Back in March, Steven Spielberg
revealed that production on The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun will begin at the end of this year, with Peter Jackson
at the helm. While many doubted that scenario would happen, given the director's production schedule with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
and The Hobbit: There and Back Again
, Peter Jackson
confirmed that he still plans on directing The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun, after his Middle Earth trilogy has been completed.
"Yes, as soon as I am free of The Hobbit, I'll go back into doing Tintin. It was held up by The Hobbit, but we have every intention of doing another Tintin movie, and it's just waiting on me now, waiting for me to be done with these Hobbit movies. Once we get these Hobbit movies out of the way, then we can make another Tintin."
