Hergé Studios announced today that DreamWorks has confirmed the studio will be exercising their option to produce a series of films based on famed Belgian cartoon series “The Adventures of Tintin.”
Dreamworks will now enter into pre-production on the film, which should be in theaters in about two years.
No further information was disclosed regarding the type of film to be produced, live action, animation or computer-generated, or which books will be adapted.
Nick Rodwell of Hergé added that “if movie No. 1 works, we will continue.”
DreamWorks’ Steven Spielberg first acquired the rights to the character back in 1983 and later re-established the option.
