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.
