Steven Spielberg And Peter Jackson To Co-Direct Third TinTin Movie?

Steven Spielberg has confirmed that the current plan is to co-direct the third TinTin movie with Peter Jackson.

"We are going to make three Tintin movies back-to-back. I'll direct the first one, Peter will direct the second one. We'll probably co-direct the third one."

The first movie in the performance capture series is scheduled to begin production in September with Speilberg in the directors chair. Jackson will helm the second film in the series. Based on the classic comic-strip, Tintin follows the adventures of a junior reporter and his faithful dog Snowy. Jackson regular Andy Serkis (you know, the guy behind the characters of Golumn and King Kong) is signed on to play Captain Haddock. The first film is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters in 2009.
