I’m not sure if these production photos are new, but I certainly haven’t seen them posted around the movie news web space. Universal Pictures has released two photos from Little Fockers, the third film in the Meet the Parents series.

Dustin Hoffman might not return for the third installment in the Meet the Parents franchise. Entertainment Weekly is reporting a rumor that “there has been strife between Hoffman and the studio over the size of the part, the scheduling of the days on set and other difficulties.” Hoffman has agreed to appear in the film, titled Little Fockers, as part of a funny cameo near the end of the movie, but it seems like that will no longer happen. Universal declined to comment.
Now for the really bad news… The fact that Bernie Focker won’t appear in the next sequel doesn’t mean that his wife Roz Focker (played by the ever annoying Barbra Streisand) won’t have a part. Streisand still has “a prominent role” in the movie, which is extremely disappointing, because many people say she was one of the worst parts of the sequel.
Casting News: Harvey Keitel Joins Those Little Fockers, Zachary Quinto Eying Romantic Dramedy Whirligig

In casting news tonight, we’ve learned that Harvey Keitel is joining those crazy Fockers. He’s signed on for Little Fockers, the sequel to Meet the Fockers, and the Focker-pun free title Meet the Parents. He’s joining returning cast members Ben Stiller, Robert DeNiro, Teri Polo, and Owen Wilson. Keitel will be playing the role of a contractor employed by Stiller’s character. The film will be directed by Paul Weitz (American Pie, About A Boy), who’s surely looking to move on after Cirque du Freak bombed.
I liked the first film well enough, but I’m really wondering how much longer this franchise is going to live on. Will we see the baby Fockers in question growing up while having to deal with their unfortunate last name? Perhaps a Future Fockers down the line? The possibilities are focking endless!
A casting notice has leaked out for Little Fockers, the next movie in the Meet the Parents/Fockers series. As expected, the third film will introduce Gaylord and Pam Fockers as parents, and now we have some details on the Focker offspring: Henry and Ashley are the five year old son and daughter twins of the characters played by Ben Stiller and Teri Polo in the film.

Little Fockers, the third film in the Meet The Parents trilogy is finally entering the casting stages — Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro and Owen Wilson are in talks with Universal to return. Meet the Parents and Meet The Fockers director Jay Roach will not helm the third film as he’s too busy prepping Dinner For Schmucks,which leaves an opening for a new director. Last month it was reported that the directing candidates were down to three names:
Paul Weitz (In Good Company, About a Boy)
David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models)
Peyton Reed (Bring it On, Yes Man).
Who does Universal want to hire for the threequel? As it turns out, None of the above.
Little Fockers, the third film in the Meet The Parents trilogy is finally entering the casting stages — Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro and Owen Wilson are in talks with Universal to return.
Meet the Parents and Meet The Fockers director Jay Roach will not helm the third film as he’s too busy prepping Dinner For Schmucks, but is expected to produce. According to THR, the new directing candidates include Paul Weitz (In Good Company, About a Boy) David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models); and Peyton Reed (Bring it On, Yes Man). Reed seems like the best choice out of the bunch for this type of material.
Fox News is reporting that Ben Stiller is back to developing a third film in the Meet The Parents series called Little Fockers.
“In the natural progression of things, Robert DeNiro and Blythe Danner would return as grandparents to Ben Stiller and Teri Polo’s babies. Of course, Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand would have to return as well.”
Meet the Parents was actually a pretty funny family comedy, but I found Fockers extremely painful to watch. The title is the funniest thing about the sequel. The addition of Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand just didn’t work, and I don’t think the introduction of a baby (or possible twins) will make a third film any better.
