Finding Dory to star Idris Elba and Dominic West

Former stars of hit TV show The Wire are set to reunite for the sequel to Pixar's 2003 massive hit Finding Nemo.

It's been revealed both Idris Elba and Dominic West have been lined up to star in Finding Dory after Dominic let the news slip during an interview with Britain's shortlist magazine. Speaking to the magazine the star said; "I saw Idris recently. 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."

The Pixar animation is slated for release summer 2016 and will also feature US comedienne Ellen DeGeneres as Dory alongside Willem Dafoe and Albert Brooks.

The film is set one year on from the initial film and follows Dory on her quest to be reunited with her family one off the cost of California.
