The screenplay for the sequel is already written, courtesy of Anthony Horowitz (Injustice), and is based on two of Herge's books titled "Prisoners of the Sun," which could be the title for the second film, and "The Seven Crystal Balls." #NoRazB. While word about a possible third film has been batted around, Spielberg claimed, "We haven't talked about that."

The first Tintin film, subtitled Secret of the Unicorn, will be released to theaters on December 21. Spielberg took on the directorial duty, while Jackson served as the producer.
