I feel that if Jamie Bell gets "too old" (which is highly unlikely), British actor Tom Holland who played Spiderman in "Spiderman: Homecoming" would successfully fit the bill. He is about Jamie's height and his voice sounds a bit like Bell. Just me, though.

Well, this is an interesting notion...!
Screen Tintin Jamie Bell himself has suggested that he's open to the idea of co-star (in the role of Captain Haddock) Andy Serkis stepping in to direct the first sequel to Steven Spielberg's The Secret of 'The Unicorn', if Sir Peter Jackson too busy with other projects to take it on...
The busy schedules of both Sir Peter and Steven Spielberg have kept the project on the back-burner, so perhaps this could be the way ahead?
Few if any other actors have the motion-capture credentials of Mr Serkis, having been the "go to" guy since his landmark work on The Lord of the Rings, followed by performances in the title role of Sir Peter's version of King Kong, and the lead in the recent Planet of the Apes cycle... He's also developed his own motion-capture facility for use by the movie industry, so he appears to be an ideal candidate!
This could work!
What do you think?

Andy Serkis would be a great choice! And maybe they could ask George Lucas to write the script, he has a lot of time on his hands nowadays.

Another year, another mention of the sequel!

The website for the French version of Premiere magazine are (again) touting the start of work on the next Tintin film, this time thanks to a question posed to Steven Spielberg, currently on the press circuit to promote his new picture, Ready, Player One.

When asked about the status of the sequel, he apparently reassured the person who asked by confirming that Sir Peter Jackson was to direct it, and that, "if all goes well, he'll start working on the script soon."
He followed it by saying that, with two years of animation in addition to whatever work is needed to create the motion capture for the story, etc., that it could be three years before it was released.
However, he was confident that it was still going ahead, and ended by saying that "...Peter will keep at it – Tintin is not dead!"

This is positive as far as it goes, and it has been re-Tweeted by the official Tintin Twitter feed, which at least gives it some credence; however it is suitably vague to be seen as a pretty noncommittal, and not much different to any previous status update.
Sir Peter Jackson is also involved with a major series on the Great War for the BBC, which was previously announced, so may be able to fit in the work on Tintin before that starts, or during other gaps in his schedule, or it may yet again prove to be another false dawn, blown up by the press - we will have to wait and see!
