Variety reports that Pete Segal (The Longest Yard, 50 First Dates) has emerged as the frontrunner to direct Little Fockers, the third installment in the Universal Pictures/Tribeca Productions franchise.

Segal was expecting to return as the director of Get Smart 2 this year but became available when Steve Carell instead made a deal to team with Tina Fey in the Shawn Levy-directed comedy Date Night for Fox.

John Hamburg wrote the third installment. It is the first in the series (Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers) not to be directed by Jay Roach.

Universal will get the film into production later this year.
