Peter Jackson Hopes to Shoot The Adventures of Tintin Sequel in 2013

December 12, 2012


It's been a full year since the Steven Spielberg-directed The Adventures of Tintin hit theaters and, while its long been said that Peter Jackson would take the reins for the sequel, the Hobbit director has been more than a little bit busy with his epic three-part J.R.R. Tolkien adaptation. Today, however, while speaking with Belgian site RTBF (via Bleeding Cool), Jackson revealed that his current hope is to begin shooting another Hergé-inspired adventure in 2013.

Although it is known that screenwriter Anthony Horowitz has been working on drafting the Tintin sequel, it is still unconfirmed exactly which published adventure (or adventures) will be adapted for the big screen.

"I've got several favorite stories," Jackson told ComingSoon.net back in 2009. "I like 'Seven Crystal Balls' and 'Prisoners of the Sun.' I like 'The Black Island.' I like 'The Calculus Affair'...the moon one[s] would be great to do as a third or fourth one."

Early rumors suggested that the two-part "Seven Crystal Balls" and "Prisoners of the Sun" would be the focus of the sequel. That was prior to the release of the first film, which ended up only adapting a single scene from the graphic sequel to "Secret of the Unicorn," "Red Rackham's Treasure," leaving much of that storyline available to bring to the screen. That particular book introduces Professor Cuthbert Calculus, a character that Spielberg himself told ComingSoon.net was likely to make an appearance in future films.

Jackson goes on to say that post-production on another Tintin will take two years so 2015 is likely the earliest we'll see the return of Tintin and Captain Haddock.
