Steven Spielberg: Director of a Tintin Movie
One of the greatest living film directors, probably the most successful ever, he has been behind more blockbusters than anyone else. His films, Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Indiana Jones, ET, Jurassic Park and Saving Private Ryan have all had a huge impact on popular culture and set high standards in film making. On the downside he can be horribly smultzy with lovable small children and heavy handed moralizing. His track record of adaptations, e.g. Jaws, Schindler’s List, War of the Worlds and Minority Report, shows that he has an understanding of the sources though he is not afraid to pull the key aspects of the story out and rework everything around them. Whatever Spielberg’s Tintin movie comes out like, we can be assured of high production values and great sense of mainstream entertainment.
