Veteran composer John Williams is doing the score for The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn, Steven Spielberg's and Peter Jackson's first film based on the classic Hergé comic books. The assignment has been confirmed by Williams' agent, the Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency, and will have fans expecting another classic film theme from the composer of such orchestral hits as the Indiana Jones theme, Star Wars, Superman, Jurassic Park and Harry Potter. Jamie Bell is doing the part as Tintin, and other cast members will include Daniel Craig and Andy Serkis. According to news reports, Peter Jackson is going to direct the sequel. A trilogy of films are planned, with the first one coming out in 2011. 77-year old Williams' latest score was last year's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - his 24th (!) feature with Steven Spielberg.
