What's David Lynch's next project? According to screenwriter/filmmaker Alan Greenberg, it's his very own, long-in-limbo script, Love In Vain, inspired by/about blues legend Robert Johnson.
Speaking from his home in Portland, Oregon, in advance of his appearance at Art Center/South Florida in Miami Beach this weekend, the 62-year-old Greenberg broke the news with the casual but excited air of a man who has patience to spare. After all, he has been waiting for this moment for 30 years.
"Years went, and people like Martin Scorsese were signed to do it for Warner Brothers. Then, later, HBO was going to do it. It's the greatest film never made, and now finally, this week, we're closing the deal on the financing, and David's standing by all excited," Greenberg claims.
UPDATE: A spokesperson for Lynch denies any plans are underway. More information after the jump.
