Filmmaker Andrew Stanton Confirms 'Finding Nemo' Sequel
Nearly 10 years after the original movie was released, filmmaker Andrew Stanton has confirmed he is working on a sequel to hit film "Finding Nemo." The original film earned an incredible $867 million at the box office.
Stanton, who wrote and directed the original, says the film will be released in 2016. A 3D version of the original will be re-released in September.
The animated comedy-adventure centers on a clown fish who searches for his son in a very large ocean. The film was inspired by a fleeting moment of realization in which Stanton observed that his overprotective fatherly instincts were preventing him from properly bonding with his son. The impressive voice cast includes Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres and Willem Dafoe.
Stanton also helped write "Toy Story" and "Monsters Inc." The former has produced two sequels with a possible third edition in the works, and a "Monsters Inc." follow-up is also planned.
The moviemaker recently helmed the hugely disappointing Disney film "John Carter."
