Yesterday was a real roller coaster in the hearts of moviegoers around the world. First, variety reported through two relevant sources that filmmaker David Lynch was shooting a secret movie to present at the Cannes Film Festival earlier in the day. Then, hours later, it was Lynch himself who, through Entertainment Weekly, denied the information, slamming all the hopes that the information had generated for us. But is this part of a strategy so that his appearance in the French film competition is a surprise, or does the director of Twin Peaks have nothing on his hands?
The thing is that the way in which the Montana filmmaker has denied the information could be part of the script of one of his films. To point out that he was not going to release any film, the director of A True Story took a more extended trip than the protagonist of that road movie: “That’s totally a rumor. So you already know. It’s not going to happen. I don’t have any projects. I have nothing in Cannes. It’s a shame. One has been bundled that people have thought: ‘Oh, that would be nice.’ But there is something new, but it is not mine. I don’t know whose it is.“
The hopes of the fans of the dreamlike filmmaker are sustained around the mystery of that premiere that he himself does not claim to know, but… if you are going to deny your participation, why to feed the hype about an unknown film that is going to premiere in Cannes? ? “They say there’s something new at Cannes, and they don’t say whose it is, and some people have thought it was my film, but it’s not. So it’s time to wait and see whose it is,” Lynch told EW.
According to himself, he is sculpting, painting, and supervising the remastering of Lost Highway. If the director really premiered their work at the festival, we would have a meeting of great renown in the mecca of French cinema with George Mille and David Cronenberg, who do have an official premiere confirmed at Cannes. And if it were a series instead of a movie? Be that as it may, Lynch hasn’t directed a feature film since 2006’s Inland Empire with his fetish actress Laura Dern.
