Casting Net: Albert Brooks joins 'Finding Nemo 2'; Plus Nicolas Cage and Dan Stevens

• Albert Brooks is set to reprise his role as the cranky but loving father Marlin in Finding Nemo 2. Even though Andrew Stanton had already signed on to direct and Ellen DeGeneres had agreed to return, Brooks was reportedly a hold out for the sequel. Still, we’re excited that he’s officially joined the cast. It wouldn’t be the same without his voice. Now Brooks just needs to write and direct another film of his own. [Deadline]

• Nicolas Cage will star in Paco Cabezas’ (Neon Flesh) thriller Tokarev. The film will tell the story of former crook Paul Maguire (Cage) who must revert to his old ways when he discovers that the Russian mob has kidnapped his daughter. Cage can be seen next in the animated DreamWorks film The Croods, a prehistoric road trip comedy where he voices Emma Stone’s caveman father.  [Deadline]

Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens is currently in talks to join Liam Neeson in the noir crime thriller A Walk Among the Tombstones. Between this and the WikiLeaks film The Fifth Estate with Benedict Cumberbatch, Stevens seems eager to leave the period pieces behind, though we’ll certainly miss Cousin Matthew.

Box office report: 'Resident Evil' outswims 'Nemo' with $21.1 million; 'The Master' off to record-breaking start

It was a great weekend to be a director named Paul Anderson.

Not only did Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution become his fourth straight Resident Evil film to debut atop the chart; Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama The Master had one of the best opening weekends of all time in limited release.

In first place, Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth entry in the stalwart horror/action franchise, earned $21.1 million — 21 percent less than 2010’s Resident Evil: Afterlife, which began with $26.7 million. This is the first time that a Resident Evil movie has earned less than its predecessor. The original Resident Evil earned $17.7 million in 2002. Resident Evil: Apocalypse grossed $23.0 million in 2004. Resident Evil: Extinction scored $23.7 million in 2007. Notably, Retribution, which is being distributed in 3-D and IMAX, also sold the fewest tickets of any of the Resident Evil films in its opening weekend.

Sony, who is distributing the $65 million Milla Jovovich (Paul W.S. Anderson’s wife) vehicle under its Screen Gems division, isn’t worried, though. The Resident Evil franchise’s international prospects have grown substantially over the last decade, and with a $50 million international start this weekend, Retribution has a good shot at finishing ahead of Afterlife‘s $296 million worldwide cume. Audiences issued the film a “C+” CinemaScore grade. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Resident Evil: Retribution' wins Friday with $8.4 million; 'The Master' huge in limited release

After a successful opening Friday, horror/action sequel Resident Evil: Retribution is headed for an easy weekend win — the fourth straight number one opening for a Resident Evil film.

Sony’s $65 million Retribution grossed $8.4 million on Friday, 22 percent less than the $10.7 million opening Friday of 2010’s Resident Evil: Afterlife, which ultimately found $26.7 million over its first three days. Retribution‘s gross puts it on pace for a $22 million weekend, which would be smaller than both 2006’s Resident Evil: Extinction ($23.7 million) and 2004’s Resident Evil: Apocalypse ($23.0 million), but ahead of franchise launchpad Resident Evil, which started with $17.7 million in 2002.

Box office preview: 'Finding Nemo' and 'Resident Evil' hope to boost an ailing market

After last weekend’s depressing box office frame, things are looking utterly swimming this time around, thanks to the 3-D re-release of Finding Nemo, which will likely top the chart.

Also opening this weekend is the fifth(!) Resident Evil film, which is headed for solid results, and faith-based title Last Ounce of Courage, which is being distributed by the same studio that pushed 2016: Obama’s America to financial success.

Here’s how the weekend box office might shake out: READ FULL STORY

'Finding Nemo 2' in the works with director Andrew Stanton -- REPORT

After the surface of Mars proved inhospitable, Deadline is reporting that John Carter director Andrew Stanton is returning to the lush and lively oceans on our own planet for a sequel to his 2003 animated blockbuster Finding Nemo. The project remains in development at Pixar Animation Studios, which has been Stanton’s primary filmmaking home for two decades.

Finding Nemo, meanwhile, will be re-released in 3-D on Sept. 14. To date, it’s earned $867 million in worldwide box office; adjusted for inflation, it still ranks as Pixar’s highest grossing film in the U.S.

Reps for Pixar and Disney declined to comment when reached by EW.
