The director has not directed a feature since 2006's Inland Empire, in which Dern starred as an actress who loses her mind in the course of seeking a comeback role.
"I will be working with David Lynch when I'm 80," Dern promised. "He is cooking, he's cooking up trouble, and I will be part of that trouble.
"He's the consummate renaissance man, he just makes art wherever he can get his hands on it. But film, ultimately, I know is his great love, and I think he will always circle back to it. He's definitely cooking."
"Even if I had a big idea, the world is different now," Lynch said of his future as a director last year. »
Shortly after the release of his masterpiece Mulholland Drive, David Lynch took a little downtime to create an early incarnation of the webseries: the aptly titled Dumbland. A profane series of vignettes centered around an irascible man, the bizarrely hilarious episodes feature Lynch’s own chicken scratch and characteristically strong sound design. You can watch all eight of them above, and be sure to stick around for the dancing ants featured in the final episode. »

Ah, David Lynch, the highest of high-brows, the maker of swooning, subtle, surrealist masterpieces rich in cinematic lore and strange sexual undertones. And also of crudely animated shorts full of fart jokes, profuse swearing, obscene non-sequiturs and bestiality gags. Huh?No, really, this is a thing, and you can watch it all below. Back in 2002, post-“Mulholland Drive” and arguably at the height of his fame, Lynch chose to savor the moment by drawing and releasing online a short series called “Dumbland,” in which a crude, slobbish, Homer Simpson-like figure roundly abuses the sketchy (in both senses) world around him. The eight episodes together amount to half an hour or so of ultra-crude humor and ultra-simple animation. If this doesn't really seem very Lynchian, well, no, it isn't really. It has sloppily drawn hyper-violence, vague nastiness and incredibly low production values, the last of which is something particularly alien to Lynch. »
