Although the first Tin Tin movie has yet to even hit the big screen, it is already being lined up to become a trilogy. Peter Jackson, who already has the smash hit Lord of the Rings trilogy under his belt, will be producing the movies and is hoping that a Tin Tin trilogy will also become a major success.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, is an animated feature length film and is currently in post production. The movie is being directed by Steven Spielberg and it is set to hit the big screen on December 23 of this year. Peter Jackson has already lined up second and third Tin Tin movies, which he hopes to release in two year intervals of each other.
The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun is currently in the early scripting stages and is expected to be completed and released in 2013. A third Tin Tin film, which is yet to be titled, while then proceed the first two by being released in 2015 and completing the trilogy. It seems like quite a gamble to put faith in making a trilogy without even knowing the outcome of the opener but time will tell if the gamble pays off.
