OK, we liked Tintin. Is it ok to say that? We’re still not sure what way the public swayed on that one. And as such, we’d like to see the trilogy completed, even though nothing has moved forward or even really been mentioned since the first one came out.
Steven Spielberg, in an interview with The Times of India, got chatty about the next movie and the planned schedule for it (them): “Peter Jackson is directing the next one, I’m producing. We have a script and we’re going to start performance capture probably at the end of this year.
“Don’t hold me to it, but we’re hoping the film will come out around Christmas-time in 2015. We know which books we’re making, we can’t share that now but we’re combining two books which were always intended to be combined by Herge.” And for those fans of the source material, it appears The Blue Lotus would most likely end up being a part of the third film.
It seems that, for Tintin fans out there, The Blue Lotus will be one half of the third movie. So, what can we gather from this? Well, basically it seems that once Jackson gets done with that silly Hobbit nonsense (easy! – Ed) he’ll move back to Tintin. Good times.
