TINTIN

Lots of people are excited about THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN. It's an adaptation of the wildly popular comic-strip, it's starring the brilliant and funny duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and, if you needed any more reason to be excited about all of this, two of Hollywood's heaviest hitters, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, are attached.

Peter Jackson has been busy promoting his latest film, THE LOVELY BONES. Amidst other things, Jackson spilled some information on the progress of his work-in-progress, TINTIN. According to Jackson, filming for TINTIN has absolutely and completely wrapped. Post-production is now under way.

Here's some bad news. Filming for the TINTIN movie has been completed, but in case you forgot, TINTIN is a CG film that will use the motion-capture technology, so it's going to take a while in post. Somewhere around two years to be exact. Looks like the purposed release date is going to stay the same for now, and we won't be seeing any TINTIN until December 23, 2011. But, I don't won't to be a total pessimist (after all, it's the holidays), so let's end things on a high note, spoken from none other than Peter Jackson, himself.

"TINTIN is great. It’s made. The movie is cut together and now (we) are turning it into a fully-rendered film…So the movie, to some degree, exists in a very rough state."
