Steve & Peter & Snowy

Word on the street is that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are teaming up to produce and direct three Tin Tin movies based on the classic Belgian comics. Peter's Kiwi friends at WETA Digital, (who did the effects for Lord of The Rings and the Narnia movies), will do the animation for the movie using "performance capture technology," (that's how Andy Sirkis performed King Kong in Jackson's recent remake). It won't look cartoony though- Jackson said they're going for a "photo-realistic" look. Steve and Peter will each direct at least one of the movies, and apparently things should get started as soon as Steve wraps the fourth Indiana Jones movie and Jackson finishes his adaptation of Alice Sebold's Lovely Bones.

I wonder if the new Tin Tin movie will look anything like this:

Or maybe more like this:
