Tintin - Movie in the making

Can you imagine that 23 of Tintin's adventures were written between 1929 to 1976!!. The author Hergé died midway thro the 24th book. And he had left a will that virtually banned any new illustrated adventures after his death.

But the good news is that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson would be making three existing Tintin stories as movies. Times Online gives an inside view of whatz cooking up. Wonder which three??

Small Trivia: Tintin creator's original name is Georges Remi. Hergé is the French pronunciation of "R.G.", the reverse of his initials.
