‘Twin Peaks’ 2017 Confirms Naomi Watts, Tom Sizemore and David Lynch … Again
The secrecy of Twin Peaks can surely drive fans to madness, thus far only confirming a premiere in early 2017, but there’s good news. Not only has Naomi Watts been confirmed to reunite with creator David Lynch for the Showtime revival, but Lynch too will reprise his on-camera role, among other additions.
Per Deadline, Watts has reportedly accepted a role first rumored back in October, though Showtime predictably had no official comment on hers, or Sizemore’s potential characters. Additionally, Lynch is said to reprise his original series role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole.
David Lynch and Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost wrote the scripts, with Lynch confirmed to direct all episodes of the revival series, however many that turns out to be. Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti and stars Madchen Amick and Dana Ashbrook have all been heavily rumored, along with Sherilyn Fenn, Miguel Ferrer, David Patrick Kelly, Richard Beymer and new additions Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Forster, Peter Sarsgaard, Robert Knepper, Amanda Seyfried and Balthazar Getty.
The original Twin Peaks saw Agent Dale Cooper arriving in the titular town to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, only to find the mystery ran far deeper than he could ever expect, with a touch of the supernatural. The new iteration will pick up 25 years after the Season 2 finale in 1991, which saw MacLachlan’s Agent Cooper in a Black Lodge limbo.
Showtime may come forth with additional Twin Peaks details for 2017 soon, but what do we make of the latest additions?
