I think the movies will be in CGI and the actor who played both Gollum in The Lord of The Rings Trilogy and King Kong will play Captain Haddock. With Spielberg and Peter Jackson, I believe the film will be a great one. Let's hope that the Hollywood machinery won't ruin this new Tintin adaptation.

In fact, I just found on the internet an interview to said actor: Andy Serkis. It came from Indielondon. The interviewer asked him about the Tintin movies (yes, they're planning on doing more than one!):

Q. Are you going to be reuniting with Peter Jackson again for Tintin?

Andy Serkis: In fact tomorrow I’m flying out to start on Tintin. Steven Spielberg is directing the first one, and then Peter Jackson is doing the second. The bulk of the shoot starts in September but things got a little bit moved around after the writers’ strike.

...................................................................... .........................

Q. Were you at all worried when Peter first got back in touch that having played Gollum and King Kong, he might ask you to play Snowy the dog?
Andy Serkis: [laughs] Absolutely, in fact people assume that I am, which is even more disturbing [he’s playing Captain Haddock].

In regards to the article Triskeliae quotes, as it been confirmed that Serkis is playing Haddock, or is the author just quoting the fan rumours?

In one BBC interview, Serkis said he was not allow to confirm which role he was playing.

I don't particularly take the fact that it was printed in a newpaper to mean it's accurate, as, just yesterday, my local paper had an article which talked about "Robert Zemekis' The adventure of Tintin movie"

I just quoted from the interview.

I just received that a 17 year-old actor is playing Tintin, I don't remember the name, but he acted in Nanny McPhee

His name is Thomas Sangster, Triskeliae.
Follow the link I posted earlier today for more info and the actor's picture.

I found this on www.imdb.com

"British Star Sangster Lands Tintin Role?

Teenage actor Thomas Sangster is set to take on the role of cult comic hero Tintin in the upcoming movie franchise, according to reports. The 17-year-old Brit, who has starred in hit movies Love Actually and Nanny McPhee, is said to have emerged as the frontrunner to play the intrepid young reporter in a trilogy of films based on the famed comics by Belgian cartoonist Herge, aka Georges Remi. And Sangster sparked further speculation he is to be handed the lead role in the planned film trilogy after flying to Los Angeles to work on test action sequences with renowned moviemaker Steven Spielberg, who is to direct the first installment in the franchise. Although Sangster's agent has refused to comment about his involvement with the project - due to start shooting in the autumn - the representative admits the Brit has traveled to Hollywood for meetings and urges fans to "watch this space." If Sangster does win the leading role, he will join fellow British star Andy Serkis in the film franchise. Serkis has signed on to play Tintin's sidekick Captain Haddock. The trilogy will reportedly be split between Spielberg and Peter Jackson, with the Saving Private Ryan director managing the first film in the franchise, and the Lord Of The Rings moviemaker taking on the second and third.

It was also in the UK Daily Mail a few days ago (read here).

Sangster is a very young looking chap (I think he looks younger than 17). Not quite the Tintin I'd pictured, but he might be the man (or boy!)

He seems alright for the role. Thomas is one lucky guy.
