Talking with Italian movie site BadTaste at the premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, Jackson reaffirmed his commitment. "As soon as I'm free of The Hobbit, I'll be going back into doing Tintin. It was held up by The Hobbit, but we have every intention of doing another Tintin movie and it's just waiting on me to be done with these Hobbit movies."
The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn (2011) was directed by Jackson's collaborator, Steven Spielberg, and while the pair have both talked about progress on the next film, nothing has seen the light of day thanks to Jackson's Hobbit commitments. So if you were eagerly awaiting the next Tintin outing, you may have a wait a bit longer. Still, Jackson has also said he wants to take a break from big movies once the Hobbit films are safely complete, so we do wonder whether the delay will keep getting bigger.
