Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who voiced Dory's character in Finding Nemo, is in talks to return to the sequel of the animation classic about a lost fish.
In case you're wondering why we're talking about the animated film that created a buzz almost 9 years back, the reason is that Finding Nemo is going to re-release in a 3D version and is in fact hitting Indian screens three weeks before its US release. Here's a trip fown memory lane.
If the deal comes through, DeGeneres would voice Dory, a blue tang fish who was suffering from short-term memory loss in the 2003
original film, the Hollywood Reporter said.
Writer-director Andrew Stanton, who scripted the 2003 film and co-directed it, is set to return for the follow-up. Victoria Strouse is writing the script and Lindsey Collins is producing.
A 2016 release date is projected. The original, which won the Academy award for best animated feature, is still the highest-grossing orignal Pixar movie, earning USD 868 million to date worldwide.
The original film is being re-released in theatres next month in 3D.
