Comic Star Tintin will be filmed in three-movie series
Thomas Sangster a schoolboy from south London will be playing the role of comic star Tintin. Steven Spielberg has chosen Thomas for his three-movie series of Tintin, adaptation of the boy reporter’s adventures.
The trilogy of Tintin will be likely to give the 17 years old the same name & fame like Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) or Elijah Wood, who got fame with his role as Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings series.
Herge’s- Tintin books are one of the most popular and 200 million copes were sold around the world. Along with Tintin, Captain Haddock is another popular character in the comic version. The production team has chosen to cast Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock.
Spielberg is working with famous director Peter Jackson (Director of the Lord of Rings & King Kong) on how to make tintin the comic hero in to a real life one. Tintin trilogy will be releasing as the first film in 2010 & already both the actors spent a week in Los Angels & discussed the scenes with director.
Sangster said to media that he never read the book of Tintin because he never likes reading any books. But he said that “he watched the cartoon episodes and loved it very much”.
The director of the film did not reveal which among the 23 Tintin stories will be filmed. Spielberg will direct the first movie & Jackson will direct the second movie. The third movie director is unknown. The latest 3D technology will be used in the filming by the directors.
