The financial failure of John Carter resulted in a $200 million loss for Disney and will most likely be one of the ten major entertainment news stories to break this year. People got fired over John Carter, and many wondered what would happen to director Andrew Stanton, whose ego may have gotten in the way of his art.

Deadline broke the news that Stanton is in talk to rehabilitate over at Pixar by directing a sequel to Finding Nemo, with many whispering that this will be the only way for Stanton to get another shot at directing live action. Disney and Pixar have tried to leak some positive buzz into the mix, suggesting that Stanton himself came forward with an idea for the sequel, and this wasn’t a move made out of corporate greed and career concern.

Personally, I find it a bit fishy that a sequel to Finding Nemo will hit a few years after the film is rereleased in 3D to theaters and BluRay. This feels like a pretty good way to test the waters for interest in a sequel. If that release does well, expect the sequel to be fast tracked. If it doesn’t, Stanton may be in bigger trouble then even we could realize.

We’ll keep you updated as this story develops.
