Peter Jackson Says Tintin 2 Is Next
After the third Hobbit film, of course...

Tintin, The Secret Of The Unicorn

Even someone like Peter Jackson, with all the resources at his disposal, can’t make more hours in the day. So while the man behind the Lord Of The Rings trilogy and the current Hobbit films said in 2012 that he wanted to get the second Tintin adventure out in 2015, events have conspired to derail that. Still, Jackson remains committed to the adventurous boy reporter’s stories and has now said he’ll work on the new Tintin film once The Hobbit: There And Back Again is complete next year.

Talking with Italian movie site BadTaste at the premiere of The Desolation Of Smaug, Jackson reaffirmed his commitment. “As soon as I’m free of The Hobbit, I’ll be going back into doing Tintin. It was held up by The Hobbit, but we have every intention of doing another Tintin movie and it’s just waiting on me to be done with these Hobbit movies.”

The first film – The Secret Of The Unicorn – was directed by Jackson’s partner-in-Tintin, Steven Spielberg, and while the pair have both talked about progress on the next film, nothing has seen the light of day thanks to Jackson’s Hobbit commitments. So if you were eagerly awaiting the new Tintin… Just go on waiting. Still, Jackson has also said he wants to take a break from big movies once the Hobbit films are safely complete, so we do wonder whether the delay will keep getting bigger…
