Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are teaming to direct and produce three back-to-back features based on Georges Remi's beloved Belgian comic-strip hero Tintin for DreamWorks. Pics will be produced in full digital 3-D using performance capture technology.
The two filmmakers will each direct at least one of the movies; studio wouldn't say which director would helm the third. Kathleen Kennedy joins Spielberg and Jackson as a producer on the three films, which might be released through DreamWorks Animation.
Me too. Tintin, as cool as the original stories are, has always failed whenever someone has tried to update, adapt, or modernize him. And "boy adventurer and his dog" is not a genre that seems like it would resonate with modern audiences.
Still, it's Spielberg and Jackson, so I know better than to count them out.

I like that they're using John Williams' score and basically the same continuity. After what Singer did with X-Men, I have faith that he can get the job done, but I'm reserving any anxiety over whether it'll suck until I see the film.
