David Lynch will appear in his daughter’s film A Fall from Grace.
The eccentric director will reportedly tackle a role in Jennifer Lynch’s upcoming thriller. David Lynch will play the lead character’s father in the film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Lynch co-wrote A Fall from Grace with Eric Wilkinson. The director said she didn’t have her famous father in mind when she penned the script.
“I didn’t write the role with him in mind but I was thinking of him because he calls up so many powerful and yet fragile elements in my life and because this character is strong but broken down by dementia. So for me, it’s perfect.”
David Lynch told the website that he would be “putty” in the hands of his daughter. This is the first time she has directed her father in a film.
Cinema Blend explains that the Blue Velvet director will appear alongside Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Willow Shields, and Vincent D’Onofrio. Roth will play David Lynch’s son in A Fall from Grace.
David Lynch said he intends to donate some of his own money to the movie because he wants to see what Riley does next.
The Inland Empire director is reportedly piecing together a new project of his own. Although there are very few details about the movie currently making the rounds, David Lynch said he thinks people will “recognize” the film when they see it. He also described the script as “typically dark.”
Production on Jennifer Lynch’s A Fall from Grace is rumored to begin this summer. A release date for the film has not been set as of this writing.
