Well, it may have taken a lot of negotiation but Marlin the not-so-funny clownfish is coming back to find Nemo! Yup, Albert Brooks, the man who voiced Nemo's daddy in the 2003 smash hit, has finally signed on to star in Disney's upcoming sequel.

The movie itself is a long time coming too, what with original director Andrew Stanton being signed up to helm it last July. Now Deadline is reporting that Brooks will definitely be joining Stanton and Ellen DeGeneres, who makes her big screen return as Dory. As for Nemo? Well, we hate to break it to you but Andrew Gould is 18 now, so we're guessing there'll be a new young fella drafted in.

The sequel will be a bit of a change for Brooks: Most recently we've spotted him in Drive with Ryan Gosling and he hits cinemas tomorrow in Judd Apatow's This Is 40, but I guess when it comes to high profile roles like this one, we suppose the only thing to do is just keep swimming.

Finding Nemo 2 is rumoured to splash into cinemas some time around 2016. In the mean time you can catch Finding Nemo in 3D later this year!
