Looking to start production this year...
During an interview with Times of India, Steven Spielberg said he hopes that the next Tintin movie will be out in 2015 with production starting this year.
He said: "Peter Jackson is directing the next one, I'm producing. We have a script and we're going to start performance capture probably at the end of this year. Don't hold me to it, but we're hoping the film will come out around Christmas-time in 2015. We know which books we're making, we can't share that now but we're combining two books which were always intended to be combined by Herge."
It's rumored that the books to be adapted will include the two-part "Seven Crystal Balls" and "Prisoners of the Sun". Peter Jackson has said he wanted to do "Destination Moon" and "Explorers on the Moon" as the third or fourth film. The first film 2011's The Adventures of Tintin, earned $370 million worldwide.
