Jackson Gives Update On “Tintin” Sequel

Attending a recent premiere for “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” filmmaker Peter Jackson was asked to give a quick update on how his proposed sequel to “The Adventures of Tintin” film was progressing.

In an interview for BadTaste.It, Jackson says: “As soon as I’m free of The Hobbit, I’ll be going back into doing ‘Tintin.’ It was held up by The Hobbit, but we have every intention of doing another Tintin movie and it’s just waiting on me now to be done with these ‘Hobbit’ movies. Pesky Hobbit movies, get them out of the way so we can go back to Tintin.”

At last word, the two-part story “The Seven Crystal Balls” and “Prisoners of the Sun” would be the focus for the storyline of the “Tintin” sequel.
