Êtes–vous un rire?

TintinI always found Tintin a bit creepy. He just looked odd in the cartoons, and there was something… French about him.

But my interest in a film version has been twinged by reading who’s involved.

Directing: Steven Spielberg, and then Peter Jackson in a sequel.
Starring: Jamie Bell (a.k.a. Billy Elliott, albeit that’s unfair as he’s been in loads of things now)
And: Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Andy Serkis, Mackenzie Crook
Written by: Steven Moffat (the new man behind Doctor Who), Joe Cornish (of Adam and Joe) and Edgar Wright (of Hot Fuzz).

Now, that sounds like a film!

The first installment’s not out until 2011 though.

P.S. Bonus points if you can translate the title (or what Google Translate tells me the translation is, anyway)

    “Are you laughing?”, isn’t it?

  2. Yeah, it’s supposed to be “Are you ‘avin a laugh” but that’s asking a bit much, I know.

    “Tu es deconne”? That’s my lame attempt.

    Stephen Moffat – he wrote Coupling didn’t he? Maybe Tintin and Prof. Calculus will have a hilarious on off relationship
