Screenwriter Antony Horowitz Has Finished The Script For The Next TINTIN Movie


TintinBannerThings on the next installment of The Adventures of Tintin have remained a little too quiet for fans liking here recently. Last we had heard, director Peter Jackson said he would focus his full attention on the movie after he was done with Middle Earth and The Hobbit movies. However, that could take him all the way until Christmas of this year.

But rest easy fans, because we do have some good news on the project. While Jackson may not be able to work on the film for some time, that hasn’t stopped the script from being written. Screenwriter Antony Horowitz revealed that he has completed his script for the movie. Horowitz told the DailyMail, “I’ve just finished writing the new Tintin film  for Steven Spielberg.”

Ttintin-squaredhe next Tintin movie will feature a bit of a shake up in the creative department. Like stated above Peter Jackson will be director on this film, unlike the first which had Steven Spielberg directing. Spielberg will still be producing the project however, which he had hoped would have a Christmas of 2015 release date.

Given that Jackson wont start work on the film until around Christmas of this year, it’s hard to imagine the 2015 release date becoming a reality even though the last movie only took a month to shoot. The real work comes in post production which took The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn around a year and a half to complete.

With the Advances in modern technology though, there is a possibility that time could be trimmed. As much as fans, myself included, want another Tintin film, we will just have to be patient and let the process play its self out.
