Ellen DeGeneres in talks for Nemo 2

22 August 2012

Ellen DeGeneres looks set to reprise her role in the Finding Nemo sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog reports that the US talk show host has entered talks about voicing Dory in the follow-up to the Disney Pixar flick, which raked in more than 800 million dollars worldwide and set various box office records when it opened in 2003.

Ellen has often said she would be thrilled if film bosses decided to make a sequel to the first movie.

Earlier this year it was confirmed that a follow-up to the fishy tale was in the works, with original director Andrew Stanton on board.

Plot details are not known, but Deadline previously reported that the filmmaker "has a concept the studio loves".

The first movie follows a Clownfish called Marlin (Albert Brooks), who enlists the help of a forgetful Pacific Regal Blue Tang called Dory (Ellen) as they travel across the ocean searching for Marlin's missing son Nemo (Alexander Gould).

The Finding Nemo sequel is expected to be released in 2016.
