The Adventures of Tintin Update


by Irma Arkus

Tintin has been one of most beloved comic book characters begging for a big screen interpretation.

This Belgian comic book by HergĂ© has been one of the international top sellers for decades, and I’ve spent many of my childhood summer days leafing through the Tintin intrigues.

It has been a long while since I’ve been reading the comics, but it looks like the film is well under way with two heavy weights at its helm: Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson.

Estrenos deCines has released this conspicuous image of the two, obviously involved in planning an action scene for The Adventures of TinTin: The Secret of The Unicorn while wearing bowler hats.

While you may be running off to dust off your bowler hat, you should know that the film is scheduled to be released in December of 2011. Meanwhile, you should be relieved that Tintin will be played by Jamie Bell, a young, yet veteran actor. Simon Pegg as Inspector Thompson, and Nick Frost is right there with him as Thomson, better known as Dupond, a stereotypical bafoon of a police investigator who has a twin brother.

Andy Serkis, Cary Elwes, the line-up goes on and on. But then again, we are talking Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg in bowler hats…[ Estrenos deCine]
