James Bond actor Daniel Craig will play Red Rackham and English actor Jamie Bell the young reporter Tintin in a largely British cast in an animated film version of one of the Tintin adventures.

Bell, who shot to fame as a teenage ballet dancer in Billy Elliot, will take the lead in The Adventures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Unicorn, directed by Steven Spielberg, reports mirror.co.uk.

The 22-year-old will provide the voice and motion for the Belgian reporter in the movie, which will use 3D motion-capture technology to create a realistic look.

Craig, who featured alongside Bell in the recent Second World War drama Defiance, will play Red Rackham, one of the villains in the adventure, which is due for release in 2011.
