Live-Action ‘Tintin’ Movie Being Developed by Director Patrice Leconte, Who Doesn’t Actually Have the Rights to the Character Yet
Posted on Monday, October 12th, 2020 by Chris Evangelista
Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin is a rollicking animated adventure that’s cut from the same cloth as the Indiana Jones series. Spielberg’s Tintin made good money, and for years now, the plan has been for Peter Jackson to direct a sequel. Spielberg and Jackson have sworn up and down that the sequel was coming, no, really, it is – but there has been almost no real movement on the project. And now, Spielberg and Jackson might want to start getting their act together, because it looks like someone wants to swoop in and make their own Tintin film. French director Patrice Leconte says he’s developing a live-action Tintin movie, and is said to be far along in the development process. However, there’s a catch: he doesn’t seem to have the film rights to the character just yet.
