Albert Brooks Set For ‘Finding Nemo’ Sequel

Finding Nemo – Marlin

The Finding Nemo sequel is still happening. We know this because Deadline has just announced that Albert Brooks will return to voice Nemo’s worrisome dad, Marlin.

Andrew Stanton is, once again, set to direct. He’s co-writing the script with Victoria Strouse. Details of the plot are currently under wraps, but you can count Dory in. It was previously reported that Ellen DeGeneres planned to return for Finding Nemo 2.

The original Pixar film won big in 2003. It received an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature (though there wasn’t a lot of competition) and was the second-highest grossing film of 2003. There’s no doubt that the producers are hoping to score big with this sequel. The film is set for a 2016 release date.

As of right now, this animated feature seems to be the only thing on Brooks’ schedule (though he’s a full-time Twitter-er). He recently appeared in Judd Apatow’s This Is 40.

    You gotta be joking. They better not fuck this movie up, it shouldn’t even be happening in the first place. Todays little kids don’t even know what the FIRST Finding Nemo is and they certainly still wont 3 years from now

    I miss Pixar making original flicks. I mean a sequel every now and again is cool, but every movie? Did Monster’s Inc really need a prequel? Some of their movies are so good, I’d rather not see a sequel. Finding Nemo (to me) is one of them. I find it odd that the one movie that SHOULD get a sequel (The Incredibles) doesn’t.

    That said, Andrew Stanton is the man (John Carter was awesome, I don’t care what anybody says). So this will probably surprise me.
