Albert Brooks To Return In ‘Finding Nemo’ Sequel

Marlin might have already found Nemo, but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have a role to play in the upcoming “Finding Nemo 2.” It’s being reported that Albert Brooks will return as the father clownfish in the new movie.

Deadline has the news, though it’s unclear what role Marlin will have in the movie. He’ll rejoin original director Andrew Stanton and fellow voice actor Ellen DeGeneres in the upcoming flick.

But what of Alexander Gould, who voiced Nemo in “Finding Nemo”? And considering the tiny clownfish has already been found, what will “Finding Nemo 2″ be about? That remains to be seen, but at least Stanton seems optimistic about the project.

“There are some stories, there are some characters, there are some subplots that do benefit, if handled correctly, by going longer,” he said at the 2012 Hero Complex Film Festival. “I’m sure you’ll see some other sequels of things as they grow because now we [Pixar] are not so blinded. It’s the originals that keep us really going and it’s the sequels that are like comfort food, and I think it’s the same way for the audience.”

“Finding Nemo 2″ is due out in 2016, 13 years after “Finding Nemo” first hit theaters.
