The Cable Guy (1996) Workprint with Russian audio voiceover
#1
Hey guys,
So I've found the workprint of The Cable Guy and it runs approximately 6 minutes longer than the theatrical cut. Unfortunately, it's overlapped with a Russian voiceover with English audio in the background.

Is there any way to fix this?

Afraid there isn't if the Russian audio's been mixed into the English audio track. How many audio channels are there on the file? Unless the Russian voiceover is only on a single audio channel which can be removed, you're SOL.

Only fix would be to find an English workprint, or to reconstruct the film as well as possible using the audio from the BD/DVD, alongside deleted scenes (if they match up the new scenes on the workprint).

Can you tell us more about the workprint? What seems to be added on?

With a friend I've attempted to resync it but there are various alternate takes of scenes. There's only one audio track so I guess I'm shit out of luck Sad

The workprint has deleted scenes which some are on the DVD and others that aren't in the workprint. I can tell you the answering machine scene is extended by a few more seconds. I originally found it on a site called VK about a year or so ago. It's really rare for one thing as I've never heard of a workprint existing. I only wish there was a way to fix it or someone who has a copy in English.

perhaps subtitle the scenes that you don't have English audio for?

That would be an option. I don't know how to make subtitles. If anyone wants to try be my guest.
