No MULHOLLAND DRIVE sequel according to Laura Harring; new film to “manifest soon”

Now comes the back peddling.

Just about a month ago, Laura Harring came out saying that she was “very sure” that we would soon be seeing a sequel to David Lynch’s masterpiece MULHOLLAND DRIVE, which at that time was “being born.” However cryptic that may have been, she has now spoken to MovieLine, and has stepped back from those comments:

"You know what? I didn’t mean to do that. The truth is that David is always creating, and I’m in constant touch with him and his wife Emily. We just have such a good time. I didn’t mean to say what David is doing or not doing, but we definitely have talked about collaborating in the future. We’ve talked about it several times. I’ve heard a piece of music that I believe could be…[long pause] in one of his films. Please don’t get me in trouble, Kyle!"

However unsurprising as this step back truly may be, the true newsworthy piece of information came later in the interview, where the actress said that she knows that “There’s another film that’s going to manifest soon.” Lynch is not only an immensely gifted filmmaker, but one that needs to really make more films.  His last project was INLAND EMPIRE in 2006, and MULHOLLAND DRIVE before that in 2001.  Hopefully this manifesting film will come to light sooner rather than later, because it’s from the brain of one of cinema’s remaining true geniuses/provocateurs and I can't wait to check it out.

About Joshua Brunsting

Born in the tiny Michigan city known as Holland, and raised in the even smaller city known as Saugatuck, I have been a film geek for the majority of my life, and have known film was my passion ever since the final frame of THE LION KING. I’m a romantic with a thing for 60’s pop music (preferably French), John Keats poems, and an even bigger thing for film noir. Currently a Journalism Major at Grand Valley State University, I am using my love of film, and my deathly, ninja-like, skill behind the keyboard to slowly take over the world. When I’m not writing about or watching film, I’m listening to music, particularly from the likes of TV on the Radio, Best Coast, and Semi Precious Weapons. I play the ukulele, and I also have a deep and intense love for Gustavo Santaolalla and Ennio Morricone, but then again, who doesn’t. I was drum major for my high school marching band for two years, I’m one of the four people who actually watched Dollhouse, and my favorite film of all time is Godard’s BREATHLESS. I’m a wannabe screenwriter, a wild thing, a nerd, a geek, and most importantly, I’m a lover of film. Oh, and I want to be Captain Planet when I grow up.
