According to the Wikipedia article on the abandoned project Le Thermozéro:

Unwilling to abandon a good idea, Hergé planned to makeLe Thermozérothe plot of the third filmed adventure of Tintin, but once again, this did not take place.

Wikipedia also claims that "Thermozéro" was to be the basis of another "Jo, Zette and Jocko" adventure, but again never got made.

I've often wondered if anyone else thought of using it as a plot. Greg was a very prolific writer and I wouldn't be surprised if he used it as a basis for an adventure with other characters.

Be interesting to know.

Not just Wikipedia - we’ve touched on Le ThermoZéro as a Jo, Zette & Jocko book here at Tintinologist too!

I don’t believe he did - I imagine that once Studios Hergé took it on, he probably got paid for it, and the rights to the scenario passed to Hergé. As the thread I link to shows, the JZ&J version was more or less finished, with all the pages in place (although the exact state of the artwork - whether pencils or inks or whatever is not certain), so Greg probably saw it as a done deal.

As you say, he was quite prolific, so it wasn’t as if Greg was short of ideas, and he probably just came up with some fresh ones.
