Lynch Returns...

StudioCanal is behind the upcoming project from David Lynch entitled INLAND EMPIRE. He has apparently been filming for 2 years on the project and the best part is that it is shot entirely on digital video. "I started working in DV for my Website, and I fell in love with the medium. It's unbelievable, the freedom and the incredible different possibilities it affords, in shooting and in post-production." Lynch continues, "For me, there's no way back to film. I'm done with it. I love abstraction. Film is a beautiful medium, but it's very slow and you don't get a chance to try a lot of different things. With DV, you get those chances. And in post-production, if you can think it, you can do it."

The film stars Laura Dern, Harry Dean Stanton, & Jeremy Irons. Details are scarce, but "It's about a film within a film" and "...about a woman in trouble, a mystery" Shooting has recently begun in and around LA, but the most interesting part is that Lynch shot a great deal of the film in Poland with local actors. I can’t wait to check this out. According to press, StudioCanal wants it released next year in time for Cannes, but Lynch said, "Making a film is a beautiful mystery, you go deep into the wood, and you don't want to come out of that wood, but the time is coming very soon when I will have to."
