‘Finding Nemo’ Scribe Slated For Sony Pictures Animation Flick

Finding NemoSony Pictures Animation just figured out a way to get out of the whole paying your dues until you make it ordeal. Since its creation in 2009, the studio has only produced a few films, bringing us culinary weather in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and soon (hopefully) making us chuckle with 2011’s The Smurfs. Now they’re gearing up to quickly jump up to the animation big leagues. David Reynolds, the man who penned big hits for Pixar with Finding Nemo, has been snatched up by the budding animation studio for their upcoming, yet still untitled project. Reynolds got an Oscar nod for Nemo and is also responsible for the Disney/Pixar classic A Bug’s Life . Wow, I just named two of my all-time favorite Disney movies. Sony Pictures Animation may be new to the game, but they ain’t no dummies.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
