British writer on "Tintin" case
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - British scribe Steven Moffat, best known for writing the new "Doctor Who" series, is turning his hand to "Tintin," the DreamWorks movie trilogy collaboration from Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg.
Tintin, created by late Belgian artist Herge, is a young reporter and world traveller who is aided in his adventures by his faithful dog Snowy. He later was joined by such colourful characters as Captain Haddock, Professor Cuthbert Calculus and bumbling detectives Thomson and Thompson.
The books, hugely popular in Europe, have been translated into 50 languages with more than 200 million sold.
Jackson and Spielberg are each directing an instalment, with the helmer of the third movie to be determined.
