Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Who's writing TINTIN? Steven Moffat, that's who. He's a British writer most known for his work on DR. WHO and JEKYLL. I actually just got the first season of JEKYLL... can't wait to check it out.
If you haven't been keeping up on the project, it's pretty fascinating. Both Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg are big TINTIN fans and they'll both be directing one film each of a trilogy of TINTIN flicks, all done using performance capture technology for a digital 3-D release. The third director has yet to be chosen... but who is going to feel at home there? They can't just go pick anybody... "Steven Spielberg! Peter Jackson! And... McG!" See, it doesn't work.
Might be Zemeckis. We know he loves the technology and this sounds up his alley.
The trade story isn't too clear, but it appears Moffat is writing all three movies. Thoughts?
