Pixar's beloved clown-fish-out-of-water story "Finding Nemo" is scheduled for a theatrical re-release in 3D beginning on September 14th but what is equally, if not more, exiting to fans of the film is the "Finding Nemo" sequel that is currently in development.

It is now being reported that "Nemo" writer/director Andrew Stanton is set to return for the follow-up with a concept of his own design.

Stanton who released his first live-action endeavor, "John Carter," this year had expressed some concerns about a sequel in a previous interview with Coming Soon.

"[A sequel has] always kind of put a bad taste in my mouth because I never planned for that... We have said this at Pixar now. We've kind of come to terms with it. We're not against a sequel being made as long as it's a story we love so much that we'd be dying just to make it, so we're just waiting for stories to tell us if it's worthy of doing. Right now, I've never been able to think of anything beyond what 'Nemo' was on its own."

Pixar has a tradition of producing successful sequels ("Toy Story") so it will be interesting to track "Finding Nemo 2"'s progression.

Victoria Strouse will pen the script with Lyndsey Collins producing.

There is a tentative 2016 release date scheduled for the film.

We will keep you updated as details emerge.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
