Universal has unveiled new banners for the Paul Weisz-directed threequel Little Fockers, starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro. While the comedy has undergone some production woes, most notably a last-minute effort to inject Dustin Hoffman into the film, Fockers looks to be on track to meet its December 26th release date in Australia. Whether that’s good news or bad news depends on how much you’re looking forward to spending more time with Greg and the Focker clan.
Both Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers were directed by Jay Roach, who left the series to helm this year’s Dinner for Schmucks with Paul Rudd and Steve Carell. Paul Weisz (American Pie) eventually took directed and will attempt to inject some fresh blood into a franchise that already felt dated in its second outing.
Here’s the official synopsis for Little Fockers:
The test of wills between Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) and Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) escalates to new heights of comedy in the third installment of the blockbuster series-Little Fockers. Laura Dern, Jessica Alba and Harvey Keitel join the returning all-star cast for a new chapter of the worldwide hit franchise. It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get “in” with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack’s suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam’s entire clan-including Pam’s lovelorn ex, Kevin (Owen Wilson)-descends for the twins’ birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he’s fully capable as the man of the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack’s final test and become the family’s next patriarch… or will the circle of trust be broken for good?
