'Finding Nemo' Sequel Actually Happening With Director Andrew Stanton

18 July 2012 6:20 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

By Meg Malone

Let the happy memories of swimming along with Marlin and Dory (well, minus a few perils of the ocean here and there) come flooding back, because there's some exciting news on the Pixar front. In an exclusive report, Deadline confirmed that Andrew Stanton will be back for the sequel to the 2003 underwater adventure, "Finding Nemo."

Stanton directed and also co-wrote the screenplay for the original "Finding Nemo," which won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. He later directed "Wall-e," which also earned an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, and more recently, Stanton directed the live-action "John Carter," which premiered in March but unfortunately wasn't as hot a box office commodity as was hoped.

Deadline reported that the studio is said to be impressed with the concept Stanton has for the "Finding Nemo" sequel — though, Deadline also noted that when it comes to development, Pixar doesn't provide comments. »

Andrew Stanton to Direct Finding Nemo 2; May Direct Another Live-Action Feature for Disney

17 July 2012 11:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Writer/director Andrew Stanton has been behind some of the very best films in Pixar’s repertoire (and that’s saying something).  He co-wrote Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3, and Monsters Inc., and he wrote and directed the magnificent one-two punch of Finding Nemo and Wall-e.  Stanton made his live-action debut earlier this year with the criminally underseen sci-fi epic John Carter, and now it looks like he’ll be returning to Pixar for his next feature, Finding Nemo 2.  Hit the jump for more. Per Deadline, Stanton has now officially come onboard to direct Finding Nemo 2 with a concept that the studio apparently loves.  THR adds that Victoria Krouse is writing the screenplay, with Lindsey Collins onboard as the film's producer (she co-produced Wall-e and produced John Carter).  A 2016 release date is apparently being eyed.  We’ve been hearing rumblings of a possible Finding Nemo follow-up for a while now, »

Andrew Stanton to Direct Pixar's 'Finding Nemo' Sequel

17 July 2012 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Andrew Stanton is heading back to animation, signing on to direct a sequel to Pixar’s Finding Nemo, the 2003 modern classic he co-directed. Victoria Strouse, who wrote the 2008 Black list script The Apostles of Infinite Love, is writing the script and Lindsey Collins is producing. A 2016 release date is being eyed.

The move could be perceived as a return to a safer ground after the disastrous results of John Carter, Stanton's big live-action debut. The movie’s performance forced Disney to take a $200 million write-down. And while the

34 Things We Learned From the ‘Wall*E’ Commentary

21 June 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Oh, those geeks and their wonderful ways of storing minuscule tidbits of information and pulling them from their mental storage unit to spur on debates. What must it be like to listen to a group of them talk about a movie they love? How about a movie they’ve all worked on? That’s exactly what Disney and Pixar did for Wall*E. They’ve pulled four of the geekiest minds on the production crew, minds that would analyze every, minute detail of a film and test it for accuracy, and let them talk all over the film. And, like any good geek conversation, the pop cultural references come with each, nerdy breath. So, without any further ado, it’s time to find out what this Geek Squad has to say about Wall*E. Wall*E (2007) commentators: Bill Wise (character supervisor), Lindsey Collins (co-producer), Derek Thompson (story artist), Angus MacLane (production and storyboard artist, voice »

John Carter . The Blu Review

By Joe Vanourney

Disney.s John Carter landed in theaters this past March with a thud.  Based on the classic novel .A Princess of Mars. by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the film was supposed to be the first of a trilogy in a big new franchise for the studio. Instead, it ended up being disastrous.with the studio losing millions of dollars, and marketing staff and executives losing their jobs.

So what went wrong?   After all, this was a loved and admired book that many studios and handfuls of  writers and directors have tried to bring to the screen for decades.  The director that finally got it made, Andrew Stanton, was coming off two Giant successes in the animation world.Finding Nemo and Wall*E.  The story is an epic.one that should lend itself to a successful franchise.

One might argue that the screenplay by Stanton, »

Review: John Carter

4 June 2012 10:09 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The problem with being a trendsetter is that if you’re successful, you get imitated time and time again. Such was the fate that befell Edgar Rice Burroughs’ pulp heroes Tarzan and John Carter. The thriller-seeking readers of pulp magazines were enthralled by Erb’s pulse-pounding, straight-forward prose, which was strong in ideas and weak in word craft. A century ago, Burroughs, writing as Norman Bean, serialized his first Martian saga in All-Story between February and July 1912. It found an eager audience and was later collected in book form as A Princess of Mars. Through the years, there came more adventures with and without Carter set on the red planet natives named Barsoom.

I discovered the stories through the compelling Frank Frazetta covers on the Science Fiction Book Club editions and thought the stories were interesting. Clearly I was not alone because time and again, people in comics tried to »

John Carter Blu-ray Review

4 June 2012 8:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Movie Pool checks out one of the best films of 2012 so far: John Carter on Blu-ray!

