USA Today has an interview with Peter Jackson where he mentions "The Lord of the Rings" among other things.
Jackson revealed that he still wants to develop an Ultimate "Lord of the Rings" DVD Collection.
The set will included the three extended versions (not combined into one film) and will be released in a few 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.
The infamous bleeper reel show to cast during the wrap party would also be present.
