And here lies the main reason Daniel Craig passed on “Thor”….

The James Bond star is on board Spielberg & Jackson’s “Tintin” – and you know what, If I had to choose (not that I’d ever have to – I’m more likely to have to choose between a wheat roll or a multigrain roll) between the two, I’d go for the latter too, If only because Marvel will probably cough up a low-ball figure when it comes to salary negotiations.

The movie will reunite Craig with his “Defiance” co-star Jamie Bell.

Craig (“Quantum of Solace,” “Defiance”) will play the nefarious Red Rackham. Bell (“Billy Elliot”, “King Kong”) has been cast as Tintin.

Bell and Craig are joined by an international cast that includes Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook.

“The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn,” from a screenplay by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, is produced by Spielberg, Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy, is the first in the series of 3D motion capture films based on the iconic character created by Georges Remi, better known to the world by his pen name “Herge” and is due for release in 2011. Executive producers are Nick Rodwell, Stephane Sperry and Ken Kamins. Paramount Pictures will release domestically and in all English speaking territories and Asia, excluding India. Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute the film in Continental Europe, Eastern Europe, Latin America, India and the remainder of the world.

The second feature in the series is scheduled to be directed by Jackson, with a potential for a third film as well.

Eighty years ago, Herge introduced the world to a unique cast of characters who have been embraced by readers of all ages. The Adventures of Tintin – a series of 24 books, the final unfinished adventure was published after Herge’s – death became Herge’s life’s work. The first adventure was published in 1929. Over 200 million copies have been sold worldwide. The popular series has been translated into 70 languages and still attracts thousands of new fans each year.

Thanks to ‘Sony’, ‘Paramount’
