Director Baz Luhrmann planned several different endings to his new movie AUSTRALIA before making the final decision on the film's conclusion.
The moviemaker was recently rumoured to have scrapped the original finale - because test audiences found the story too sad.
Luhrmann vehemently denied the claims, insisting movie bosses would never be able to manipulate his work.
But the director has now revealed that he was torn over how to end the picture, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, because he had so many ideas on how the tale should be wrapped up.
He tells the New York Daily News, "I really don't want the other endings spoken about. There was another where Jackman and Kidman got married. I also shot a scene where the boy comes back and everybody's old."
