Two legendary directors, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, are teaming up to present another animated Tintin adventure. The Hobbit director has confirmed that the young Belgian reporter and his faithful fox terrier will eventually be back with us.
As Indiwire reports,The Adventures of Tintin made $373 million worldwide in 2011 and fans are still longing for a sequel after its cliffhanger ending. The first adventure was directed by and was to helm the shooting of the second chapter this year, but he had been too busy directing the Hobbit trilogy so far. The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun was originally to come out in 2015, which now seems unlikely; but at least Jackson is still adamant on making the movie. He told "BadTaste.It" that the movie is still in motion and as soon as he is finished on Middle-Earth, he will concentrate on Herge's comics character. He said:
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.
According to the site, the upcoming performance-capture-animation is going to adapt the story of both the Prisoners Of The Sun and the The Calculus Affair into one film.
With The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies expected to be released next winter, it seems unlikely that The Adventures of Tintin 2 will come out in 2015 as originally planed, (not to mention the Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens 2015 Christmas release too.) However, Jackson still seems determined to make the movie, so let's hope that we can find out what happens with that cliffhanger soon.
