What’s Peter Jackson Doing After ‘The Hobbit’? Tintin He Hopes
It might be old news that Peter Jackson would be directing the sequel to Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. Truth be told, the movie might still be a hard sell with its motion capture style and if it bombs we may not see a series of these fantastic looking films.
Jackson has confirmed in a recent interview with THR that he plans to direct the sequel to Tintin after he’s finished directing The Hobbit
Spielberg said that they still have yet to get the greenlight, but the studios have allowed them to develop it to the point where it’s ready to go. He explained “[Sony and Paramount] were willing to do one movie with us and then give us the financial wherewithal to develop a script, do all the visual storyboards and get it really in launch position. So we can launch pretty quickly on a second movie. The script is already written.”
The sequel will be called The Adventures Of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun, and the script to the sequel in being written by Anthony Horowitz creator of the Alex Rider series of young-adult spy novels. The plot for the film involves Tintin and his BFF Captain Haddock investigating a strange illness that has befallen seven explorers who have discovered an Incan tomb, before traveling to Peru to get to the bottom of the mystery.
The movie is being released in Europe this week; it’s bound to do well. America on the other hand…we will wait and see.
