Meet the Fockers: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barbra Streisand is in final negotiations to play Ben Stiller's mother in Universal Pictures' Meet the Fockers, the sequel to the 2000 comedy hit Meet the Parents:.
"Fockers" is being directed by Jay Roach and produced by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Roach. Stiller, De Niro, Blythe Danner and Teri Polo are returning in their original roles. Dustin Hoffman was cast as Stiller's father in January.
In the sequel, Greg Focker (Stiller) and his fiancee, Pam Byrnes (Polo), have won over Byrnes' parents, Jack (De Niro) and Dina (Danner). But when the tightly wound Byrnes family is introduced to Greg's parents, the hyper-relaxed Fockers, there's an immediate clash.
"Fockers" is written by Jim Herzfeld, Tim Rasmussen and Vince DiMeglio.
