Albert Brooks signs up for Finding Nemo 2
The man who provides the voice of Marlin, Albert Brooks, has signed on the dotted line to reprise the role in Finding Nemo 2...
Following John Carter's rather undeserved critical savaging and lack of commercial success, Andrew Stanton announced last year that he was set to return to Pixar to direct the sequel to Finding Nemo. Little is known of the plot so far, but shortly after the announcement was made. Ellen DeGenres was confirmed to returning to voice Dory. Now it's also been announced that Albert Brooks will also return to voice Marlin.
There was a delay in getting Brooks back on board, perhaps unsurprising given that he's such an in-demand man. Of late, he's been writing successfully, and he's had roles in Drive and This Is 40. But he'll definitely be back on Finding Nemo duties.
The script for Finding Nemo 2 will be penned by Victoria Strouse and no doubt Stanton will have some input also. The film is currently pencilled in for a 2016 release.
Once this one's done, can we have a sequel to The Incredibles please, Pixar?
