So, a long time ago we were told that Tintin 2 would be adapted from the album Prisoners of the Sun (and The Seven Crystal Balls, which precedes it). Then we were told that it not be those two, and we were left guessing and speculating. Now it appears that they might have stuck with the original plan. But the info is still questionable, so don’t count on knowing all the facts just yet. The information comes from the Latinos Post that cites an interview from ScreenCrush. The line of interest for Tintin fans, written at the end of the article, is:
Kennedy was recently nominated for an Academy Award for her work on “Lincoln” and is currently in Pre-production for “The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun”
Now this isn’t a direct quote from Kennedy and we can’t find anything elsewhere to back this up. But it is possible that she revealed it and everybody is so interested in Star Wars VII, the focus of the article, that few have given the info much attention. On the other hand, it is possible that Latino Post is working on outdated information.
I still think Prisoners of the Sun would be a great adventure to introduce Calculus in (and even stay true to the chronology of Tintin). I’ve been saying this for months, but hopefully new news will come soon.
