A little man from Mars has adventures on Earth. Another Lynch movie that will probably never see the light of day. But then again, Lynch has managed to get strange things produced before…

I don’t know enough about this script’s history to know if Lynch would ever dust this one off. I’m sure there are fans who’d like him to.

Mulholland Drive (TV Pilot)
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

by David Lynch
This doesn’t happen often. Lynch’s TV show was developed, the pilot was shot, and then dropped. (Not that unusual.) But then Lynch got funding to shoot some more scenes, re-edit the film, and release it theatrically. Not only did it work, it went on to win awards.

The original TV pilot can be found online, taken from VHS source material.

A run-down of the differences in the pilot can be found at mulholland-drive.net

There is a fanedit in the works to recut the pilot from HD source material. Details can be found at fanedit.org

Dune
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

by Alexandro Jodorowsky
In the mid 1970s, surrealist filmmaker Jodorowsky worked to put together his dream version of Dune – which would include many bizarre elements that author Frank Herbert understandably had problems with. He assembled a dream team of collaborators. French comic artist Moebius contributed some 3000 storyboards. British painter Christopher Foss and Swiss artist H.R. Giger were brought in as conceptual artists. Dan O’Bannon, who did sci-fi on the cheap with Dark Star, would do miniature effects. The film would be scored by Pink Floyd. And the mad Emperor of the Galaxy would be played by Salvador Dali. Unfortunately, big budget sci-fi was considered risky at the time. When Jodorowsky’s Dune fell apart, Moebius, Foss, O’Bannon, and Giger went on to work on Alien. Dune (directed by David Lynch) was eventually made after the success of the Star Wars movies, Alien, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
