Paramount and Sony Pictures have told the Nest that their 3-D motion capture feature movie The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn to be produced by Spielberg, Peter Jackson, and Kathleen Kennedy will be released on December 23rd 2011.

Starring Jamie Bell (of Billy Elliot fame) as Tintin, the young reporter whose pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure, and Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace) as the Red Rackham, the cast also includes Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook.


The film, which began production in January 2009, is the first of a planned series of 3D motion capture films based on the character created by Georges Remi, better known by his pen name Herge. The first film's screenplay is by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish.
