• 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.
