Millions of people are excitedly awaiting the release of the first Lord of the Rings movie - but few more so than its director Peter Jackson.

"I waited a long, long time for someone to make a movie of The Lord of the Rings," says Jackson.

"Now I am delighted and extremely honoured that I was the person to make it."

Jackson's movie Fellowship of the Rings is an adaptation of the first book from fantasy writer JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy.

But it has long been known that Jackson made all three books into films before releasing the first.

And, he says, he had no problem finding enthusiasm for such an epic project.

"The Lord of the Rings is such a great a story and is ultimately very cinematic. It has everything that you could want in a movie," says the director.

"But we also absolutely respect the book. It has spectacle and epic scale but it is ultimately so intimate."

Tolkien wrote his fantasy about goblins, hobbits and dwarfs in the mid 1950s.

Jackson says he is confident he has found the right approach to adaptating Tolkien's work.

"We haven't gone out of our way to make this a fantasy film - just as Tolkien didn't really think of this as fantasy," Jackson explains.

"He made this as a mythology for Britain. He mourned the fact that unlike places such as Scandinavia, Britain didn't really have an ancient mythology.

"We have set out to try to honour that and try to make it more an historical, rather than fantasy, film."

"Lord of the Rings had a disadvantage for us in that everyone knew the story. But we wanted to have as many surprises as possible," says Jackson.

"Controlling what the world knows about and sees from the film has been very important to the experience of going to see the movie in December."

What we do know is that Fellowship of the Rings has been filmed in Jackson's native land New Zealand.

We also know that it stars Sir Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Liv Tyler and Elijah Wood.

Madonna has revealed she is "angry" about the publication of Andrew Morton's biography of her life.

"It's not a well-written book," she told BBC Radio 1.

"We all know he wrote it for financial gain and the truth had little to do with it."

Madonna said that when Morton's requests for information started arriving with her friends she asked them to ignore him.

"He really went through my Rolodex and that part was really annoying, and I ended up writing him a letter saying, 'I'm not interested in you writing this book, I don't want to have anything to do with it - and please leave my friends alone'."

The singer said that she had even sent Morton a book of philosophy - The Power of Kabbalah - to try to dissuade him from continuing.

"It's a beginner's crash course in what it's all about - that eventually in some way shape or form it would come back round to him, but he either didn't read it or didn't care."
