    Jackson on an Ultimate LOTR DVD Collection
    Source: USA Today January 14, 2005


    USA Today spoke with "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy director Peter Jackson on the set of King Kong where he revealed that they still want to develop an Ultimate "Lord of the Rings" DVD Collection.

    The set will included the three extended versions (not combined into one film) and likely won't arrive in stores for another two or three years.

    "I don't want to add more footage," Jackson says. "There's as much in there as we want. Eventually you are just going to go backward and weaken the films." Instead, he would prefer to simply show the unused deleted scenes and explain why they were cut.

    Jackson would also like to include feature-lenght documentaries, made by longtime associate Costa Botes, on the making of the movies. "There are no commentary or interviews. It's like a reality TV show," Jackson says.

    He adds that the bloopers, or "bleepers" as Jackson calls them, would also be a new feature. They were previously only shown to the major cast members as a farewell tribute after they finished filming.

    IIRC he said in late 2003 or ealry 2004 that he was hoping to do a hidef release in 2006 after completing Kong. Makes sense, HD should be readily available by Christmas next year.
