Lynch announces secretly-filmed movie

David Lynch recently had an interesting announcement, as reported by he's been working on a movie in Poland for the last two years, and no one seems to have noticed. How could this possibly have happened? I mean, I understand the general public not knowing about a current production, but shouldn't have at least one of those endless LA industry publications caught a whiff of it? Anyway, the film is titled THE INLAND EMPIRE (all-caps on purpose) and stars Laura Dern, Justin Theroux, Harry Dean Stanton, Jeremy Irons and others. The title comes from a suburb of Los Angeles (and why Lynch is filming a movie about an LA suburb in Poland is beyond me), and the whole thing's being shot on digital video.

Actually, this entire entry was an elaborate justification for quoting my favorite Lynch dialogue of all time: "Heinekin? F*** that s***! Pabst Blue Ribbon!"
