    Default Spielberg's The Adventures of Tin-Tin

    After being announced a couple of years ago, they finally seem to be making headway on the CGI motion capture Tin-Tin trilogy based on the Red Rackham storyline. The first film will be based on Secret of the Unicorn and will be written by Stephen Moffat, Joe Cornish, and Edgar Wright.

    The cast includes:

    Tin-Tin - Jamie Bell
    Thomson\Thompson - Simon Pegg\Nick Frost
    Captain Haddock -Andy Serkis
    Red Rackham - Daniel Craig

    The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg with it's followup to be directed by Peter Jackson. The animation will be done by Jackson's WETA.

    Wait are we talking about "The adventures of Tin-Tin" Where that guy goes and solves mysteries and sometimes has semi-interesting action sequences?

    Not to mention the cornerstone of my childhood.

    I can't really imagine how this would look with stop-motion, but since no one seems to want to touch traditional animation with a 30 foot when it comes to theatrical productions these days, I guess I'll take what I can get.

    why do you guys call him Tin-Tin? it's Tintin in only one word.

    anyway, daniel craig as red rackham could be awesome. there has been a couple french (maybe belgian) movies about Tintin but they were lame original stories and were only some bad tv-movies, so let's see how it can turn out. but spielberg and jackson are not people i expect big things from, seeing how spielberg raped indy lately and how i didn't think the lotr trilogy was THAT well done.

    Considering I loved the Nelvana series on HBO, I really hope the Tintin movies turn out well. Herge was a pioneer of comics in Belgium (well, the Franco-Belgian style) and around the world and he deserves respect if done correctly.

    Belgian.


    I was never really into Tintin, Asterix and Lucky Luke were more of my thing but this has potential to be awesome.

    I didn't know about this, but it's very exciting.

    I read all the stories and watched the animated series on Nickelodeon when I was like... 10.

    While I can't picture Andy Serkis('s voice) as Captain Haddock, it seems natural to expect great things from him.

    I read about the movie project in The Economist about two months ago. Their forecast as I recall was something along the lines of "Americans aren't going to get it" and I pretty much agree.

    I'm also not surprised people felt it was French given how the author tried to distance the Belgian origin.

    I don't think this movie will be taken seriously in the Philippines either.

    Not that I'm arguing, but what exactly do they/you mean? The sleuthing to catch rascally drug smugglers? The chase scenes in old-fashiony cars? The alcoholic character in what is essentially a children's comic?

    I think what he means is that Tintin really has no history or connection to anyone outside of Europe. While there it is one of the key (if not THE key) to an entire comic industry based in Belgium and France (trust me, I've been to the museum in Brussels and they're building a Herge museum opening this year), the Americans may not get a lot of it even if a lot of the themes and stories in the series are rather universal. (heck, Speilberg got the idea for doing this after someone suggested that Indiana Jones was a lot like Tintin) The movies I think could be successful but it's not going to make Americans really read the comics or appreciate what the Europeans do in the character.

    Heck, the only real Franco-Belgian comic that even has relevance in the states are the Smurfs...and that was sort of bastardized thanks to Hanna-Barbera.

    I grew up watching Tintin on Nickelodeon. I think my generation is the only one who's really aware of it in America.

    I've started reading the comics, and the artwork is unbelievably good.

    Oh yeah - heard about this a good while back when it was
    first announced they'd be made (at Cannes, was it?)

    Steven Moffat will do very well, if some of you want to see the quality of his writing,
    he has written several episodes of Doctor Who & will be the Main Writer/Head Writer for S5 onwards,
    he also did a modern day retelling of Jekyll, and various other projects !

    His main style of writing is very dark grimm plots e.g. (Dr. Who/Jekyll)

    But I'm sure he'll change to adapt, infact he'll have to soon,
    As he's the head showrunner for DWho S5 !

    Empire Magazine scored the first glimpse of Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg's adaptation of the Herge comics.

    The magazine's cover re-creates an iconic Tintin image. The other two are from the movie itself.

    The movie is being done in CGI with actors such as Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in an effort to faithfully capture Herge's clean linework and not just have actors shoehorned into the part.

    We still have a long time to wait; the movie doesn't come out until Dec. 28. 2011.

    After seeing Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Coraline, and Walking Dead, my faith in book-to-film/TV projects is being steadly restored. If that leaked Deadpool script comes to pass, then color me optomistic.

    But all we have to go on so far are two screenshots and a voice cast. Plenty of room for hope.

    Uhm... you are aware that theres thousands of Marvel comics and they've messed themselves up just fine over the years, right?

    also messed up dragonball

    No, these creators actually have respect for the property. Spielburg? Zemekis? Jackson? The man that brought us Roger Rabbit and Back to the Future I'll always give the benefit of the doubt... even if his mo-cap stuff is weird.

    And the writer, Moffatt, gave us the best Doctor Who eps in some time, so he's a talent.
