Meet The Fockers: According to sources at FilmJerk, despite having being recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, Robert De Niro is moving ahead withe production of the Meet The Parents sequel, Meet The Fockers.
Robert De Niro might have postponed the start of his next feature, "Hide and Seek," this week in order to treat his recently-discovered prostate cancer, but the sequel to 2000's "Meet the Parents" is currently moving towards a filming start date of mid-March in Los Angeles, according to FilmJerk.com sources.
According to the casting notes, only Ben Stiller and De Niro have signed on, with no word on Teri Polo or Blythe Danner's participation at this time. Additionally, the casting notes list the project's title as "Meet the Fockers," despite Variety announcing in June that the film's title had been changed slightly to "Meet the Fokkers," because of the last name's resemblance to a certain "f" word.
The Press-Enterprise of California wrote in a recent article that Vince Di Meglio and Tim Rasmussen have been hired to rewrite the film's original script. Jay Roach is set to resume his directorial duties from the first film.
