He is, however, producer of the (in my opinion dreadful) modern Tintin adaptation, apparently to eventually be a series, the first of which was directed by Spielberg, who also directed Indiana Jones, and who was introduced to Tintin when French journalists compared "Raiders of the Lost Ark" to it.

So the parallels are pretty striking.

Speaking of Jackson's King Kong, apparently it received good reviews. I remember thinking as a 16 year old that it was CGI-ridden rubbish.
