'Little Fockers' Is A Go

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro have been confirmed they will return for the third 'Meet The...' film, entitled Meet The Little Fockers.

John Hamburg, who wrote the first two films, is currently working on the script, rewriting an earlier draft by Larry Stuckey.

The plot will revolve around the children of Gaylord "Greg" Focker and his wife Pam Byrnes (Teri Polo), and the couple's continuing attempts to please disapproving father-in-law Jack. Owen Wilson, who had cameos in the first two films as Pam's ex-lover Kevin Rawley, is expected to have a larger role in the new film.

Director Jay Roach will not return to helm the third film because he is attatched to 'Dinner For Schmucks'. Peyton Reed (Yes Man), David Wain (Role Models) and Paul Weitz (About A Boy) are all being considered to take the reigns.
