Peter Jackson confirms Tintin sequel.

Peter Jackson has confirmed his next project... well the one after his next project, at least.

He will start work on a sequel to the ground-breaking animated movie 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn' after he's wrapped up his final instalment of 'The Hobbit' series, 'The Hobbit: There and Back Again'.

"As soon as I'm free of 'The Hobbit', I'll be going back into doing Tintin," Jackson told the BadTaste website.

"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."

Jackson produced the last film, which starred Jamie Bell in a motion-capture role as the be-quiffed adventuring reporter, while Steven Spielberg directed.

So far there's only rumours as to which Herge story the film will take on.

It's thought that among the possibilities are 'The Seven Crystal Balls' and 'Prisoners of the Sun'.

Also rumoured are 'Destination Moon' and 'Explorers on the Moon'.
