Rumours are swimming around that Pixar is to make a sequel of its 2003 hit Finding Nemo.

Ellen DeGeneres who won hearts as the voice of Nemo's dippy side-kick Dory is reportedly in talks to star in the follow-up.

The Hollywood Reporter said the talk show host was "in negotiations" with studios. DeGeneres herself has previously publicly expressed her wish to reprise the role.

Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton was reported to have returned to Pixar last month to work on Finding Nemo 2, estimated to hit cinemas in 2016.

A 3D version of the underwater children's classic comes out next month.

The Disney-owned computer animation studio Pixar's most recent cinematic release is Brave.

It has previously made sequels and prequels for its other worldwide successes, including Toy Story and Monsters Inc.
