Rumours suggest Peter Segal may be on the verge on agreeing to direct Little Fockers, the third film in the Meet the Parents series.

Empire magazine suggests the 46-year-old could be looking into directing the film as a replacement for Jay Roach.

It's claimed Segal will meet with the film's producers Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal later this week.

Segal recently directed Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway in Get Smart and has worked on a string of comedic films in the past including 50 First Dates, Anger Management and the Nutty Professor II.
