The book of the Spielberg film

#1 · Posted: 12 Jan 2006 21:42
With a possible Tintin film by Steven Spielberg coming up, I was wondering if they would release a Film book like golden fleece and blue oranges or whether they'll just be a small book in writing, like a novel as I don't think that the live action Asterix films were created into comic style books? Someone will probably also make an actual comic strip out of it (unofficial of course)?

If there's a market, probably both I'd imagine. The film book is still a constant, there were similar ones for most recent family film adaptations, eg. Harry Potter, LotR, Wallace & Gromit etc. Although of course digital effects have replaced the Indian ink additions in the Tintin film books ;)

The Asterix live action films weren't made as film books (I don't think; maybe in France?), but the previous cartoon films were as prose with either new drawings (Twelve Tasks, Versus Caesar) or stills from the films (Big Fight, Conquers America).
