Last January, during one of his regular YouTube weather reports, David Lynch promised his next video would come out an announcement. That was all he said and at the time we explained that due to the fact that this was one thing David Lynch announced during a daily YouTube vlog saying if it’s sunny outside, David Lynch was literally on everything could have pointed out. It could have been something exciting, such as the mysterious Netflix show we heard about, or it could have been something perfectly normal that would be funny or interesting just because of the odd appeal of its completely banal weather reports. It ended to be the lattersure, but we want you to keep that story in mind as we get down to the actual news here.
That’s the news diversity has heard from “two well-informed sources” that David Lynch will premiere a secret and “completely off-the-radar” feature film in Cannes this May. All we know about this rumored film is that Laura Dern will be in it (“either in a cameo or in a supporting role”), but that’s about as useful as hearing Michael Caine make a token appearance in a Christopher Nolan film. David Lynch has his troupe of actors and Laura Dern is arguably the best, so of course she’s going to be in this secret film. Heck, we wouldn’t be surprised if the film got called up Laura Dern and she played every role.
diversity suspects it could also be “an extended pilot” of the mysterious Netflix show mentioned above, but no one knows for sure. What we do know is that Cannes is happening in about a month, from May 17th to May 28th, so we don’t have to wait much longer.
But hey, if you’re in Cannes and that Lynch movie isn’t real (or it’s some kind of quirky thing like its weather reports)at least you can see the premiere of light year or Top Gun: Maverick or elvis. Those are nice consolation prizes, aren’t they? (The actual consolation prize would be that of David Cronenberg crimes of the futurecertainly, but we chose these other three films for comedic effect because they have very little in common with the work of David Lynch.)
