Out promoting his latest film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, director Steven Spielberg revealed that he and Peter Jackson may jointly direct the third installment in the planned Tintin movies:
“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.”
Production on the first film is expected to begin in September. A theatrical release could come as early as 2009.
