Mr. Remi - I am Steven ...

Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson will be directing'Tintin' movies!! It seemed they signed a deal to make 3 Tintin animated movies - with Spielberg and Jackson each directing one, and the details of the third one yet to be decided. In case you are wondering who Mr. Remi is - he is Georges Remi (more commonly known as Hergé )

I have been a Tintin fan since my childhood, and am definitely looking forward to seeing the finished product. Jackson's special effects company Weta Digital will be providing the animation for the movies.

If the Lord of the Rings Trilogy is any indication, this should be a classic - same goes without saying when you look at Spielberg's resume. I can't wait to see Captain Haddock scream "Billions of blue bilious blistering barnacles in a thundering typhoon".
