What would "Twin Peaks" be without a weird little mystery?
With signs posted for filming Monday outside Grand Prospect Hall, the owner of the venue confirmed to DNAinfo that a crew of hundreds was on-site for the project, but he had not yet seen legendary David Lynch.
“We are under total occupation,” Grand Prospect Hall owner Michael Halkias said.
On Tuesday, after fans on the Internet raised tweets of skepticism, Halkias declined to comment further.
A Showtime spokeswoman also declined to comment directly on whether the shoot at Grand Prospect Hall was for the return of the "Blue Velvet" director's series, but instead referred to a social media statement that said: "Shooting starts in September. The donut truck is loaded late August. A coffee cup will indeed come through a window. #TwinPeaks.”
A source at the reception hall Tuesday said no one at the venue was allowed to say what was shooting there, because they had all signed secrecy agreements.
A spokeswoman for the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment said the shoot was for a commercial that applied for its shooting permits under the title "Twin Peaks."
"According to the production, they are unrelated to the Showtime series," the spokeswoman said.
A phone call to the contact person on the "No Parking" signs posted outside Grand Prospect Hall also went unanswered Tuesday. The project name on the sign was "Imperial Woodpecker 'Twin Peaks'." A call and email to Imperial Woodpecker — a company that makes TV ads for major companies including Nike, Adidas, and Gatorade — were not immediately returned Tuesday.
