I'm not sure what is going on with Tintin or the Dambusters... [In reply to] Can't Post

I know that Antony Horowitz (the author) was writing the draft script for Tintin 2 as of late 2012, and in a recent interview with Simon Pegg he stated they were planning on shooting it in Jan-March 2014, but other than that I have heard no firm conformation on what the film will contain or when it's shooting-way back in late 2010 I remember reading PJ had set aside a chunk of time in the middle of Hobbit filming to do the sequel-that obviously didn't happen, as the film keeps being delayed,and with PJ very busy for the next 2 years I have a feeling Spielberg will step back in-he was developing the film since the early 1980's, and Jackson only got involved by chance esentially (now that Robopocalypse has been cancelled I assume Spielberg has a free schedule).

As for the Dambusters, all I know is Stephen Fry is still writing the drafts for the script-and again I wouldn't be surprised to see PJ take over as director-after all it was him who bought the rights and is co financing the film so perhaps the studio wouldn't trust a first time director like Rivers...who incidently I was very surprised to see in the recent Hobbit blog, hadn't seen him in years-perhaps his second unit duties at the BOFA are a prep for the Dambusters?.

In anycase I know it sounds like a cliche at this point, but I hope on both Gallipoli and Dambusters he tones down the running time and cgi, and has a bit more sensitivity to the source material this time round-I personally really liked Tintin, but most (if not all) of the comments I've seen from fans of the original's seemed rather negative-prettysurprising if PJ is the massive fan he is.
