Adventures of Tintin

Ha! If we had a category for Awesome, that's where I'd file this. Last week we were one of the first to post about a fan-made opening credits sequence for The Adventures of Tintin that designer James Curran (known as @slimjimstudios) made and posted on Vimeo. I thought it was quite fun and worth featuring, but oh boy has it paid off. Edgar Wright, who co-wrote the Tintin script, recently tweeted (via CinemaBlend) that Steven Spielberg himself saw the video online, loved it, and invited Curran to the UK Tintin premiere and has even hired him to work on the "next movie" he's making. Whoa - congrats James! More info below.

In related news about the next Tintin movie after this year's The Secret of the Unicorn, The Playlist/THR confirmed that Peter Jackson will definitely be directing that next following completing his work on The Hobbit. Spielberg directed the first movie and involved Weta on creating the CG characters, then it'll be up to Jackson to provide us with his follow-up sequel next. Sounds great to me! As the actual life-long Tintin fan between these two directors, I'm excited to see what Jackson will dish up once he gets to run the show.

As for James Curran, here's the full tweet (via SlashFilm) from Edgar Wright about what happened: "So @slimjimstudios does unofficial #Tintin titles http://vimeo.com/30402976, Spielberg sees ’em, give him invite to prem & job on next movie…" There aren't many more specifics beyond that, but some are saying this might mean he's working on Spielberg's Robopocalypse, as that's coming up after he finishes Lincoln and would be a better fit for someone like Curran. But who knows, he could already be working on the next Tintin movie just as well. Either way, as Wright himself said, "that's a pretty cool story right there."
