The now almost mythical unseen footage from David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Firewalk With Me movie may finally, finally be unveiled, according to Leland Palmer himself, Ray Wise, in a new interview with AICN.
Wise says the scenes will be included on the upcoming Twin Peaks Blu-Ray set, which we’ve heard a lot about lately, but this is the first mention of whether deleted footage from the feature film will be making an appearance.
And he doesn’t really sound unsure about it at all, so I guess it’s a sure thing, by his estimation:
When you saw David Lynch recently, were you two concocting more rumors to throw out on the internet?
RW: [laughs] Well, I’m sure more rumors will come out of it, but we were meeting to discuss and do some things for the new box set that’s coming out on Blu-ray. All the “Twin Peaks” episodes, including the pilot, also paired with FIRE WALK WITH ME, the prequel movie. So, all the “Twin Peaks” material is going to be in this new set, plus deleted scenes from FIRE WALK WITH ME.
Capone: Something like 40-some minutes of scenes is what I heard. Is that all going to be on there?
RW: Yeah, it’s going to happen. I don’t know what happened to be able to do it, I suppose it has something to do with the French producers. But, it’s happening. I guess the first cut of David’s film, FIRE WALK WITH ME, was probably around three-and-a-half hours long, maybe approaching four, we’ll probably see a lot of that material on the new set.
Capone: Did David say when it’s being released? I’d heard April for a while, but it seems like you’re not quite there yet.
RW: I don’t think it’s quite there yet, but it’s happening. It’s going to happen sooner rather than later.
