Star Wars: Episode III: Eveyone's favorite space opera director, George Lucas, is up to his old tricks again. After telling the world numerous times the past few years that the next Star Wars film (Episode III) will be the finally film in the series, he contradicted himself yet again in a story over at Fox News today:

Lucas also told me that he and Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson have become good friends, commiserating with each other in Australia and New Zealand on their shoots about making their two series. "Essentially, Peter is making three three-hour movies out of one book," Lucas said. "And I'm making nine two-hour movies from one book." Of course, Lucas wrote his own book, but the mythology harkens back to Lord of the Rings. "We discuss it a lot because they are similar in nature," said Lucas.
