We’ve seen Jamie Bell on-screen as everything from boy reporter to Roman soldier, but I never thought I’d see him as “The Thing” from the Fantastic Four. I’m sure he’s been pressed with loads of questions about his role in the next big Marvel blockbuster-but the main thing French folks from Premiere want to know, of course, is when (or even if) Tintin 2 is going to happen. Jamie Bell was hesitant to give a definite answer:
“I’m crossing my fingers that filming will start towards the end of next year. But that’s not 100 percent confirmed.”
Still, he was confident that the film is still going to happen:
“The project is still current.”
The projects that were clogging Jackson’s schedule are finally out of the way, so hopefully Jamie’s projected timeframe comes true. If it does though, that 2016 IMDB date will have to be pushed back at least a year, in the very best of scenarios.
This means that at least 6 years will pass between the first film’s release and Tintin 2. I can’t speak for the rest of the world, but I hope they do a much better job marketing the film in the US this time around-what’s left of the film’s memory in the States is quickly fading.
