The official news is that "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" is entirely shot but it will take two more years to finish its whole production. Although "Paramount" has put December 23rd, 2011 as its release date, Peter Jackson has recently told BBC that the movie is done but it is in a rough state and it will take a very long time to render it. It is interesting that Steven Spielberg has spent 30 days directing "Tintin" this spring and then he handed it over to Peter Jackson, who is now supposed to work on it for two years.
At the same time, Jackson also gave some new update on "Hobbit": "We're currently working on the second script which we hope to have completed by the end of this year or beginning of next. When the scripts are completed, we can begin with the exact calculation of the necessary budget. We hope to start filming in the middle of next year. However, we've received no green light from the studio yet." It will take more than a whole year to shoot the two complete "Hobbit" films, but the second part is not expected to be released before 2012, while the first one is also scheduled for December 2011.
