Steven Spielberg has just revealed that the sequel is still happening, but it's going to be a little bit longer of a wait, which is great news for fans who have been waiting for some positive updates since 2011.
It has been seven years since Steven Spielberg's animated adventure film The Adventures of Tintin was released. Peter Jackson was supposed to direct the sequel after he was finished with The Hobbit trilogy but there's been radio silence on any development of the project for years.
But while Spielberg was making the press rounds for Ready Player One, Premiere asked him for an update and he confirmed that the sequel is still in development, saying:
"Peter Jackson has to do the second part. Normally, if all goes well, he will soon start working on the script. As it takes two years of animation work on the film, for you, I would not expect to see it for about three years. But Peter will stick to it. Tintin is not dead!"
