'Tintin'After wrapping up 32 days of "performance-capture lensing" for “Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn,” director Steven Spielberg will hand off the film for post-production duties to producer Peter Jackson (“Lord of the Rings”).

According to Variety, Spielberg's performance-capture lensing would seem to be the equivalent of principal photography on the film, but the relatively new motion-capture technology in use for the rest of "Tintin" will be handled by Jackson at his special effects studio in New Zealand.

Spielberg will hold the lone directing credit on the film -- an interesting note, given that his primary duties last just over a month, while Jackson's post-production editing, special effects and other responsibilities are expected to take at least 18 months to complete. Read More...

During this year's New York Comic Con, veteran novelist and newly minted “Detective Comics” writer Greg Rucka sat down with MTV News to discuss the upcoming big-screen adaptation of his graphic novel “Whiteout," directed by Dominic Sena and starring Kate Beckinsale. While Rucka assured fans that the film would be faithful to its source material, the writer offered up some frank comments about the adaptation process-- and how it's usually received.

“I was with Steve Lieber, my co-creator on it, and we’re walking around these South Pole-based sets, and it was like walking through Steve’s drawings,” Rucka told MTV News Saturday. “The thing is, unless you’re Frank Miller and you’re going to do 'Sin City' or something like that shot for shot, you’re not going to get a comic book on a movie screen -- and you shouldn’t."

New photos popping up from the set of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” showing unidentified people in motion-capture suits have once again brought the discussion back to the subject of how much animation will be present in director Edgar Wright's adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's popular series.

'Scott Pilgrim' Mo-Cap

The new photo, posted in Wright's photo blog yesterday, depicts a pair of people clad in the mo-cap suits often used for digital animation of actors. While "Scott Pilgrim" actor Brandon Routh previously announced that the film would blend live-action with animation, O'Malley subsequently told MTV that Routh's comments were "blown out of proportion" with regard to the amount of animation in the film.
