Award-winning teen star Jamie Bell has slammed reports he is set to star in a forthcoming screen version of TINTIN.

Director Stephen Daldry is planning to remake the classic French adventure stories as a cinematic extravaganza, and although Bell was tipped to play the quiff-sporting hero, the young actor insists the claims are unfounded.

He says, "Who makes these rumours up? I mean, really.

"It would be fantastic, but it's news to me."
