EXCL: Ray Wise Confirms “TWIN PEAKS” Lynch-directed Blu-ray PromoMovies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
It’s been 25 years (story-wise) since the world followed Agent Dale Cooper and his investigations into the surreal and horrifying town of TWIN PEAKS, breaking new ground in television and amassing a huge audience and enduring cult fanbase. Now, after a casting call for a TWIN PEAKS promo, purportedly directed by series co-creator David Lynch himself, rumors began to swell that we would see, however briefly, more of the PEAKS universe for the show’s upcoming Blu-ray release. This rumor was especially titillating as it would coincide with Laura Palmer’s posthumous sentiments to Agent Cooper and give the first new PEAKS to the generations that have discovered it in the years since its cancellation.
In a recent chat with Ray Wise for the home video release of BIG ASS SPIDER!, the actor who famously played Laura’s father Leland confirmed to FANGORIA that the promo has indeed been shot with Lynch behind the camera, and that there will in fact be a Blu-ray set for the series created by Lynch and Mark Frost!
“Yeah, we [shot the promo for the Blu-ray] two days ago,” Wise tells Fango. “It’s been done. I don’t know if I was supposed to leak that to anybody, but yeah, we did it and I’m not at liberty to say what was done. I can say that it’s going to be a big surprise.”
There you have it folks! But possibly even more enticing: if Ray Wise was a part of the promo, who else might we see?
