El director Peter Jackson, famoso por su trilogia The Lord of The Rings, ha sido confirmado como el director de la proximal aventura/secuela de Tintin. The Adventures of Tintin, fue dirigida por Steven Spielberg. Tan pronto termine sus trabajo con The Hobbit, Jackson afirma que le sigue Tintin 2.
Aquí tenemos a Spielberg confirmando esto:
“Peter [Jackson]’s doing it. I wanted to do it, but Peter has to because we made a deal. I said, ‘I’ll direct the first one, you direct the second one,’” Spielberg explained. “And Peter, of course, is going to do it right after he finishes photography on The Hobbit. He’ll go right into the 31, 21 days of performance capture.”
Spielberg stops short of confirming which Herge books they’ll use as inspiration for the plot of a second Tintin, though the end of the first film makes it pretty clear that Tintin (Jamie Bell) and drunken Capt. Haddock (Andy Serkis) would be heading to the bottom of the ocean to retrieve a fortune in pirate gold. Unless, of course, they don’t. Nothing’s set in stone.
A sequel was set in stone, however, given the fact that Tintin banked more than $370 million at the global box office. Granted, only $75.8M of that came from the U.S., but Herge’s adventurer always came with a built-in international audience, and it’s that demographic Jackson and Spielberg will aim to satisfy when they embark on another journey.
