Andy Serkis reteams with Peter Jackson

Andy Serkis, who brought Tolkien's Gollum to life in the Lord of the Rings movies, has hooked back up with Peter Jackson to play Captain Haddock in a forthcoming adaptation of Tintin, the Hollywood Reporter has announced.

DreamWorks' Tintin project is a three part series. Steven Spielberg and Jackson will each take the helm for an episode, with the third directorial participant yet to be announced. Agreeably for Doctor Who fans, Steven Moffat will adapt Herge's comic book character for the big screen.

The Tintin trilogy will be created using performance-capture tech and presented in digital 3-D. ®
