Peter Jackson to direct Tintin sequel

Los Angeles - Peter Jackson will direct the Tintin sequel.

Steven Spielberg revealed the Lord of the Rings director will be in charge of the second Tintin movie after the pair struck a deal before the first instalment of the animated project.

He said: "Peter [Jackson]'s doing it. I wanted to do it, but Peter has to because we made a deal. I said, 'I'll direct the first one, you direct the second one.'

The Calculus Affair

"And Peter, of course, is going to do it right after he finishes photography on The Hobbit. He'll go right into the 31, 21 days of performance capture.

"We're not telling the world what books we're basing the second movie on yet."

Despite Steven refusing to reveal which tomes will be used on the second Tintin movie, producer Kathleen Kennedy recently hinted The Calculus Affair is a strong possibility.

But Steven added to Total Film magazine: "We haven't decided that yet. She's throwing a monkey wrench into your story! It could be that. I like The Calculus Affair. So it could be.

"We have completed a story outline now. We have a writer on it. I'm just not declaring what it is. It will be more than one book, but no more than two."
