Steven Spielberg Reveals <i>Tintin 2</i> Details

Though The Adventures of Tintin was shut out of the Academy Award nominations, save Best Original Score, the film was a smash at the box office. And now Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are ready to go ahead with the sequel.

Spielberg talked to Total Film about Tintin 2 and revealed “Peter [Jackson]’s doing it. I wanted to do it, but Peter has to because we made a deal.”

The deal was that Spielberg would direct the first film, Jackson would direct the second and if a third film was to be filmed they would figure it out in due course. Spielberg also stated that Jackson would start Tintin 2 immediately after finishing principal photography on The Hobbit.

Spielberg wouldn’t say which books the film would be based on, but he said “We have completed a story outline now. We have a writer on it. I’m just not declaring what it is. It will be more than one book, but no more than two.”
