    Hey All;
    Not sure if anyone has posted this here or not, but It appears we die-hard Peakers may have a LAST CHANNCE to see the much wanted deleted scenes for FWWM that are not going to be included on the New Line DVD. It appears that MK2, the French company that owns the deleted scenes, is going to put out their own DVD of FWWM this year. And, as they own the scenes in question, there may be a good chance that the deleted scenes will be included. Yes, I know that It will be Region 2, but maybe with a kind Email to MK2, they may be persuaded to make it a Region 0 release, like the recent TP Pilot DVD. And even if it's only a Region 2 release, you should still request it because once they have included it on their own DVD first, they may be persuaded to sell the righs later on. So we all win. (But I'd still like a Region 0 release.) From what I understand, they have already made very preliminary overtures to David Lynch about it, so right now it looks positive. So, please send those Emails to....

    Preferably in French, if you know it, but I imagine someone over there knows English. For further updates, you should all go here:

    If it's a French DVD, the disc will be in the PAL format regardless if it's Region 2 or 0.

    You will need to purchase a NTSC/PAL-capable player to view the disc.

    Who cares what Region it is. Once the scenes are edited and finihed by Lynch, then they will be available for MK2 o license to other companies.

    Send MK2 an email of support today !

    The scenes were never edited or transferred. That is why there was such a problem. Not only did New Line have to license them, but they also had to pay for them to be edited and mixed by Lynch.

    MK2 had no problem with licensing them to New Line. And even at a fair price. The whole negotiations was whether or not MK2 would share the expenses to edit them. MK2 agreed, but New Line felt that after everything was said and done, it was much too much to pay for plus having to pay for Lynchs to tkae 7 weeks out of his schedule to do it.

    So we are back to square one, EXCEPT, MK2 owns the footage, so there is no rights issues here. There are however budget issues with the editing and transfer costs again.

    Once this is done, then MK2 can license them already edited and ready for DVD.

    Lynch has mentioned in his Chatroom many times that New Line simply did not want to pay up after everything was said and done. New Line denies this and claims that they couldn't get past negotiations.

    Still, bottom of the line is if you want to have even a chance of these scenes getting released period, show your support.
    Let MK2 know.
