Fire Island writer, executive producer, and lead actor Joel Kim Booster recently took to Instagram to share which deleted scenes from the film he wishes had stayed in the final cut of the movie.
Directed by Andrew Ahn (Driveways, Spa Night, This Close), Hulu’s Fire Island clocks in at an exact 1h45min – which is a pretty standard runtime for a summertime romantic comedy. Alas, given the cultural significance of a film starring gay AAPI leads and all-queer storylines, it’s understandable that a lot of other moments were written and even filmed but had to be left in the cutting room floor for the final edit.
Thankfully, Booster has now shared which deleted scenes fans missed out on while watching Fire Island. Overall, this gives them a clearer idea of which moments happened in-between certain scenes even if the actual movie didn’t have enough room for these interactions to stay in the edit. And who knows – maybe a director’s cut version of Fire Island could come out in the future to include these particular scenes!
Scroll through to find out which deleted scenes Booster wishes had stayed in the final cut of Fire Island, which is now streaming on Hulu.
