From the beginning, the plan was to have Peter Jackson direct the sequel to THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: SECRET OF THE UNICORN. Spielberg helmed the first and the third installment of the trilogy would go to someone unannounced.

Today Jackson confirmed that he would be directing the sequel, THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: PRISONERS OF THE SUN as soon as THE HOBBIT was complete. Jackson served as producer on the first film. After the confirmation, Spielberg explained that they don't have the greenlight just yet, “[Sony and Paramount] were willing to do one movie with us and then give us the financial werewithal to develop a script, do all the visual storyboards and get it really in launch position. So we can launch pretty quickly on a second movie. The script is already written."

"Alex Rider" series author, Anthony Horowitz wrote the script combining Tintin stories: THE SEVEN CRYSTAL BALLS and PRISONERS OF THE SUN. The story centers on, "Tintin and his BFF Captain Haddock investigating a strange illness that has befallen seven explorers who have discovered an Incan tomb, before traveling to Peru to get to the bottom of the mystery. Once again, a story ripe for Spielberg and Jackson to have some pure fun up on the big screen."

Spielberg admitted that there had not been a ton of talk on the third installment. Early word is that THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: SECRET OF THE UNICORN is a great family film. With all the powers of this movie combined, I don't doubt it.

Some spoiler ahead...

SotU is a GREAT film... PERIOD !
But it's strange they want to do the albums THE SEVEN CRYSTAL BALLS and PRISONERS OF THE SUN after it, because, although it's not a cliffhanger per say, the end of SotU leads directly to THE TREASURE OF RACKHAM THE RED (basically the second part of this story, in the albums' order).
The best part of this news is that we'll see the professor Tournesol in this next Tintin's big screen adventures...

I would rather see THE SEVEN CRYSTAL BALLS and PRISONERS OF THE SUN than THE TREASURE OF RACKHAM THE RED, which is not very interesting by its own, but for professor Tournesol introduction, which is great. I think they will figure out a way to introduce professor Tournesol in THE SEVEN CRYSTAL BALLS...

These particular books are thrilling themselves, so I'm sure the film will be just as exciting...

Secret of the unicorn is very good indeed, very well written, very faithful to the original comic book and Spielberg does not forget to do what he does best : incredible action sequences. And yes, the 3D is excellent !
