Moffatt on Tin Tin

(with thanks to Jeremy Briggs) The Hollywood Reporter and Empire Magazine reports that Steven Moffat, acclaimed writer on Doctor Who and Jekyll, is to write the trilogy of Tintin films being overseen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson.

The directors will each make one of the films, with a director for the third still to be announced. Steven Moffat will write the screenplay for all three.

Moffat wrote the Hugo Award-winning episode The Girl in the Fireplace and the recent Blink episodes of Doctor Who.

The first film is set to be filmed with motion capture technology and will be simultaneously released in 3D.
