[Movies] Peter Jackson Would Like to Shoot Tintin Sequel in 2013

A long wait to return to Tintin...
RTBF spoke with director Peter Jackson who said he'd like to begin shooting his version of Herge's Tintin at some point in 2013.
Jackson also went on to say that post-production on another Tintin movie would take about two years so 2015 would be the earliest we'd see the return of Tintin and Captain Haddock. The Adventures of Tintin, directed by Steven Spielberg, was released in 2011 and made $296 million overseas but only $77 million in the US. The response to the movie in the US was rather tepid, and getting filmmakers like Spielberg and Jackson involved is not cheap. Plus with Jackson deep into production of The Hobbit which will see two more releases, it seems like there is no rush or big commitment to see another Tintin movie.
