David Lynch - Dune: The Extended Lynch Edition



Pre-production and concept-


We are beginning to discuss this project and all of us that are involved at one time or another has created and edit of it.
What we are discussing is creating a Extended theatrical edit of the film. This edit will include the extras footage from the telvision cut as well as some of the extra deleted scenes that have been released on the latest DVD.
This version, much like the Highlander II Extended will include many differences.

We will be using an early script/ draft as a blueprint for this edition.

- The theatrical audio will be used unless impossible (note: there are some footage from the television cut that has some beautiful audio, after some research we have concluded that it may have been originally intended in some seems)

- The theatrical video will be throughout

- The blue within blue eyes will be rotoscoped on all extras footage (note: we are also going to enhance some of the eyes, some scenes are too dark blue, others are light blue, we will make all the eyes look the same)

- Colors of the desert will be enchanced so that all the sand matches the Televison and theatrical and deleted footage.

- Extensive reasearch is being done by Oldbiff85/ myself on the direction David Lynch was going before the theatrical release. (Note: I am know this movie like the back of my hand, however we are digging for more)

- Version that will be used:

Audio: French Theatrical Version, American Televsion DVD release.
German Paradise Group Restored television version, German theatrical Version. and a few other versions of the televsion cut and theatrical bits from various versions.

Video:
French Theatrical DVD Version, American Television DVD release
German Paradise Group Restored television version, German theatrical Version. and a few other versions of the televsion cut and theatrical bits from various versions.


And much, much more. This is just the tip of all.

ADM did a great job but we are taking it steps further. He even states himeself that this was something if someone wanted to go further, he wouldn't mind.
Actually we are using Fanfiltrations as a blueprint, is was really good!!



We want to restore effects and add the original score.

This sounds suh-weet.

I wish Lynch would just sack-up and release his cut. I'm sure that he could use the money to help finance his self-released DVDs.

This sounds very interesting!
I've just re-watched the Sci-Fi miniseries this weekend and I will be watching one of the edits of the film this week. I've got the Fanfiltration and the ADM edits. Does anyone know what are the differences between the two?

This project has been put on hold for anyone that was interested.
We are trying to get the best versions available to do this.

We are working on completion of another project that was put on hold earlier. The project that we are working onis a little less time consuming and frankly we needed a break after the Halloween 5, Highlander II restorations and edits and DVDs, geesh!!!!! (which took over a year to complete)

Status: DUNE: TBA
but it will happen

I loved the trailer and it really got me geared up!

ADMs edit aimed to get everything available as one movie and it looks like yours would be more a more coherent one.

A new edit has just been added at fanedit.org which also goes by the script.  Not had the chance to grab it yet, but was just wondering if anyone here has seen it.

I am TOO excited for this project! I was going to try something like this on my own eventually, but im sure whatever you guys have put together is far superior to what I could have acheived lol. Again, I am TOO excited for this release.

If the trailer is any indication of the final product this will be truly epic.

All the dune novel fans and frank herbert fans will love this, well you can at least count me interested.

Finally a cut of the film that does Justice to the master of dune's legacy, as well as to please all Lynch fans.

Yeah, this definitely looks cool. I'm psyched for a widescreen edit that finally rotoscopes the eyes.

I used to be very active on this forum. I’m not really anymore. Hi everybody. You’re all awesome. Keep up the good work.

All eyes are digitally enhanced for this widescreen release.

I can't wait! I'm still waiting for the ultimate edition of this very underrated movie.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that ADM's edition used the new remastered DVD of the TV cut as source, while Fanfilration used the old release. I've only seen the adm edit, so I can't say myself, but since you said you are uing Fanfiltration's edit as base for yours, you may want to look into that.

I've yet to ever watch this film, would you guys recommend the "Third Stage" thing you've created to be the first way I see it?
