Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson Talk Tintin with Top Hats
So there is no real news in this video, but as Quint from Ain't It Cool News says, this "gives me a little geekasm" seeing two filmmaking giants like this sitting together. The official website for Tintin has posted a video of Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson talking about starting production on The Adventures of Tintin. It was recorded for the Angouleme International Comics Festival in France, which is the European equivalent to Comic-Con, that took place in January. We see these kinds of videos a lot at various cons in the US, but because Tintin is big in Europe and not in America, their focus is over there at the moment.

A couple of weeks ago we posted some updates on The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn, which has already finished shooting, as it only took 32 days to do all of the motion capture. This is the first real footage we've seen of Spielberg and Jackson talking about Tintin and it's great to see them working together, although I'm just not sure what to expect. I guess we'll just let them keep working for the next 18 months until we get to see a trailer. Paramount and Sony funded the project, which is currently scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2011.
