Peter Jackson said in an interview that the sequel would be unlike the first one. It would be more of an espionage film, so I guess The Calculus Affair is most likely.
Don’t forget that the exec. producer Kathleen Kennedy also said earlier this year that they would most likely adapt Red Rackham's Treasure and The Calculus Affair, while Spielberg, in Feb 2012, confirmed that the sequel will be based on 2 books.

I’d take that with a pinch of salt, because I really don’t think that the decision had been finalized back then (as Spielberg says in that interview you give the link to); if you read back in this thread, you’ll see that it was discussed back then.

They’ve pretty much said that since the very start, the problem for them being that the individual books are too short to adapt easily to a full-length movie.

If the Tintin sequel is based on The Calculus Affair, I hope Anthony Horowitz includes this scene in his screenplay. It was one of the best scenes in the book.

I hope it's not the moon books, but a rumor has surfaced that the Blue Lotus will or may be part of the third movie. I certainly hope that is true as Chang is one of my favorite characters.

Just a quick reminder/ request, as things have been a little confused in this area, and some posts have had to be moved: please use this thread to speculate upon the stories, plot, characters or cast, etc., of the next movie.
If you wish to inform the community of news about the progress, production and casting, etc., of the next film, then please use the other thread found here.
That way it keeps the “fact” away from the “fiction”, as it were, and makes it easier for members to decide just how much or little they know about the production in advance.
It won’t ever be perfect, especially as some news reports are themselves largely speculation, but it will help!

Thanks!

The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun could make a great film, I think. However, if they want to continue the story from the first film (as was hinted in its ending), they also need to work in the treasure hunt from Red Rackham's Treasure somehow. That would also be a logical way to introduce Professor Calculus.

In The Seven Crystal Balls, Calculus was kidnapped because he had worn a golden bracelet that originally belonged to an Incan mummy. I have a theory that the bracelet in the film version will be part of the treasure at The Unicorn. After all, Captain Haddock's ancestor lived after the discovery of America, so there might be Indian stuff aboard European ships. This would be a possible way to connect the stories.

Yup, that’s a notion that several of us have shared over time (credit where credit is due, it actually appears on p.1 of this thread, proposed by tintinagalog); it seems like a logical way to segue between the adventures.

However, there’s nothing to say that they will make that connection… We’ll just have to wait and see!

According to its imdb entry, it is planned for 2015, but given production delays etc, that might mean 2016.
