Variety reports director of American Pie and About A Boy, Paul Weitz is in talks to direct the 3rd installment of the Meet The Parents series, Little Fockers. Production will begin in July with Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Teri Polo and Blythe Danner all set to return. John Hamburg (I Love You, Man) is rewriting a script based of Larry Stuckey’s original version. Jay Roach and Jane Rosenthal are returning as producers.
I loved Meet the Parents, it’s one of my favorite comedies of all time. The sequel was lacking, but still funny. I’m excited to see what Weitz can do behind the camera since I enjoyed his style in About a Boy.
What do you think of Weitz as a director? Do you want another Focker?
