Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

He copyrighted 13 scripts. Granted, it could be that each script is going to be split into two parts, but 25 seems like a LOT of episodes. 18 took a toll in him, and he was five years younger then. Is the 25 coming from the Reddit user who posted the budget? I can’t keep track of where this info cam...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

So it could be closer to $50-60 million?
I would guess that just the addition of the Washington shoot would bring it close to $50. I’m not sure how much of the full year of post is or isn’t included in that $41 number. If that’s not in there, that would bring it significantly higher.

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

Wikipedia says $41 million, I know it's not reliable but it has a source - a PDF document. Haven't read it so no idea if it's accurate, but I think I saw that figure quoted on here too. Edit - This is the document - https://www.filmla.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/2017_TV_Production_Study_v5_WEB.p...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

Random thought. If the budget truly is $85 million that would indicate it's probably Twin Peaks or else a major big-budget Lynch original, right? That's double the budget of the Return and something they'd only spend if it was going to be something big. (Kyle said he's "prepping for something ...

Right, the “real” Dougie was the guy in the fat suit.

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I think the change in shirt color was a deliberate wardrobe choice, not due to camera/lighting. His tie is also completely different between E29 and TR. I get the sense that Lynch generally feels Coop should always be in black suit-white shirt-black tie, but he was stuck with the blue shirt and stri...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

IIRC, they didn’t actually blow up the car (probably not allowed in that residential neighborhood). In the behind the scenes footage, it looks like they sliced up the hero car (or maybe a double), then lit the car, shrapnel and “corpses” on fire. This results in an awkward cut to the little boy at t...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I don’t think The Returns cheesy Cgi were for aesthetic reasons. I think they had some budget issues and due to which Lynch had to do most of the vfx. One one hand they have episode 8 with some amazing CGI and on the other we have some terrible muzzle flash CGI The company that did the “professiona...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I mean, Lynch thrives on small budgets in a way that few filmmakers do, but that doesn’t mean he actively seeks them out. He walked off the TR because he wanted a specific budget, whatever it was. Even back in the Pretty as a Picture documentary, I recall Deepak Nayar saying he would lie to Lynch ab...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I remember someone posted a brochure which mentioned the Returns budget which was around 40 million. Season 3 had almost 200 actors if I remember the cast list. It was shot at multiple locations , was 18 hours long . Wonder what 13 episodes with 85 million dollars from Lynch would look like. I’m 90...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

i think the $6mill per episode figure for conventional TV is based upon each episode has different writers, a different director, sometimes a different DP, editor, and each episode (or sometimes two at a time at HBO) is blocked out with a rehearsal period, each episode becomes it's own self contain...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

the 85 million budget figure i think came from someone on Reddit. it's really hard to keep a production that big under wraps, it would employ hundreds of people and need a lot of resources. i dunno. i'm skeptical on that budget. I don’t recall where this number came from, and if it’s some random Re...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

Also if the series is being shot in a studio I’m guessing there might be some heavy CGI involved "Twin Peaks"(1990) was mostly shot in a studio, "Twin Peaks"(2017) was mostly shot in a studio. The latter is not true. Out of a seven-month principal shoot, only the final month was...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I’m just thinking on the info that we have gotten saying that it’s for a big streaming giant presumably Netflix with a budget of 85 million. If the budget part is true, then it has to be something on a large scale. Bigger than Season 3. Also if the series is being shot in a studio I’m guessing ther...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

It’s certainly possible that Cori and other crew members are participating in virtual set “walk-throughs” with Lynch to see if he wants any changes, before he actually comes to set. Production Weekly did list a May start date as others have said. I don’t believe any set/production designer was seen ...
