ROTK 6 Hours?

Can this be true?

From [[]]:

Asfaloth wrote to say that the IMBD Pro magazine had some snippets about ROTK. “Rumors in early 2003 have it that the first cut is six hours long because of the amount of material from Tolkien’s original story that remains to be covered.” So I guess there’s still a little bit of work to be done in the editing suite.

Sounds about right! Now, go easy on the trimming, and we’ll still get a 4 1/2 hour epic to end the series with!!!!
