Steven Spielberg And Peter Jackson Talk 'The Adventures Of Tintin'

With two of the most respected names in cinema, Steven Speilberg and Peter Jackson, a story that is good enough for Indie and breathtaking graphics, "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of The Unicorn" is no ordinary cartoon.

Originally penned by Belgian artist Hergé, the newest "Tintin" has been brought to life by the two visionaries."The Secret of The Unicorn" traces the legacy of a mysterious piece of parchment and the henchman who are trying to find it before the boy hero.

While the two bigwig directors might seem like old chums, they actually first met in front of millions when Speilberg handed off the Oscar to Jackson for his Best Picture win for "Return of the King" in 2008.

The Hollywood Reporter sat down with them to discuss what brought them both to their much-talked-about collaboration.
