The long-lingering Tintin sequel is still alive, but a long ways out
Nickelodeon / Amblin
Peter Jackson is still hoping to follow up 2011’s The Adventures of Tintin with a sequel, with him directing and Steven Spielberg producing. The project has been in development since 2008, when Sony agreed to finance two Tintin films.
Speaking with Polygon at a press event promoting Mortal Engines (another long-in-development project he is producing), Peter Jackson offered an update to the status of the second Tintin film, and whether it’s still in the works.
“I’m intending to” make it, said Jackson. “I’ve got gotta get the script written, but I’m certainly hoping to get another Tintin film, one which I’ve directed. This one, Steven [Spielberg] would produce. It’s within the next year or two, I would hope. I mean, there’s nothing happening this very second, but it does literally need me to sit down and develop a script for it. So probably in the new year, I’ll try to do that.”
