Just read that Peter Jackson and the crew will be making an ext extended version of the trilogy on the future. To me that is total BS. I can understand the need to keep the movie short for theatrical release but this is just a money grab if they do it. The whole point of the extended version was an opprotunity for PJ to not have any time restraints and to include all parts that were ment to be in the film.
Im still gonna buy it probably but it is still BS.
Read about it in Egm its a vidio game mag that was talking about a new RPG that will be coming out soon and how they have tons of more foottage that has more side stories that were not included in the film and that they could not talk about what was left out because of a future three movie box set possible and how PJ wanted LOTR to be around for along time.
