Thomas to star as Tintin

According to the latest news reports (Guardian, Telegraph), A-level pupil Thomas Sangster (17) will star as legendary comic hero Tintin in the upcoming movie adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg.

The A -level student has previously acted in major roles in Love Actually and Nanny McPhee.

Some trivia:

Tintin was created by Belgian artist Hergé.
The Hero is a young Belgian reporter.
Professor Calculus is Professeur Tournesol in French.
The nationality of Captain Haddock, Tintin's close friend, is not mentioned but I think he's British and so are the bumbling twins, Thomson and Thompson (Dupond et Dupont in French). I may be mistaken though.
