David Lynch is returning to Twin Peaks?

For those still craving 'A damn fine coffee and a piece of cherry pie' from the Double R Diner, David Lynch has a surprise in store... and it has taken a mere 25 years to come to fruition.

The cult-film director is gearing up to return to the mill town of Twin Peaks, as the 1990 TV series looks to be getting the conclusion it deserves after two and a half decades in limbo.
The series, which was abruptly cancelled in 1991, made mention of its possible return in an episode, when the spirit of murdered beauty queen Laura Palmer whispered to FBI Agent Dale Cooper that she would see him again in 25 years.

The primetime drama was set in 1989... so it looks like Laura might make good on that promise.
Lynch is setting up to shoot new footage for series, and a casting call for the upcoming production reads: 'TWIN PEAKS PROMO. Directed by David Lynch. Shoots in Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 7, 2014.
'Prob a six-hour or less day. Rate is 150/8. You must live in LA to submit. I don’t think SAG has jurisdiction on this, so SAG and NON can submit. I have called SAG to double check this and I am awaiting a call back to confirm.
'HOT Caucasian girl, BRUNETTE OR REDHEADS ONLY, to play waitress. Age 18-27. MUST have an amazing body. Busty, very period looking face."

Although a lot of news sources have picked up on this story, I think it's quite dubious. Apparently Mark Frost (the co-creator of Twin Peaks) has already denied this rumour. However, I'd really like to think that there is something going on here, at least until mr. Lynch himself comments.
And in any case, couldn't miss this opportunity for a TP post. Share your childhood BOB trauma, ONTDers!
