Steven Spielberg’s and Peter Jackson’s Adventures Of Tintin Ahoy

19 November 2010

Empire magazine has the first look at Steven Spielberg's and Peter Jackson's Adventures Of Tintin. The world's two biggest directors join forces. Yes, it's the very first finished and rendered images anywhere of Tintin, their film adaptation of the enormously popular books by Herge.

And as if the pic isn't reason enough to get excited, they have exclusive on-set access and interviews with Spielberg and Jackson as well.

So what's it all about, "The first part of the film, which is the most mysterious part, certainly owes much to not only film noir but the whole German Brechtian theatre - some of our night scenes and our action scenes are very contrasty. But at the same time the movie is a hell of an adventure."

The film also stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as Thompson and Thomson respectively ("When people first heard that bit of casting they thought that we'd gone barking mad," says Jackson. Adds Spielberg, "The Thompson Twins can't be clones of each other. Nick and Simon provided all the differences we needed to foil for each other. They have a wonderful moment in the movie where they start to have an argument about whose sidekick is whose.") and Daniel Craig as Red Rackham. It also features Cary Elwes, Toby Jones, Mackenzie Crook and Daniel Mays.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is due in cinemas at the end of next year.
