: Apparently DDL has announced that the Boxer will be his last movie.
: He intends to take some time off to get back into himself and to work on his relationship with his girlfriend (is there a marriage looming perhaps?). The clip stated that he is not necessarily retiring, but
: that he has NO plans for appearing in any more films or in public for
: some time to come.
: Does anybody know if anything particular happened during filming that would sway him in this direction?
: At any rate, apparently there is no hope of seeing DDL do the rest of the series.....or any other films in the near (or distant?) future.

Good morning, Billy:
I'm planning on being very very good and calm today, so I
will respond to your post in a totally sane manner. Yes,
DD-L did announce he was taking time off from films ...
he says the same thing every time he finishes a film, so
who knows? His wife is pregnant, and that may have
something to do with it. He also injured his back very
seriously while filming The Boxer and has had surgery
on it -- so no more leaping around the woods for him for
awhile. He is also almost certifiably looney at times (and
I say this with the greatest affection) so you never know
what he'll decide to do next.
A brief aside to "Andrea" -- yes, dear -- I'm for real. Thanks
for sharing. It's brilliant wit like yours that makes life worthwhile.
