Jackson Eyes Rings' End - Sci Fi Wire
Lord of the Rings writer-producer-director Peter Jackson told SCI FI Wire that he's not sure how he'll react when his epic film trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece book is finally complete. "It will be seven years I'll have been with it when we're done," Jackson said in an interview. "I don't know how I'll feel."
Jackson, who's currently prepping an extended DVD edition of the upcoming second film, The Two Towers, and is getting ready to edit and do additional shooting for the third, The Return of the King, added, "Put a circle around that question, and I'll answer it in a year. I suspect that I'm going to be quite sad. I suspect that I'm going to be relieved. I think that by that stage I'll also know what I'm going to do next, and so I'll have something else to think about. It will probably feel like the end of a relationship. I've never been through a relationship that's come to an end or broken up in that way, but I suspect that this must be something like that. I've had a seven-year, intense and emotional relationship that's suddenly sort of coming to an end. I can sense that there will be a vacuum there, a sense of loss."
