Fight for FWWM deleted scenes

For most Twin Peaks fans, the holy grail - that thing that we all desire and, so far, have not attained - is the set of deleted scenes from "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" that David Lynch hand picked.

For those who aren't familiar with this story, Lynch reportedly shot about twice the amount of footage for "Fire Walk With Me" that was used in the final cut of the film. Many of the scenes that were cut from the movie featured characters from the series who ended up not making it into the finished film. Needless to say, Peaks fans are fascinated with the idea of seeing what other familiar faces from the town of Twin Peaks were doing before Laura Palmer died.

Lynch hand-picked about a hour's worth of these scenes to be edited and scored, and that work has been done. The hope is that MK2, the company that now owns the rights to the film, will include this set of deleted scenes in a new DVD release.

A movement has been afoot for some time to try to get MK2 to move forward, and you can help.