The Set-up

A Civil War veteran (Taylor Kitsch) discovers an ancient artifact that transports him to Mars, where he joins a struggle against a powerful race determined to rule the planet and enslave everyone else. Based on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novel.

Directed by: Andrew Stanton

The Delivery

Forget about the fact that the film bombed at the box office: John Carter is one of the better movies of 2012 so far. A classically-delivered adventure with a truly epic feel, John Carter manages to capture the spirit of the original novel without being overwhelmed by the complicated plot. It excels in almost every way, and director Andrew Stanton (Wall-e) infuses the characters with enough heart and soul to have the viewers buy into the story and their plight.

Fans of John Carter campaign for sequel as Disney's Martian sci-fi epic tops UK box office and makes $100m worldwide

18 March 2012 6:06 PM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

More than 3,000 fans of John Carter are campaigning for a sequel as Disney's Martian sci-fi epic defies the doomsayers to top the UK box office and open with more than $100million worldwide.

With a budget reported as an astronomical $250million - but rumoured to be even higher - and abysmal marketing, the film was widely expected to be a complete flop.

Mixed reviews from critics didn't help to give the film a strong sales pitch and it's true to say that the Us launch was disappointing, with John Carter making $30.2million and debuting at No2, unable to nudge Universal's animated feature The Lorax from holding on to the top spot for a second week.

But it did fairly well overseas, taking almost £71million. In the UK, the film has topped the box office chart, knocking The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel into second place.

14 March 2012 5:50 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Watch this new clip – .Woola Will Follow You Anywhere. – from John Carter. Having seen the film twice I can tell you some of the most endearing parts are about everyone.s favorite Barsoomian pet! A must-see in 3D too.

John Carter is a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars) and is based on a classic novel byEdgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film, directed by Academy Award®.winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton, tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins).

John Carter hits theaters today. And whether you’re buying into the hype that it’s a big-budget film that is destined to fail or you’re listening to the great number of film critics — including our own Robert Levin — who are saying that despite its faults, it’s the first legitimate event film of the year, it’s still going to be hitting theaters. For those seeking more information before a decision is made, we’ve got you covered. Over the next several days we’ll be rolling out conversations with John Carter‘s creative team, including the likes of director Andrew Stanton, producers Lindsey Collins and John Morris, as well as some of the film’s stars.

Producer Lindsey Collins Talks John Carter, Deleted Scenes, and an R-Rated Galaxy Quest?!

9 March 2012 10:41 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As I said in the intro to my interview with John Carter producer Jim Morris, while it’s always great to talk with actors, if you want to hear why certain key decisions were made, you’ve got to talk with the filmmakers.  After all, while an actor might have a great behind the scenes story (like my interview with Taylor Kitsch), the producer can tell you what deleted scenes will be on the eventual Blu-ray, and what the filmmakers learned from showing the film to the Pixar brain trust.   But without a doubt, the best part of talking with a producer is the stuff that comes up that you weren't expecting.  Like hearing about an R-rated cut of Galaxy Quest!   If anyone at the studio is reading this, fans would love to see this cut.  Think about a special edition home video release.  Please! Anyway, the other week, Disney »

John Carter, Disney’s adventure epic that opens in theaters March 9, is based on the Barsoom series by Edgar Rice Burroughs, which was written about 100 years ago.

Tracing John Carter's 100 Year Journey to the Big Screen

7 March 2012 7:23 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've heard a lot of reactions from people who have seen the TV spots and trailers for Disney's John Carter. Most of them are along the lines of "it looks like Attack of the Clones" or "oh, so it's Avatar in the desert?" Not quite. While John Carter might seem derivative of about a dozen other movies, the argument could be made that it's really the other way around. John Carter feels to me like a timeless, old-fashioned swashbuckling adventure movie -- the kind I remember watching with my dad when I was younger and the kind I can see myself returning to with my own children several years from now. The fact that the film is 100 years in the making might have something to do with that. Edgar Rice Burroughs, best known as the creator of Tarzan, first introduced John Carter in a magazine serial in 1912. His adventures on »

Interview: Lynn Collins Talks about Becoming a Princess of Mars in 'John Carter'

6 March 2012 6:59 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Lynn Collins, who's probably most recognizable to this point as Kayla Silverfox from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, knows it's rare you find a female character as strong as Dejah Thoris, the female lead in Disney's John Carter. The trick is getting the audience to look beyond her obvious physical beauty and see a character there. But the fact she wears little more than a few pieces of decorative jewelry in Edgar Rice Borroughs' source materiel makes it all the more difficult. "We didn't want to make her only visually enticing," Collins explained. "We, [director Andrew Stanton] and I, wanted to make sure the first thoughts are 'who is she? what is she thinking,' not 'damn, look at those double Ds,' you know? In one way, we had to pare it down and cover it up a lot." Still, it's hard to imagine Collins won't be ushering in a whole new generation of »
