The Adventures Of Tintin sequel to shoot next year?
Peter Jackson looks like he’s going to squeeze in the sequel to Tintin amongst his work on the next two Hobbit movies…
You’ve got to hand it to Peter Jackson, the man knows how to keep busy. With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arriving in cinemas worldwide this week, he’s got the small matter of two more Hobbit movies to deliver in the next eighteen months. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug and The Hobbit: There And Back Again are due in December 2013 and July 2014 respectively (presumably with each also getting an extended DVD/Blu-ray release), and while most of the physical production work is done, there’s an awful lot of post-production to get through.
You might, therefore, conclude that Peter Jackson has no time in his schedule to shoot the mooted follow-up to The Adventures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Unicorn. The idea was that Spielberg directed the first Tintin film, Jackson did the second, and by the sounds of it they arm wrestle to decide who gets the third.
Jackson, however, has found space it seems to get Tintin 2 moving. He’s revealed that he’s looking to film the live action performance capture material at some point next year on the new film. Again, there’s then hefty post-production work involved, and the new Tintin film wouldn’t make it to cinemas until 2015.
A busy man, then. More news on Tintin 2 as we hear it, of course…
