For those of you who are uninitiated, stop everything that you are doing and go out and buy the Tintin comics. That’s right…just drop out of law school, med school, any of those useless endeavors and make yourself worthwhile by reading these awesome comics, because pretty soon they’re going to be movies directed by none other than Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, as reported by NY Times:
After months of deal-making turmoil, the elaborate, two-film “Tintin” series planned by the directors Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson may find its financiers in a partnership being forged by Sony Pictures Entertainment and Paramount Pictures.
Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Andy Serkis have already hopped on for the projects which will use motion capture 3D.
Look, I know what you guys are thinking, that this news could only get better by making the films into a trilogy with another legendary film-maker. Worry no more, I sent Spielberg a copy of “Dark Knight” with “Directed by Rahul Victor” written on top of it and he was very impressed and signed me up. Sharpies are amazing.
