Steven Spielberg Provides An Update on the Second Tintin Film, Teases Mystery Project!

Steven Spielberg provides an update on the second Tintin film, Peter Jackson's involvement in it, and teases a future mystery project.



In a recent interview with The New Zealand Herald’s Timeout publication, Steven Spielberg provided an update on Peter Jackson’s film schedule for the foreseeable future. The American filmmaker says that Peter Jackson is currently working on a top-secret project for his company Amblin Partners, and Dreamworks. Once completed, they will collaborate on the second Tintin film together.

"Peter was so busy with The Hobbit that it took him away from Tintin and he's doing another film for my company now. It's a secret, nobody knows about it. Then after that he'll do Tintin."

For those who didn’t know, the original plans for the Tintin sequel involved Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg exchanging roles, with Jackson directing and Spielberg producing. There was also plans in place for both Spielberg and Jackson to co-direct the threequel, if it ever enters production. Production on the film was planned to begin around 2011/ 2012, with Kathleen Kennedy involved as a producer. However, with Guillermo Del Toro departing The Hobbit around this time, Jackson was called in to take the reins, inevitably delaying the Tintin sequel by a number of years.



Assuming Andy Serkis does reprise his role as Captain Haddock in the sequel along with John Williams scoring the film, then production could be further delayed as both are currently involved in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Considering that Kathleen Kennedy is the current president of Lucasfilm and hard at work on the upcoming Star Wars and Indiana Jones films, chances are her overall role will be much smaller, or even almost non-existent.

The Tintin sequel is apparently currently titled The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun and will adapt two stories, much like the original entry in the film franchise.
