 Originally, yes I think I've heard something like that before, I'm not sure whether I believe it, and if there was one, I doubt anybody will every see or hear of it again, it's not something Night would really do, (even though he did let the deleted scenes from Sixth Sense be showed on ABC).

They say this one has a surprise ending.

 Yeah, there was another ending. One of drafts for the script was leaked online (supposedly through Ashton Kutcher or Kirsten Dunsts camp). It was probably the original Final Shooting Script since  everything is the same except for the end. You can read it for yourself here:
http://www.horrorlair.com/movies/village_the.html' target='_blank'>The Village Script

I've only read the last several pages to see Major changes.
Minor changes I believe are things like, Ivy TELLS Christof and Finton Coin the secret about the creatures.

Now, it seems like this is a draft or two off of the final movie that we all know and love, but supposedely this ending WAS shot, and the ending that made the movie was re-shot a couple of months later. I personally would absolutely love to one day be able to see a cut of the movie with this ending! (even though its not better).

 I fixed the link. You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the file as well (I think).

once again:

 if ivy tells christof and finton the secret then why would they abandon her?  or didn't they?

the ending didn't really seem very different, even though they were different characters they had a lot of the same lines.  

i like the ending where we see ivy gets back to the village, i think it would be weird for it not to have that bit...i'm not a fan of the old one...i can see why they changed it.
OH MY GOD...i was at a placebo concert last night and i was second row standing right in front of brian...then i got steve's drumstick!  HELL YEAH!!!

the answer is somewhere in that script.

me too. this way the whole movie doesn't revolve around the twist, the twist is only part of the story.

There are several Hitchcock movies that use both methods.
For example:
 Psycho is simular to the final version of The Village with a tappered ending, and the earlier version of The Village is more like Vertigo, where the movie ends and you have to sit for a second and process what you just witnessed.

 Actually, I own one of the original versions of the script (with the original truck-driver ending) and I must say I like that ending better. It was a lot weirder. But for the most part, the script and the movie are word for word from each other. Pretty weird script. Good movie.

 what's up with the line, "crazy Ducking white people" though?  why the need for specificity of ethnicity?

 I like the "Ducking white people" line. Of course some redneck will take it the wrong way and scream reverse racism. :P
