‘Adventures of Tintin 2’ Release Pushed Back Due to Jackson’s Work on Hobbit 3
Stephen Spielberg’s sequel of “The Adventures Of Tintin” was set to release on Christmas 2015, but it was eventually pushed back. The movie will be directed by Peter Jackson, and his work on the forthcoming “Hobbit” movie is the main reason why “The Adventures Of Tintin 2” has been pushed back.
In the interview with IGN, Tintin actor, Jamie Bell revealed us that the script for the movie has been written. He was also speaking about Spilberg’s work on “Hobbit 3“, and that the main reason why the movie has been pushed back:
“It’s weird,” the actor contained. “I saw Steven [Spielberg] recently, randomly. I bumped into him. I hadn’t seen him for awhile, and we were talking. I asked him to sign a Tintin book for me to my unborn son and stuff, and we were talking about it. He was like, ‘Yeah, it’s happening. It’s being written. As soon as Peter’s back from Middle-earth, we’re going to do it.'” So now I’m just waiting.”
The second installment of “The Adventures of Tintin”, which was titled as “The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun”, by IMDb, was originally scheduled for Christmas 2015 release. But with Jackson’s dedication to the third “The Hobbit” movie, it was pushed back to the unknown date.
Plot details of “The Adventures Of Tintin 2” are still unknown. But there are some speculations over the internet that the two Tintin stories “Seven Crystal Balls” and “Prisoner of the Sun” may be the foundation for the second Tintin’s adventure.
Producer Kathleen Kennedy has previously spoke about the possibility that the film may get its story from “The Calculus Affair”. While Jackson himself mentioned “Destination Moon” and “Explorers on the Moon” as a potential cores for the third and fourth installments of “The Adventures Of Tintin” franchise.
