Steven Spielberg Reveals Peter Jackon is Working on a Secret Project
It's been some time since Peter Jackson's final effort on Middle Earth reached theaters (for better or worse), and the director has had some extensive time off. Apart from an episode of Doctor Who, no word has come forward on what's next for the filmmaker.
Steven Spielberg, speaking with Time Out Magazine, has revealed two interesting things for fans of Jackson. One, The Adventures of Tintin 2 is happening, and two, the filmmaker has a secret project in the works.
“Peter was so busy with The Hobbit that it took him away from Tintin and he’s doing another film for my company now. It’s a secret, nobody knows about it. Then after that he’ll do Tintin.” Both projects are under Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment banner.
Tintin 1, meanwhile, was directed by Spielberg, and produced by Jackson, with a deal reached whereby the two would switch roles for the sequel. Tintin wasn't a huge hit, but it'll be interesting to see what Jackson can do with the animated series.
