(c. federic bennett)
the adventure of tintin: the secret of the unicorn is a motion capture 3d film based on the adventure of tintin, a series of beloved comic books created by begian artist, “hergé” (georges remi). the film is directed by steven spielberg. the actual script is based on two stories; le crabe aux pinces d’or (the crab with the golden claws) and le secret de la licorne (the secret of the unicorn) which are the ninth and the eleventh in the series.
the cast includes jamie bell as tintin (its pronunciation is ‘tang-tang’, yes it’s french.) , andy serkis as captain haddock, simon pegg & nick frost as thomson and thompson.
filming began in january 2009, and speilberg already handed the film to peter jackson who will be responsible for the special effects for the next 18 months. the film is scheduled to release in 2011. although this series has been adapted to films, animations, musical for several times… i do feel this one is going to be the biggest.
