Iâ€™m not a big fan of â€˜deleted scenesâ€™ â€“ in fact, Iâ€™ll usually skip over them in any DVDs supplementary materials section.
â€˜â€™Twin Peaks : Fire Walk With Meâ€™â€™ is different though â€“ Iâ€™d give the flesh from my left butt cheek to science to see some of those moments I missed out on when I checked out the film first-day at the Lumiere Cinema in Melbourne back in 1992. New Line ruined that film by deleting about 90 minutes-or-something from the finished cut, not to mention completing destroying the continuity and flow of the picture by doing so (Yes itâ€™ll still have been nutty â€“ just not as nutty) and by golly, we want it fixed!
A French company owns the rights to the deleted scenes and at one stage they intended to release them on a â€œFWWMâ€ DVD. Didnâ€™t happen.
In a new interview director David Lynch says heâ€™s hopefully we will see the new scenes (the scenes include more of Kiefer Sutherlandâ€™s character Sam Stanley, a humorous fist-fight featuring Chris Isaakâ€™s agent character Chester Desmond, as well as appearances by some of the showâ€™s most popular characters, like Big Ed and Sheriff Truman, whose scenes were ultimately cut from the released version) will one day see the light of day.
â€˜â€™ That, you know Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me is owned by a company called MK2 in France. And I spoke to them a couple of months ago, um, I’ve spoke to them several times about this, you know, I think it will happen, but maybe the financial crisis is you know, affecting that in some wayâ€™â€™, Lynch tells WNYC. â€˜â€™I’m not sure what’s going on. I’m pretty sure there’s 17 scenes in that at least but its been a while since we’ve looked into that.â€™â€™
