Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

Tin Tin Movie

I read in the newspaper the other day that Steven Spielberg is making a movie of Tin Tin. Or maybe has just acquired the rights. Either way, the news is exciting. I presume that the movie will be live action. Finally we’ll get to see Tin Tin, the boy adventurer, and his white terrier, Snowy, on the screen. And possibly the detective, the Thompson Twins, the professor and other characters from Tin Tin’s various adventures.

The characters were created by the Belgian artist, Herge, who created twenty-one graphic novels over his career. Very successful, fun to read, and still in print after many decades. I hope Spielberg hurries the process forward and that I get to see the movie before long. After all, I’m an old guy. Something to look forward to.

This is one I'd love to cast. Maybe Rowan Atkinson as both of the twin detectives (Thompson & Thompson?), Maybe Jack Black as the Sea Captain.
