Perhaps burned by the disastrous live-action experience that was JOHN CARTER, director Andrew Stanton appears to be going back to the drawing board – or should that be – the computer screen drawing board. It’s been confirmed that Stanton is set to helm another underwater adventure involving everyone’s favourite missing fish.
Stanton’s 2003 animated hit FINDING NEMO is still a firm family favourite but, until recently, the director was reluctant to return to one of Pixar’s biggest efforts. The first film is considered his ‘baby’, as Stanton devised the original concept. No word yet whether the excellent Albert Brooks returns to voice overprotective and hyper-active father Marlin, or any of the previous voice cast for that matter but we can only hope!
THN, as always, will keep you up-to-date as things develop.
