Peter Jackson Wants Tintin 2 For 2015
He'll look to shoot next year

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

Though the majority of his time at the moment is being spent either promoting the first part of The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey or working on the other two parts of the trilogy, Peter Jackson has not completely forgotten about animated boy reporter Tintin. Now comes word from the man himself that he has plans for making the second part of the trilogy he’s planning alongside Steven Spielberg.

In October last year, Spielberg said that the sequel – currently titled Prisoners Of The Sun and once more based on Herge’s writings – had been in development for a while. “Sony and Paramount were willing to do one movie with us and then give us the financial wherewithal to develop a script, do all the visual storyboards and get it really in launch position. So we can launch pretty quickly on a second movie. The script is already written,” he explained.

Of course, there’s no solid word on whether the studios have officially agreed to the shoot, but Jackson seems confident, revealing to Belgian journalists that the plan is to carve out some time next year while he fine-tunes the other Hobbit films to squeeze in the relatively brief performance capture shoot for the new Tintin adventure, which is then handed to the CG teams to work on. The aim is to have the film ready for 2015.

It remains to be seen if this all comes to pass, especially since Jackson also has to shoot additional Hobbit material to fill out the trilogy. But let’s face it: if any duo thinks they can get it done and deserve our faith, it’s Jackson and Spielberg.

Hmm...
I must admit, I'm not a fan of the way Hollywood gets its big directors to juggle so many different projects at once. Spielberg was working on TinTin and War horse at the same time, and I can't help but think that both films would have benefited from having more time focused on each. Also, please for the love of God, get them to change the artstyle for the next film. So much of my time spent watching the first Tin Tin film was being creeped out by just how freaky Captain Haddock looks. His f More
