Keitel visits Fockers

MEAN STREETS and TAXI DRIVER stars Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro will reteam for the upcoming Universal comedy MEET THE FOCKERS. And just a few days after Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence announced they'd be reteaming their Wanda and Sheneneh characters for a movie?! Will the superstar reteamings ever stop?! Keitel has signed on to play a contractor hired by Stiller's Greg Focker so it's unclear how much, if any, interaction Keitel will actually have with De Niro in the film.

Keitel joins Jessica Alba and Laura Dern as newcomers in the franchise. Alba is playing a sexy pharmaceutical rep while Dern plays the teacher of the young Focker kids. Teri Polo, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson are all set to return with Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand, last seen as the Focker parents, will be sitting this installment out. Paul Weitz is directing FOCKERS, stepping in to replace Jay Roach who will instead take a producing credit. Filming on FOCKERS is scheduled to begin later this year.

Extra Tidbit: Keitel and De Niro also starred in COP LAND but I can't for the life of me remember if they actually share screen time.
