I'd prefer they worked together, but something tells me they don't even agree on what happened in the final scene of Season 3.
I'm pretty sure Lynch doesn't have a definitive answer to what happened there.

But didn’t say in an interview that the final scene at the Palmer house was decided long time ago.
My feeling is that they deliberately left a lot of plot points open for a possible sequel

From what I've read on here, I think the only thing they didn't completely connect on was the Richard/Lynda thing. The rest of the ending was mostly collaborative (wasn't it?), though Lynch may have taken things a bit further in the filming or added little touches here and there.

Interesting comments by Dern that would suggest they're being cautious about starting production to avoid costly stoppages if there's another Covid-19 flare-up.

If, of course, she's referring referring Lynch at all when saying "friends."

I think what Soolsma and others mean is that L/F may not agree (or even know in Lynch’s case) what the scream “means,” what happens after the lights go out, etc. i think for Lynch it’s a more intuitive/dreamlike thing, whereas Frost went a more conventional sci-fi direction in his book that I doubt Lynch would follow in a S4.

One of the most enlightening bits in the Bushman book vis a vis the L/F collaboration is when Mark says he was writing TR to be modeled on the Odyssey, but he avoided explicitly saying this to Lynch, because Lynch wasn’t really familiar with it. Really gives you a sense of how they communicate (or don’t) while working together.

Hi Everyone!

Been a lurker here for a while and finally decided to make an account. I keep coming back to a comment by Mark Frost in an interview with Variety in 2017 after The Final Dossier came out. He said "David and I talked for a year before we ever started working, so there’s no doubt that some of those ideas [in the new book] came up during that period of time. But also, you know, it was [me saying], “David, you go make the show, and do what you do best, and I’m gonna do that with the books.” It sounds as though there is precedent for Mark Frost leaving TP Productions so that David could go on for a season 4

Here's the link to the article if anyone wants to continue reading https://variety.com/2017/tv/news/mark-f ... 202603360/

Glad to be apart of the forum!

Welcome to the board, DougieJones - great first post and I love your profile picture. Yeah, I think maybe MF feels he said all he had to say about TP with his books - or maybe he's planning another book to coincide with a continuation, but in either scenario feels content enough to step back from any filmed versions of the show.

Haha thank you! It's one of my favorite pictures. I think Mark Frost is done with Twin Peaks as it is, the title of The Final Dossier pretty much sums it up for me. I keep going back and forth on whether or not this will be a season 4 but Lynch saying that if there will be one it would be in 2021 lines up with whatever Wisteria is. Also in a few interviews Kyle says that the sole arbitrator of Twin Peaks is Lynch and not both Lynch and Frost. Maybe he knows something behind the scenes about the TP Productions filings?

I was starting to think it was a completely new project, but then all this talk of MF transferring management to Lynch has me wondering. Right now I'm leaning towards some sort of anthology/TP-related/adjacent series as I've said before, a series of mini-movies like the original rumour stated, maybe one is following Carrie and Richard, another might feature some of the cast in TP, another is Antelope, another Ronnie Rocket, then something entirely new again, etc. etc.

Is there any more to it than in fatecolossal's tweets? If not then I can't get excited by this as she could literally be talking about anyone she works with. I know there's the 'shaved head for a Lynch role' stuff but I'm starting to get weary of joining all these imaginary dots together and nothing happening.

COVID is likely going to be with us forever unfortunately. I guess showbiz just needs to work out how to operate around it.

yeah, I saw the fate colassal tweet about Dern. an account called @TheHeartBroke says she basically confirmed Unrecorded/Wisteria
by saying working with friends.. maybe..

that rules out a Vice Admiral Holdo prequel probably...

but could also mean Noah Baumbach's White Noise project maybe. dunno.

It is interesting that she and Kyle both have nothing really listed on IMDB as upcoming projects (apart from JP3 for Dern in post-production). I know it's not an accurate site, but often you'd see a lot of projects in "announced" or "pre-production" status, and I have seen such projects for both of them in the past, but right now their respective pages have no projects like this listed - and not just because of the pandemic as a lot of other actors have a lot of upcoming projects listed.

But, even though I have fun with the links and speculation myself, I too am growing a bit weary of it. When do you all think we'll either a) get announcement or b) such a big hint that it leaves little doubt the project is forthcoming and whether it's TP-related or not?
