with anyone if they were right for the part. Zero problem,” he says.

On the David Lynch Theatre/weather reports project:
"Eventually, Sutherland and Lynch acknowledge, time will run out for this particular project as well, with the director offering cryptically that “there might be things coming along that would mean less time could be spent on the channel.”
