Jay Roach not directing ‘Little Fockers’
Universal is trying to a secure a director for
Little Fockers, the second sequel in the
Meet the Parents franchise, The Hollywood Reporter said.
Producers are talking to several comedy directors about heading up the movie -- which is expected to again star Ben Stiller, Teri Polo and Robert De Niro -- because
Meet the Parents and
Meet the Fockers director Jay Roach is working on another project. Roach will, however, produce
Little Fockers, which is said to concentrate on Stiller's and Polo's characters and their children.
The Hollywood Reporter said
I Love You, Man writer-director John Hamburg is penning the screenplay for
Fockers, which is tentatively slated to go before the cameras this summer or fall.
