After THE HOBBIT Peter Jackson To Focus His Attention On THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN Sequel
One of my favorite movies from a couple of years back was The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of The Unicorn. The movie was relativity a success at the box office and was met with mixed reviews by critics. However, a sequel was never in doubt. It was known that Steven Spielberg was handing off directing duties to Peter Jackson, who served as an executive producer on the first, but it isn’t know when Jackson would begin work on the movie. Last we heard from Jackson he was shooting for a Christmas 2015 release date, but since then he has gone radio silence on the topic.
Until now that is. Speaking with BadTaste.It Jackson spoke about when he hopes to be able to focus his attention on the follow up. “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,” He explained.
It has been rumored that the next Tintin movie will consist of two of the famous Herge books. One being The Seven Crystal Balls and the other being Prisoners of The Sun. However, Spielberg has stated in past interviews that Prisoners of The Sun is NOT one of the books they will be adapting. The Blue Lotus has also been tossed out their, but Spielberg mentioned that would be more likely suited for the third film. Whatever the case may be the film, which will probably return stars Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost, will likely being kicking off production very soon.
