David Lynch's New Movie -Hopefully in 2006

It is entitled Inland Empire, and is in a way the opposite of Mullholland Drive since it's the other extreme (east)of Cali. The cast includes Laura Dern (Wild at Heart), Jeremy Irons, Justin Theroux (from Mullholland Drive), Harry Dean Stanton, and a bunch of other actors Lynch will not confirm. He won't say much about it besides that it is a movie about a woman in trouble (sound familiar?). He shot the whole thing on DV, and is apparently in love with the medium to the point that he is abandoning film altogether. He shot the movie without a script. I consider his last two movies to be sheer brilliance, and though I am worried that this one will lack the structure to connect with the audience, I am anxiously awaiting the release of this movie. It is rumored to be premiering at Cannes, a US release date would be some time after that...
