Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, John Carter) is all aboard directing and writing FINDING NEMO 2 for Disney/Pixar Deadline is reporting. The 3D version of the original film is due for release later in the year in Australia and the United States. Stanton helmed this years biggest loser JOHN CARTER to the tune of $200m write down for Disney (the Lowdown will be going into JOHN CARTER soon to actually show if it really was as big a disaster as everyone touts) but the studio has not lost faith in the man himself. Remembering that NEMO is the 3rd highest grossing animated film for the studio why wouldn’t you keep that sort of talent in the fold?
And hell I’d rapt to see Dory on screen again!
3D FINDING NEMO releases in AUSTRALIA on AUGUST 30, 2012 through WALT DISNEY MOTION PICTURES STUDIOS
