The guy is 74. The face shrinks and sags with age. I’m not seeing weight loss there so much as natural aging. But again, none of us are doctors, and in any event, no doctor would diagnose him off of photos. No offense to Agent Earle, who I know did not have any bad intentions, but there’s something ghoulish about this line of conversation. Can we move on?

Speculating on one's health from photo ops is a bit .. skeevy. But, he definitely lost a lot of weight in his face over the past couple years (seems to be mostly the past year or so though). Whether that's a health issue, which noticeable weight loss can be, a diet, more exercise, who the hell knows. He could be healthy as a horse, I'm not a doctor. But, just for sake of people asking why people seem to think he looks frail. Here's hoping he lives past 100.

Thanks, Rudagger, that's what I had in mind. I guess it's in the eye of the beholder, anyway, I mean I obviously don't have his medical chart, but I can't shake the feeling the man's not well (for instance, the already mentioned Clint Eastwood, who's some 15 years older than Lynch, looks way more sprightly than Lynch). And for the record, I wish that we'll still be having this conversation 20 years from now (not in the ghoulish sense by any means :) ). And now I'm moving on.

I'm not a Lethal Weapon fan lol so I'm ignorant on this, but is that really true? I googled it and there's apparently a remark that a LW5 is "in the works" and that Donner is "coming back", but the guy hasn't directed a movie since 2006. Seems more likely that since he is 90 it's more of a producer credit, or possibly he comes on board as a co-writer? Action movies are hellish to shoot.

On Lynch, yeah, there was a discussion about his health a few months back and I am sadly in the camp that I think he looks a little worse for wear.

Literally every person still in the running to become President of the United States for the next 4 to 8 years is around Lynch's age or older. At one point that job might have been considered more grueling than writing and directing a limited series.

I get it has CONFIRMED in all caps in this tabloid headline, but if you read the article (or even better the actual source) you'll see that there isn't even a finished screenplay - much less a greenlit movie. That being said, it would be fun to see one more Richard Donner film.

I wonder if Bob Iger resigning as CEO might clear the way for Disney to pick up Twin Peaks?

Please no. They have their fingers in every pie there is at this point. CBS seems an ideal distributor that respects L/F’s complete autonomy.

Disney is only interested in making money

The only thing I want from Disney vis a vis Lynch properties is a proper damn disc of The Straight Story, with voluminous special features.

I was about to say, didn't Disney distribute The Straight Story? I always completely forget about it in my mental chronology of Lynch material. I always see this path from Fire Walk With Me through Lost Highway to Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire, forgetting that The Straight Story is there in the middle. It is such an outstanding film, and it should be hailed as a modern classic at every turn.

The Daily Mail for those who aren't British is pretty much the worst newspaper in the history of mankind. There is a whole website devoted to things that The Daily Mail have said cause cancer, and the things it says cure it. The fun is finding things on both lists.

Getting back to topic, it feels like not much is happening on the S$ gossip and rumour front. I still feel like something is imminent though. :-D

Disney also produced the initial Mulholland Drive pilot, via their Touchstone subsidiary, and (as recounted in Room to Dream) screwed Lynch creatively and almost prevented the world from ever seeing the project.
