Herge Studios, the publisher for ‘Tintin,’ made a comment Tuesday alluding that Peter Jackson was going to take over directing the first ‘Tintin’ adaptation from Spielberg.
‘Tintin,’ is the famous comic created by Hergé, and about an adventurous Belgian reporter named Tintin. The books were translated for the world wide audience.
Reps from boths camps insisted that while Jackson remains attached to direct the sequel, he will only be producing the first film, with Spielberg directing. The film will be his first project since the new “Indiana Jones’ movie.
The studio has confirmed that the basis of the first film will be the two-part comics “The Secret of the Unicorn,” and “Red Rackham’s Treasure,” published in 1942 and 1944.
The film will be made with motion-capture technology a la ‘Polar Express.’ It stars Thomas Sangster as Tintin, and Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock.
