  • 'Tintin' from Steven Spielberg & Peter Jackson

    Spielberg, Jackson dig into 'Tintin'

    Duo's motion-capture film quietly in motion

    Steven Spielberg is collaborating with Peter Jackson on 'Tintin.'

    By Tatiana Siegel

    Steven Spielberg this week will quietly wrap 32 days of performance-capture lensing on "Tintin," then hand the project to producer Peter Jackson, who will focus on the film's special effects for the next 18 months.

    Although the baton-pass is stealthy, "Tintin" is anything but a low-profile project. And that's just the first of many contradictions inherent with the film, which brings together two of cinema's visionaries.

    The Tintin comicbook series about a globetrotting teenaged boy reporter, which originated 80 years ago in Belgium, is wildly popular in many countries around the world. In the U.S., however, the character is little-known, especially among children.

    Spielberg and Jackson's respective camps have tried to keep a lid on the details of what is expected to become a three-film franchise while hyping the one-of-a-kind aspects of "Tintin's" motion-capture technology, which is being created by Jackson's New Zealand-based effects house Weta.

    Just don't ask too many questions.

    The Tintin and the Asterix books were a real part of my childhood and I look forward to these movies.

    I read that Billy Elliot's Jamie Bell will 'play' the title character while Jackson-favourite Andy Serkis will portray Tintin's friend Captain Haddock.
