Tintin sequel lines up 2015 release
Jackson lays out his schedule.
A sequel to 2011’s The Adventures of Tintin has always been on the cards, but Peter Jackson revealed that capturing performances should be done next year with a release planned for 2015. Speaking with Belgian news site RTBF, Jackson confirmed that Anthony Horowitz is currently writing the script and that Jackson would be joining him next week to work on it. The story originally intended to adapt the Prisoners of the Sun story, but it has also been reported that the sequel will involve The Calculus Affair and perhaps other stories from Herge.

Jackson takes over the mantle from Steven Spielberg who will produce the second film. However, Jackson’s plate is fairly full at the moment. While much of the work on the second Tintin film will be done in post-production, Jackson has two more films for The Hobbit trilogy to complete with the final part, There And Back Again, to be released in the summer of 2014. It’s not unfeasible that he will be able to work on these projects simultaneously, but it’s going to be a busy period for Jackson.

The Adventures of Tintin was released in 2011 to mixed reviews. It didn’t perform overly well in North America, but fared far better in international box offices. Still, a sequel has always been planned with Jackson and Spielberg trading places. Now we just have to see if Jackson can squeeze this adventurous tale into his crowded schedule.
