Anyone Interested in doing an Extended cut of Raiders of the Lost Ark?

Hey all I was wondering has anyone made an exuded cut of raiders with all the existing scenes that have been released. I myself madea version but my editing software froze after it reaches the flying wing scene.

So I wonder if anyone else will have a Crack at it.

So the scenes that I would use for the edit (wh÷n I made my edit) was 9 scenes from the On set documentary

1: Sapito falls into the pit - this scene has a cut shot where it cuts to spliberg and I simply cut it out, it looked a little junky but with some fixing you could probably fix it,

2: After Class Studies - this scene is complete, just needs some cleaning up.

3: Marion’s Kiss - This scene should be placed before indy walks up to Marion, takes a turn and leaves.

4: Cairo Swordsman Fight - now this is somewhat hard to place if you intend to keep the funniest moment in the film. But I’m sure there’s a way to figure it out.

5: Sallah in a state of panic - this shot would be place after indy sees the location of the well of souls in the map room, which the next shot shows sallah going into a tent to make a rope.

6: The Crypt - there’s a brief scene where indy grabs Marion to clam her down and show her the exit out

7: Indy Kocks out an Arab - this scene you would have to cut out the exiting of the well of souls in the film to this alternate version, and I’m sure you guys know in the movie, when they are running down to the flying wing, there was an Arab laying at the exit of the well.

8: On the Periscope - now this was the hardest scene to place but I think I found a way to, you simply have to have it layer over the map shot of when there going to the island and have it faded to look like it’s part of the transition.

9: Belloq Prepares for the ritual - now for the last, this shot is immediately after you see the island at night, and would need some cleaning up as well.

The only other scene I didn`t include was the extend drinking contest scene, it had a voice over by Spielberg and felt it would slow it down. And some of the other scenes that I listed here do have voice over, so those would have to be replaced by something. The cut should run about 1:58:27

It can be done but they are only a few seconds of scenes for TOD and LC.
