Ray Wise Confirms TWIN PEAKS Blu-Ray Promo Directed by David Lynch
Leland's a babe in the woods, with a large hole where his conscience used to be, but apparently that's a "yes" to a big Twin Peaks rumor.
During a recent interview with Fangoria for the home video release of Big Ass Spider!, actor Ray Wise has confirmed recent rumors that Twin Peaks co-creator David Lynch has filmed a promo for the upcoming release of Twin Peaks on Blu-Ray. Wise played attorney Leland Palmer on the series, father of the murdered and secretly troubled teenager Laura Palmer.
"Yeah, we [shot the promo for the Blu-ray] two days ago," Wise said to Fangoria. "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."
This follows on a Bleeding Cool report earlier this month of a casting call for the promo. Here's the casting call listed in the article:
Hot Caucasian Girl – Brunette or Redheads Only. To play waitress, 18-27. Must have an amazing body, busty, very period looking face.
Also, The Digital Bits posted some details on the Blu-Ray set four days after the Bleeding Cool piece, saying that Paramount in Australia announced the Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery set for April 30th, including both ABC television seasons and the prequel film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. However, they note that Lynch is continuing to work on new special features content and the United States release could end up being something this summer. But at least it is happening again.
And for those familiar with the series, March 25, 2014 will be exactly 25 years since Laura Palmer met Special Agent Dale Cooper in the Black Lodge and told him that she would see him again in twenty-five years. The scene aired during the show's television finale on June 10, 1991, but in terms of story, the event took place on March 25, 1989.
