So Anthony Horowitz did an AMA on the Guardian last month and he doesn't seem to say he's been fired. If anything, I would guess that Peter Jackson is taking a long-overdue break after exhausting himself on the Hobbit movies (check out the featurette where he basically reveals how under prepared they were for the Battle of the Five Armies).

I remain optimistic that they will use his script for the next film which should be filmed by 2017 and be released around 2018-19. Would be about as long a gap as the one between X-Men Origins and Deadpool, which may not be such a bad thing.

I consider Horowitz a more consistent screenwriter than Moffat, and more suited for a PG Tintin film than Wright or Cornish who do more R-rated stuff anyway.

I'm happy to be proved wrong, but I don't think it sounds much different to what he said on Twitter, as mentioned earlier in the thread; I'd be interested in how you are interpreting his comments, because I'm not getting a "still-working-on-it" vibe from what he says.

I'd love it to be true, because as you rightly say he's a man with the sensibility to make a Tintin script work (and, to be honest, I'd love to see a Steel Claw TV show!), but I'm just not sure at the moment!

In that same Guardian report, Horowitz states "it was Tintin who inspired me to be a writer. I dreamed of having adventures like his, and making bizarre friends all around the world."

The New Zealand Herald reports that Sir Peter Jackson is to work on a film for Steven Spielberg's Amblin' company - and it isn't the Tintin sequel.

In something which seems to have surprised the industry, Mr. Spielberg says that Sir Peter is working on an undisclosed project, which will only be revealed at a later date; this takes precedence over the sequel, but it is suggested that that will be next.

So progress, of sorts!

It's close to 5 years since the last film which was highly anticipated came out.
At this stage it could be another 5 years for the next one. I'm in favour of it if it will bring new fans instead of boresome franchise films which dry up in 3 years because they've been shoved down our throats. What a shame that we may have to wait just as long for a new Tintin console game.

After reading The New Zealand Herald that jock123 posted about, I was encouraged by this statement in the article:

"Peter was so busy with The Hobbit that it took him away from Tintin and he's doing another film for my company now. It's a secret, nobody knows about it. Then after that he'll do Tintin."

Do you guys think this is to be taken seriously, as if the Tintin sequel is truly Peter's next film after that, or is this just another maybe-possibly-Peter-will-eventually-get-to-Tintin-someday situation? :-(

Jamie Bell is too old now. Maybe recast him with a Belgian/French actor? Or maybe someone who can do the accent?

Well, it's a minor consideration when you don't actually see the actor giving the performance; Adam West has just played Batman again in animated form, and he's 88!
Maybe recast him with a Belgian/French actor?

Can't see why that makes a difference to motion-capture work; it's also moot if the rest of the cast around him *aren't* Belgian (I mean, if being "not Belgian" is the problem, then "being French" isn't really an answer is it?).
The accent issue has been discussed earlier, and the truth is that having characters speak in English with a "foreign" accent when they are all supposed to be speaking in another language just sounds dated and laboured. Much better to have the cast speak in the language and accents that they are comfortable in, and which gives the best performance experience to the audience.

This may be unrelated news, but Peter Jackson seems to continue to delay production work on the Tintin sequel as he appears to be somewhat busy with his current project Mortal Engines. I think it looks amazing though, and thankfully Jackson is the producer, not the director. One of his longtime colleagues Christian Rivers is though, and they just started filming earlier this month

It's gonna come out in December 2018 so we're still a while away from any focus on the Tintin sequel. Hopefully, there'd be more news to follow in the coming months as Mortal Engines wiil probably finish filming before the end of this year.

Spielberg, on the other hand, is busy with 2 projects: he's also doing a sci fi film named Ready Player One which finished filming a while back and will come out on March 30, 2018. His other project is about the Pentagon Papers and like Mortal Engines, started filming earlier this month. I'm expecting it to come out by December of this year as an Oscar contender, like Bridge of Spies was in 2015

On another note, I think it's been eighteen months since I last posted something here, though feels a lot longer. Damn

Well it looks like we'll be waiting 'til 2019 or 2020...

Or never. :(
