Spielberg and Tin-Tin Sitting in a Tree
According to my husband, this has come up in the past before. On occasion, news articles will toss out the fact that Steven Spielberg has the rights to Tin-Tin and is on the brink of producing some kind of movie. Then nothing happens and everyone forgets about it for another 5 years. Now it looks like Dreamworks is, "gearing up for pre-production on the film." That still doesn't really mean anything, but I hope they realize that the time has never been riper for this movie to come out. I've kids practically begging me on bended knee for Tin-Tin books at NYPL all the time.
Of course, why Spielberg as a director? Isn't he the same guy that digitally removed guns from officers' hands when E.T. was re-released? How likely are we to see Tin-Tin sporting his usual array of firepower? Then again, maybe Mr. S just doesn't approve of adults carrying guns. Kids, though? Totally cool.
Thanks to bookshelves of doom for the link.
