Laura Dern Says David Lynch Is Cooking Up Another Film For Her

During the promotions for Inland Empire, David Lynch sat around with a cow, leveraging its all-round bovine loveliness in a call for the Academy and other awards groups to recognise Laura Dern. Here’s a video of that, just so you don’t think I’m making it up.

It’s clear that Lynch recognises Dern’s talents. In each of their three films together he gave her a better part, from Blue Velvet through Wild at Heart and into Inland Empire. The latter is a mess and rather too slipshod for its delicate construction to come off, but it sure gave Dern a good part.

Nice to know, then, that Lynch and Dern are “cooking” up a new collaboration. She mentioned the film to The LA Times, but the only other detail she shares is that there’s no script as yet.

I doubt she literally means script. I doubt Inland Empire literally had a script. Bits of a script, maybe. A structure. An outline. Lots of prose. Pictures of flies sellotaped to beef chops, maybe. But a script? I’m not so sure about that.

But even if they base their film on the graffiti in a public toilet, It’ll be good to see Lynch and Dern back together again.

The profile in the LA Times, incidentally, was published to promote the return of Dern’s HBO show Enlightened. I think I shall give that one a punt. An uncomfortable comedy drama about a woman recovering from a total breakdown certainly sounds like my kind of thing.
