David Lynch Claims He’s Done Making Movies

After directing 10 features, including such classics as “Blue Velvet” and “Mulholland Drive,” David Lynch contends he’s likely finished making films.

“Things changed a lot,” the co-creator of “Twin Peaks” told The Sydney Morning Herald. “So many films were not doing well at the box office even though they might have been great films and the things that were doing well at the box office weren’t the things that I would want to do.”

If the 71-year-old Lynch sticks to his guns, that means his final film was “Inland Empire,” the 2006 drama about an actress (Laura Dern) who auditions for a comeback role, only to start to assume the identity of the character she’s playing.

The filmmaker made his feature directorial debut in 1977 with the surrealist body-horror film “Eraserhead,” which he followed in 1980 with the critically acclaimed “The Elephantman,” a historical drama that earned eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Of course, even if Lynch does walk away from filmmaking, fans still have plenty of his work to look forward to on television with the upcoming Showtime revival of “Twin Peaks.” Starring longtime Lynch collaborator Kyle MacLachlan as Agent Cooper, the eight-episode first season debuts May 21 on Showtime.
