Twin Peaks might be getting a revival, but it'll be missing one crucial piece - David Lynch. The iconic director has just announced that he won't be helming the project, citing financial disagreements. Not over his own compensation - Lynch apparently disapproves of the budget.

David Lynch - and his truly spectacular hair - will be absent from the Twin Peaks set.

Writing on Twitter, Lynch said he had not been given enough money "to do the script in the way I felt it needed to be done".

Without Lynch, this might not be the 90s nostalgia fest we've all been rooting for. The director's departure casts doubt on the entire production. The auteur, whose credits include Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, created the cult drama with Mark Frost in the 1990s. The revival was commissioned by Showtime last October. The original series, which tells the story of a quiet town, shaken by the murder of schoolgirl Laura Palmer, won three Golden Globe awards in 1991, including best TV series and best actor for Kyle MacLachlan.
