The fate of the Twin Peaks remake may be in jeopardy today as director David Lynch has announced he's pulling out of the project.
“After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done,” the 69-year-old revealed via Twitter on Sunday, April 5.

"This weekend I started to call actors to let them know I would not be directing. 'Twin Peaks' may still be very much alive at Showtime. I love the world of 'Twin Peaks' and wish things could have worked out differently," he added in subsequent tweets.

Showtime first announced plans for the network to reboot the show — which previously aired on ABC from April 1990 to June 1991 — back in January.
Soon after, Mark Frost and David Lynch signed on to create the new show and announced original star Kyle MacLachlan (Special Agent Dale Cooper) would reprise his role on the hit series.

According to a statement released by the network, Showtime is still optimistic the 'Twin Peaks' remake will still happen with or without Lynch's participation.
“Showtime also loves the world of 'Twin Peaks' and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm," the statement read.
