Find­ing Nemo II

Direc­tor Andrew Stan­ton is return­ing to full ani­ma­tion with a sequel to Pixar’s 2003 clas­sic Find­ing Nemo.

The stu­dio is look­ing at a 2016 release date for the film. Vic­to­ria Strouse (2008’s The Apos­tles of Infi­nite Love) is writ­ing the script, while Lind­sey Collins is the producer.

Stan­ton was a co-director of the orig­i­nal Nemo. He ran into rough waters with his live-action debut, Disney’s John Carter, which forced the Mouse House into a $200 mil­lion writedown.

The new Pixar release will occupy most of Stanton’s time for about the next four years. The orig­i­nal Nemo won sev­eral Oscars, includ­ing one for best ani­mated picture.

Pixar is in pro­duc­tion on a sequel to another fea­ture film, Mon­sters Inc. titled Mon­sters Uni­ver­sity, to be released next year.

The stu­dio is work­ing on three new projects. The Good Dinosaur, directed by Bob Peter­son, is sched­uled for release May 30, 2014. An unti­tled inside the mind project by Pete Doc­tor (Up) is slated to reach the­aters June 19, 2015.

Another unti­tled movie — about Dia de los muer­tos — by Nemo co-director Lee Unkrich, is planned, but no release date has been announced.
