‘Finding Dory’ adds Dominic West, Idris Elba for 2016 release

Two Wire alum have signed onto the next Pixar sequel, Finding Dory, as Idris Elba and Dominic West joined the cast for the 2016 film.

Finding Dory logo Pixar 2015 film“I saw Idris recently,” West told ShortList,”We’re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that. I’m in pretty regular contact with a lot of guys from The Wire – a lot of them are godparents to my kids, so I love them dearly.”

Finding Dory will pick up one year after Pixar’s hit 2003 animated film. It will focus on amnesiac fish Dory, and will explore the idea of her being reunited with her family. The film stars Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy, Vicki Lewis and Willem Dafoe.

This first time the pair have worked together since David Simon’s cult show, which, through five seasons, explored various forms of crime in the US city of Baltimore.

Willem Dafoe says the second film is better than the first:  “I’ve already started. It’s even better than the first. It’s fantastic. It’s good to say I think it’s going to be better than the first; that’s good advertising.”

Finding Dory was set for next fall, but was pushed back to June 17, 2016

Finding Nemo was a massive hit, earning almost $381 million in the US and just under $1 billion globally.
