First Images from Steven Spielberg’s ‘Tintin’ Movie
“With live action you’re going to have actors pretending to be Captain Haddock and Tintin,” says Peter Jackson. “You’d be casting people to look like them. It’s not really going to feel like the Tintin Hergé drew. It’s going to be somewhat different. With CGI we can bring Hergé’s world to life, keep the stylised caricatured faces, keep everything looking like Hergé’s artwork, but make it photo-real.”
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn also stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as the Thompson twins, Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock and Daniel Craig as Red Rackham, and is scheduled for a 2011 release. Empire promises looks at all the main characters in its new issue, which goes on sale November 4. More images after the jump.
