David Lynch has been invited to direct a ‘Twin Peaks’ porn parody

It would totally be on brand.

Last week, David Lynch walked away from a highly anticipated deal that would have brought Lynch’s cult classic Twin Peaks back to our TV screens, 25 years after it originally aired. But don’t count out a Lynch-helmed Twin Peaks revamp just yet: Porn director Lee Roy Myers has extended a formal invitation to Lynch to direct a porn parody (NSFW) of the show instead.

Myers’s movie studio, WoodRocket (NSFW), is well-known in the adult entertainment world for its pornographic parodies of pop culture staples. There’s The Humper Games, Sailor Poon, Game of Bones, and so on. So what would be better than adding a Lynch-approved, Lynch-directed parody of his groundbreaking 1990 television series to the WoodRocket oeuvre?

“Maybe it’s not necessarily a murder that kicks things off, but a crime of nymphomania.”

“[David Lynch] would definitely be a dream get,” Myers told the Daily Dot on the phone. “I had nightmares when I saw Elephant Man, then Eraserhead after that. I grew up thinking ‘This is some scary, strange stuff.’ I used to watch Twin Peaks with my parents and it only got weirder and weirder. But what’s weirder than the porn we make at WoodRocket?”

As for what a Twin Peaks porno would actually look like, Myers says he would completely defer to Lynch to bring his X-rated vision to life. But if Myers were to take up the mantle himself, he said, “You have to have Laura Palmer discovered, and there can’t be high schoolers. These need to be barely legal but legal people. And maybe it’s not necessarily a murder that kicks things off, but a crime of nymphomania.”

Because WoodRocket doesn’t have a direct line to Lynch, the company made its offer in a public blog post. But Myers remains optimistic that Lynch will at the very least respond. “You never know what will happen in the age of social media, who will reach out to who,” said Myers. “We put [this offer] out there and our hopes are there.”

So can we expect a Lynch-helmed production of Twin Cheeks? (Yes, that is indeed Myers’ working title.) Probably not. But then again, it would be just like David Lynch to defy our expectations at every turn.
