  Rings fans demand Saruman return
Updated 14 November 2003, 13.56
Christopher Lee
Fans of Lord of the Rings have started a petition to get Christopher Lee's scenes as evil wizard Saruman put back into the final film in the trilogy.

Director Peter Jackson has apparently removed Lee's seven minute fight scene from the start of Return of the King.

So Rings fan Matt Shuster set up an online petition to try to get what he thinks is a "bad decision" reversed.

So far, nearly 10,000 people have given their names in support of Lee's scene being put back in.

Peter Jackson, speaking on the web, has apparently said the missing scenes will be in the extended version of the film, to be released on DVD in 2004.

Shuster believes that this will make fans feel cheated by the version in cinemas.
