Another Fun Photo of Spielberg and Jackson Working on Tintin
Oh joy! The Spanish movie website Estrenos deCine has posted yet another fun photo of Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg together on the "set" of The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. This time, though, they're wearing bowler hats while they work! As far as I know, Paramount has not yet fired up the marketing machine for Tintin in the US. There is a lot of media floating around internationally, because Tintin is a much more well known character elsewhere, but here in America it's all still quiet. I think they're waiting for the right moment to introduce us to him, but for now, these are the kind of photos we get to see!
We last wrote about The Adventures of Tintin way back in April and featured the first behind-the-scenes photo then as well. This motion-capture CGI movie stars Jamie Bell as Tintin, Daniel Craig as Red Rackham, Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as Thompson and Thomson, Gad Elmaleh as Ben Salaad, and Toby Jones as Silk. The first film in the planned trilogy finished shooting for 32 days back in March. We hope to see more from this, including an actual photo from the movie, sometime soon. Tintin is currently scheduled for release in America on December 23rd, 2011 (a very long time from now).
