Moffat to write Tintin trilogy

DreamWorks is producing a movie trilogy that adapts the European comic strip, Tintin, which will be motion-capture digital 3d, and a collaboration from Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg. That in itself is awesome news — I was a huge fan of Tintin as a kid, when I’d read my library’s hardcover collections of the strip.

Even better, though, is the announcement that the entire trilogy is being written by Steven Moffat — my favorite writer on Doctor Who (he wrote “The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances” for the 2005 season, “The Girl in the Fireplace” for 2006, and “Blink” for 2007), who also wrote Jekyll, among many other things.

HELL yes.
