Meanwhile earlier this year, Theroux said that even Lynch didn’t always understand the complicated plot developments of his own film.
“He’s a total outlier because he doesn’t answer your questions,” Theroux said of Lynch in an interview with IndieWire.
“[On] the first couple days of Mulholland Drive, I was course peppering him with a million questions like, ‘Well, why am I there? Who’s the cowboy? What’s going on? What reality are we in?’”
In Mulholland Drive Theroux played a director named Adam Kesher, who discovers that his wife is cheating on him.
Describing his experience on set, the actor said of Lynch: “I started asking him questions… When I finished a question, [he’d say], ‘You know, I don’t know, buddy. But let’s find out.’ He wasn’t being cute or cheeky or evasive; he genuinely didn’t know.
“He’s like, ‘I don’t know.’ It’s like you’re on an escalator into a cloud with him, you never know where the escalator lets off.”
The specific release date for the Mulholland Drive anniversary edition is yet to be confirmed – stay tuned for more details.
