Tintin movie in the works

Tintin

Just read that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are working on a trilogy of Tintin movies. According to Variety, each is going to direct at least one, and they’re using some kind of 3D motion-capture animation. Not sure how I feel about that… to be honest I kind of miss the warmth and richness of the old fashioned 2D cel animation. (And to confess, I’ve always thought most anime style animation had a cold, mass produced and plastic-y look.) Anyway, I love the old Tintin stories. I’ll keep an open mind that Spielberg & Jackson wouldn’t set out to create anything less than a brilliant tribute to Herge.
