Today is the 100th anniversary of Herge's birth. Tintin's daddy.

Looking at the news tributes to Herge and his immortal creation, I am delighted to learn that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are going to direct two of three proposed Tintin movies. Great news.

I wonder who would be the third director to make the remaining movie? Icon-maker George Lucas would be a grrreat choice, though I'd wouldn't mind Mike Newell (not the soccer player:roll:) or Peter Greenaway. The latter could provide an interesting perspective on Herge's immortal characters by sexing up the story (as always) and heightening the homoerotic tension between Hadoque and Tintin.

Whatever. It's all good.

I'd go for Tarantino, or maybe Lasse Hellstrom for a more angst-ridden interpretation. Max von Sydow would make a great Captain Haddock.

The goss says the films will be state-of-the-art CGI with shadow actors cast as the main characters to provide a human touch. It seems Peter Jackson and S.S. (not me:D) want to re-create the artistic quality of Herge's original color schemes.

Still, I wouldn't mind another rival studio doing a human Tintin movie. For me, its Jude Law as the sleuth and Kenneth Branagh as Captain Haddock (with Max von Sydow as Professor Calculus:p).

Little known fact: Tintin was based on 80’s pop nancy boy Jimmy Somerville.

Little known fact number 2: The three new films will be piss poor no matter who directs them.

In the Tarantino version, both of the Thompson Twins will be played be Jean-Claude van Damme!

Double Team. Didn't watch it because its reputation already extended beyond the cinehalls.

Couldn't van Damme's hard arse save it? He usually bares it in most of his movies.

Think I'll pass, even if it is budget price - some of the Amazon reviews of it are hilarious enough.

van Damme's a bad actor for sure, but his arse is/was a work of art.

Too bad he never saw fit to bare his cable too.
