Movie news that makes me giddy

To explain why this fills me with joy:
1) I grew up with Tintin.  I love Tintin.
2) Two of my favorite characters are Thomson and Thompson.  I can picture every panel of them in Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon.
3) With all his faults, I still really love Spielberg.  No, he doesn't push the envelope often but he is a master at telling a story visually.
4) I very much respect Peter Jackson.  If there is a master of motion capture it is him.
5) Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are a brilliant team.

So Pegg and Frost as Thomson and Thompson makes me pee may pants a bit.
