Peter Jackson to Start Work on Tintin Sequel in 2013
Despite having an extremely loaded schedule with 3 The Hobbit projects on his slate, Peter Jackson shows that he’s prolific enough to squeeze in other projects, with the most recently announced being the sequel to The Adventures of Tintin.
According to Jackson, work on the project is scheduled to start as soon as next year, particularly with regard to the motion-capture filming parts. He states that he’ll be able to start working as soon as his The Hobbit schedule eases up a bit. As soon as the basic motion capture footage has been filmed, WETA Digital will be able to work on the basic nuts and bolts needed to construct the bones of the film in post prod. It is said that the latter stage is the most time-consuming part, while the filming itself can be done in a matter of weeks.
The details regarding the Tintin sequel’s plot is still scarce, but it’s already been revealed that children’s book author Anthony Horowitz was hired to pen the script.
