Meet The Fockers: According to The Associted Press, Barbra Streisand is reading the script for Meet the Fockers, the sequel to 2000's Meet The Parents, her husband, James Brolin, said in an interview on the syndicated "Access Hollywood" entertainment TV show.

"I know she is reading it," said Brolin, in an interview to air Monday. Excerpts were released in advance.

Streisand's participation as Ben Stiller's mother would mark a return to film for the 61-year-old singer-actress after an eight-year hiatus. She starred in 1996's The Mirror Has Two Faces.

Meet The Parents starred Stiller as Greg Focker, Teri Polo as Stiller's fiancee, and Robert De Niro (news) and Blythe Danner as Polo's parents. They are slated to return for the sequel.
