I checked the date. Nope, not Christmas. Not my birthday. Not even April Fool’s Day. Then how to explain this story in Variety that Steven Spielberg AND Peter Jackson are set to start work on a Tintin trilogy? It will be a motion capture film with the aim of creating a realistic film with Herge people and places. I am out of breath thinking about it. They’ve apparently picked the stories and look ready to go after they’ve finished their current movies. Wow.
