David Lynch has joined the cast of Steven Spielberg’s upcoming film ‘The Fabelmans’.

The film will mark the first collaboration between the two acclaimed filmmakers who rose to prominence in the 1970s, but Lynch’s role remains a closely guarded secret.

David has directed films such as ‘The Elephant Man’, the original ‘Dune’ and ‘Mulholland Drive’. He is also behind the television series “Twin Peaks”. He’s also filled acting gigs as FBI Agent Gordon Cole in “Twin Peaks” and other credits include appearances on “Family Guy” and “The Cleveland Show.”

Spielberg is currently finishing post-production work on ‘The Fabelmans’, which is slated for release in November.

Plot details remain under wraps, but the film is described as a semi-autobiographical project that draws inspiration from when Spielberg was growing up in Arizona.

Lynch joins a cast that already includes stars such as Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Paul Dano, Julia Butters and newcomer Gabriel LaBelle.

LaBelle plays budding filmmaker Sonny — a character inspired by the director of “Jaws” — with Williams and Dano taking roles inspired by Spielberg’s parents. Rogen’s role would also be influenced by Spielberg’s uncle.

The deeply personal nature of the project means that Spielberg co-wrote the screenplay with his frequent collaborator Tony Kushner. This is the director’s first screenplay credit since the 2001 film “AI Artificial Intelligence.”

Judd Hirsch, Sam Rechner, Oakes Fegley, Chloe East, Jeannie Berlin, Robin Bartlett, Jonathan Hadary and Isabelle Kusman.

Spielberg has often talked about how his upbringing in Arizona inspired many of his films – from stories to characters. The project will mark the first time viewers will have the opportunity to get perspective on the filmmaker behind blockbusters such as “ET the Extra-Terrestrial” and the “Indiana Jones” franchise.
