Peter Jackson to direct "Tintin" sequel

Director Steven Spielberg says Peter Jackson will direct the "Tintin" sequel after the pair struck a deal before the first installment of the animated project.

Spielberg directed the first movie based on the comic character of the same name, Contactmusic reported.

"Peter (Jackson)'s doing it. I wanted to do it, but Peter has to because we made a deal. I said, 'I'll direct the first one, you direct the second one.

"And Peter, of course, is going to do it right after he finishes photography on "The Hobbit". He'll go right into the 31, 21 days of performance capture. We're not telling the world what books we're basing the second movie on yet," Spielberg said.

Despite the 65-year-old refusing to reveal which tomes will be used on the second movie, producer Kathleen Kennedy recently hinted 'The Calculus Affair' is a strong possibility.

"We haven't decided that yet. She's throwing a monkey wrench into your story! It could be that. I like 'The Calculus Affair'. So it could be.

"We have completed a story outline now. We have a writer on it. I'm just not declaring what it is. It will be more than one book, but no more than two," Spielberg said.
