As most of you probably know, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson‘s The Adventures of Tintin, which will be released next week, was originally called The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. Though the subtitle was dropped and the film pulls from several stories, that’s the primary Herge book this first film is based on. The legendary author published about two dozen Tintin books in total but, instead of starting with the first one, Spielberg and Jackson opted to jump into the middle (Unicorn was the 11th book) because it introduced a very popular sidekick character in Captain Haddock.

The main rumor was Prisoners of the Sun, but that was reportedly pushed to a possible third movie. Not the case says producer Kathleen Kennedy.

In a new interview, she says while a screenplay for a sequel is currently being written by Anthony Horowitz, Prisoners of the Sun won’t be the basis of the second or third film. The sequel may, however, center on The Calculus Affair. Read more below. Read More »
