Stanton most recently helmed John Carter, and speculation about Disney wanting an easy hit from the Pixar director has commenced. Stanton was also behind the beautiful WALL.E, and co-directed A Bug’s Life, so his animated pedigree is unquestionable.
THR adds that Victoria Strouse, author of the 2008 Black list script The Apostles of Infinite Love, is writing the script and Lindsey Collins willprd. A 2016 release date is being eyed.
Prior to the Finding Nemo sequel, there will also be The Good Dinosaur, The Untitled Pixar Movie that Takes You Inside the Mind and The Untitled Pixar Movie About Día de los Muertos.
