Dustin Hoffman in Talks to Save "Meet the Parents 3"

Posted: August 4th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Dustin Hoffman in Talks to Save "Meet the Parents 3"Submit Comment
Back in November, we learned that Dustin Hoffman agreed to appear in a funny cameo at the end of "Meet the Parents: Little Fockers," but eventually had to drop out due to either salary issues or scheduling problems. Universal Pictures moved forward without Hoffman, but still with Barbra Streisand.

Then the project started running into problems. Deadline reported that the studio set up a week-worth of pick-ups and re-shoots in order to cover gaps in timing and aid transitions that were unforeseen when shooting. But why would you need the entire cast for this?

Now, NY Magazine is reporting that Universal is planning a bit more than to just fix-up little issues in the movie. It turns out that the studio is in negotiations with Hoffman to reprise his role as the father of Greg (Ben Stiller). This obviously means major re-writes, an increase in budget and inevitable delays. But the hope is to bring on Hoffman to save the movie, which is apparently not testing very well.

@ActionFigure

We've already had that disaster once.

It was caused by British Petroleum.

This thing needs to be buried where they take nuclear waste.

@max- cheers mate...I knw what I said aint much but sometimes it is the simple ones that are more effective.

This movie must be really bad if they are willing to go over bugdet like this to save it.

I like Meet the Parents and although not as good as the first I did thoroughly enjoy Meet the Fockers. However at this point you just have to ask, when does it f*cking end? How many times can Robert DeNiro's character think there's something suspicious about Ben Stiller's?

It's like they hit a reset button, just because this one has kids and its 5 years later or w/e doesn't mean that it'll be different. No, it's going to:

Circle of trust
Jack being suspicious of Greg because he's hiding something
Jokes that play on the names Gaylord and Focker
Ben Stiller destroying something in a bumbling way
Ben Stiller talking to the camera at the end

There, I just did the job of the screenwriter in 2 and a half minutes.

Never saw the appeal of the first movie, didn't watch the second and I sure as sh*t aint gonna watch the third.

Maybe the audience is finally catching on that this isn't a funny franchise?

If the camera man was shooting, and Jesus happened to make the second coming in the background, and it was caught on tape!-..... It till wouldn't save this movie.

Not suprised the trailer they released was terrible.

Stay away if i were you Dustin.

Maybe get the other dustin in there and have De Niro torture him ... (just a thought)

"But the hope is to bring on Hoffman to save the movie, which is apparently not testing very well." This is a clue that the film sucks and they need to end it now.
