Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson may go a step further in their plans for three Tintin movies - by jointly directing the third instalment.

Spielberg raised the possibility before the release of his latest film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival at the weekend.

"We are going to make three Tintin movies back-to-back. I'll direct the first one, Peter will direct the second one. We'll probably co-direct the third one."

It was too early to say which of the Tintin books would be filmed. The first would start in September.

Spielberg had never heard of Tintin till 1981, when a film critic compared his first Indiana Jones adventure, Raiders of the Lost Ark, to the books.
