Principal photography on The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn movie has started. The little quiffy reporter is being brought to life by both Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, and has Daniel Craig and Jamie Bell starring in the film. There's pirates too. Shiver my fantasy timbers.

Paramount and Sony have told SFcrowsnest that they have started principal production in LA on The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Jamie - Billy Elliot - Bell as Tintin, the reporter whose pursuit of a breaking story thrusts him into a world of high adventure (much like the news team at SFcrowsnest, in fact), and Daniel Craig as the pirate Red Rackham.

Bell and Craig are joined by a cast that includes Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook. The second feature in the series is scheduled to be directed by Jackson, with a potential for a third film as well.

The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn is the first in the series of 3D motion capture films based on the character created by Georges Remi, aka Herge, and is due for release in 2011. Executive producers are Nick Rodwell, Stephane Sperry and Ken Kamins.

Spielberg and Jackson are bringing Herge's stories to the screen using the same performance capture gear developed by Jackson's Weta Digital.
