Ellen DeGeneres in Talks to Return for 'Finding Nemo' Sequel

HollywoodReporter.com reports: "Ellen DeGeneres is in negotiations to reprise her role in Disney/Pixar's planned Finding Nemo sequel.

Assuming the deal comes together, DeGeneres would voice Dory, a blue tang fish who was suffering from short-term memory loss in the 2003 original film.

Over the years, DeGeneres has not been quiet about her desire to see a Nemo sequel come to fruition, making multiple mentions on her popular syndicated talk show. Writer/director Andrew Stanton (John Carter), who wrote the 2003 film with DeGeneres in mind 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."
