Once you calm down from the title let me give you the details. According to Deadline Director Andrew Stanton will be climbing on board the sequel train with Finding Nemo 2. Disney must like the sale pitch because they have green lit the project, but in Pixar fashion there are absolutely no details on the film other than a 2016 release date.
I wish I had more details but that is all that is out there.
Don’t forget Finding Nemo is set for a big-screen re-release in 3D September 14.

‘Thor 2′ has just hit a bump in the road on it’s way to the screen. Patty Jenkins was set to helm Marvel’s follow up to this years blockbuster, has just stepped down as director of the project. Deadline was the first to break the news, citing creative differences between her and Marvel Studios. But there is no bad blood between the two, as Deadline is quick to point out that Patty Jenkins may be directing another one of Marvel’s films, it just won’t be ‘Thor 2′. So the search is on for a new director, and with the movie just a little less than two years away from it’s release date of November 15, 2013, it’s safe to say Marvel will be hiring someone fairly quickly. Thor will return soon though, in next year’s highly anticipated Marvel crossover film, ‘The Avengers’. Is there anyone you’d like to see direct the ‘Thor’ sequel? Let me know in the comments below!
Deadline is reporting that ABC and Disney that they have sold a show based off Marvel’s very popular character, The Punisher, to Fox for next season. The show will has been created by Ed Bernero, who was showrunner for a while on ‘Criminal Minds’, as well as it’s spin off. No one has yet been cast, but if the pilot is meant to land by next season, I expect we’ll hear something very soon. Hit the jump for more.
It’s finally official, Disney is moving forward with ‘The Lone Ranger’. It seems it took a week longer than expected, but Deadline reports that Disney, director Gore Verbinski, actor Johnny Depp, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have all reached an agreement behind the scenes and that the movie will now be moving forward. The movie is looking to shoot at the beginning of 2012, for a possible 2013 release. Depp is still in line to play Tonto, and Armie Hammer is set to play the Ranger, but there is no word if the actors previously cast in other supporting roles will be returning.
It looks like the public duel between Disney and director Gore Verbinski, actor Johnny Depp, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer has finally reached it’s end. After Disney pulled the plug on the trios project, a public battle over the budget heated up the news and the fate of the project looked bleak. Depp went public and said he wouldn’t do the project without Verbinksi, which put the project, and Disney, in a corner. But it looks like all parties have come to a mutual agreement, and Disney is looking to move forward with ‘Lone Ranger’!
