Tintin movie coming soon!

Fans of Tintin will be delighted to know that both Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson will be making not 1 but 3 Tintin movies in 3D! The first of the trilogy will be out in cinemas sometime in 2009. I can't wait. From E!News:
According to DreamWorks, Jackson and Spielberg will each helm at least one installment in the franchise. They will decide at a later date who will handle the third.

The directors will animate the films using the same state-of-the-art 3-D performance-capture technology Jackson's New Zealand-based effects house, Weta Digital, developed to create Gollum in his Lord of the Rings trilogy and the lead ape in King Kong.

The Tintin movies will closely follow the plots of the books, with the iconic hero and his fox terrier Snowy traveling to far-flung lands to fight crime with their posse of oddball friends, including quick-tempered mentor Captain Haddock, absent-minded Professor Cuthbert Calculus, opera diva Bianca Castafiore and bowler-sporting, blundering twin police officers, Thomson and Thompson.
