Peter Jackson has disclosed that he plans to direct the sequel to last year’s Tintin, the motion-capture film that he produced but which was directed by Steven Spielberg. For the sequel, he implied, he and Spielberg will reverse roles. The film opened with just $9.7 million and went on to earn a total of $77.6 million domestically — figures that would ordinarily not justify a sequel, especially not one calling for expensive digital effects. But the film earned a whopping $296.4 million overseas, where the title character is well known and loved, and wound up with a smashing worldwide figures of $373,993,951. Jackson told Belgium’s RTBF website that he plans to take time off from completing his The Hobbit trilogy to begin shooting the basic images for the new Tintin movie, with the aim of a 2015 release.
