I love it when news gets strange.
Apparently Arvand Dashtarai, a play-write from Tehran, has announced he is going to perform a play based of “The Adventures in Tintin.” The story will be original, called “Tintin and the Secret of Moundas Castle.”
Iranian dramaturge and dramatist Mohammad Charmshir has written the play based on “The Adventures of Tintin” collection written by the Belgian artist Georges Remi — Herge.
“I was interested in the Tintin books since I was a little boy. All of his adventures and curiosity have had a great influence on me, and I wanted to pay my debt of gratitude to Herge,” Dashtarai said in an interview.
I have no idea how the rights of this are being handled…or what Moulinsart thinks about this.
What do you think? Can this happen with (or without) Moulinsart’s approval? Does anybody want to see it?
