David Lynch teases a new project announcement

Filmmaker David Lynch is brewing a new project and is holding suspense till the cat is out of the bag. Sharing a cryptic video message on his X handle on the Memorial Day in the US.

In a 21-second video shared on Monday, Lynch can be heard saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, something is coming along... for you to see and hear. And it will be coming along on June 5.”

The director’s last television series, Twin Peaks: The Return, wrapped in 2017 on Showtime.

Lynch did not indicate what he was talking about, but earlier this year, he told Deadline that he hoped to find backers for an animated project titled Snootworld. Reportedly, the project has been in development for 20 years.

He was working on the script along with former Tim Burton collaborator Caroline Thompson, who wrote projects including The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, and the 1991 film The Addams Family. "Snoots", Lynch described, are tiny creatures who have a ritual transition at age eight, at which time they get tinier, and they’re sent away for a year so they are protected. It remains to be seen if the project would be an update on Snootworld.

Lynch is best known for his films The Elephant Man (1980), Blue Velvet (1986) and Mulholland Drive (2001), all of which received Academy Award nominations for Best Director. He received an Honorary Academy Award in 2019, while his Wild at Heart (1990) won the Palme d'Or at Cannes.
