Tintin Coming as Feature Film

Steven Spielberg is set to produce and Peter Jackson to direct the 2009 live-action motion picture film version of Hergé’s beloved Tintin books for Dreamworks . Actually Spielberg and Jackson will each direct one with a third director to make the final film. So, it’s a trilogy to be taken from the numerous comics Hergé wrote.

It’s being called a “photo-realistic animated film” so, honestly, I’m not 100% sure what that is, but the Wikipedia article sheds a little light. Anyone remember Dick Tracy? Maybe something like that but in reverse?

I’ve been a fan of Tintin since I was a kid and just thrilled to death about this! I am not alone, either. A search of the net using Google shows a large number of sites talking about this.
