In a recent Comic-Con interview, Peter Jackson mentioned this about Tintin 2:
The filmmakers plan to switch roles on the next one, with Jackson directing a follow-up that he said will move Tintin “to a slightly different genre, a slightly less of a rollicking adventure and something a bit more, a little bit more of a sort of espionage type of story. So it’s a slight tone shift, which I think will be good.”
Though this doesn’t confirm anything, ”espionage” does sound a whole lot more like The Calculus Affair than any other album. A combination of The Shooting Star” and ”Red Rackham’s Treasure,” proposed by some guessing fans as what Tintin 2 could be like, doesn’t seem to fit that feel as much.
Especially now that I’m going to Nyon, I admit I would be very excited if The Calculus Affair was the next film choice. Calculus could be introduced as a scientist they need to rescue that they get to know as they save him perhaps, rather than a character they already know. No matter how they do it, there’s potential in the album for a movie, that’s for sure.
