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!

It's really intresting to read the comments about this topic years back. Hopefully the movie does release soon!❤️

Anthony Horowitz's script having been scrapped, it's now in the air that Peter Jackson himself will write the script for the sequel.
But it still hasn't been announced on which books the script will be based.
Its being based on the Prisoners of the Sun has been thrown into doubt, but maybe Sir Jackson may base it on that book only. (Clue: Spot an album where the Thom(p)sons have a pretty large part to play).
Anyway, other favourites of Sir Jackson include The Calculus Affair, The Black Island, The Blue Lotus and the Moon adventures, with the latter two being potential later sequels.
Much of the acting crew are still expected to reprise their roles as-and-when shooting starts.
But as it stands, after 7 years since the first movie released, we still have not got a release date and worse, a date for the start of shooting.
With Steven Spielberg telling us to hold our breathes till at least 2021, I seriously am starting to have doubts...
Be it so, I will be the least surprised if the film is postponed further. And till then, we can only take inspiration from movies like The Incredibles 2(2018) whose prequel came out in 2004 and hope our patience bears fruit.

I've not seen anything about that - has there been some sort of announcement?
being based on the Prisoners of the Sun has been thrown into doubt

Again, does that come from an announcement? Prisoners is surely as much of a candidate as any other - in fact, given that it's a double album, it's got a lot going for it. As no title has ever been announced (the use of the title on IMDb has been shown to be only speculation, probably added by a member of the public).
maybe Sir Jackson may base it on that book only

I don't follow you here - the movie will more than likely need more than one book as the source (the producers said as much during the making of the last movie, and I don't know why it would change this time), and may include more of Red Rackham's Treasure to tie the two together.
other favourites of Sir Jackson include The Calculus Affair, The Black Island, The Blue Lotus and the Moon adventures

Again, any of these are posssible - although I really doubt The Blue Lotus would make the cut without Cigars, and I think that they are covered in the gallery of "past adventures" on the walls of Tintin's study in Unicorn; unless they are presented as a flashback, I think that they will be avoided. Sir Peter has more or less ruled out the Moon adventure for the first sequel, so they are the least likely of the available books.
I seriously am starting to have doubts...

Thirty years from the announcement of Spielberg's plan for a Tintin movie, to the movie coming out - that's the time the first one took, so patience is a virtue...! :-)

It is the third or fourth time that I have been told that patience is a virtue!:-) Actually, I am pretty patient (not being sarcastic). It is just that I feel so excited while being in this site and hence...

On a more serious note, here is the site from where I got the info (look at the last bit). I do not know whether this info has come from a verified source but I cannot blame the author for conjecturing a little especially since news of this sequel is so scarce.

I completely agree with you that the sequel will not be based on a single album and was just a metonymy.

And yes, I know there will be no Moon or Blue Lotus for the sequel. Maybe I was too tired to frame the sentence correctly. I meant something like:
Later sequel and not immediate sequel. I hope you will ask me if you have any further queries.

I can't wait another 30 years

There is some potential good news for the Tintin movie fans:
Polygon reported that while promoting his next production, Mortal Engines, Peter Jackson took out sometime to talk about the Tintin sequel. According to him, he might start work on the script next year if everything goes well. As yet, he is still undecided which book he will bring to life with almost every book having a potential for the sequel.

Whatever the plot, this is great news for the Tintin fans and we can only hope that Sir Jackson keeps his word and starts work on the script soon. However, it will be another 4 to 5 years earliest, before we will be able to see the boy reporter and his white fox-terrier on the silver screen, I guess. :-)
