No need to curse -- there will be a third installment of Meet the Parents.

The franchise's offspring, Little Fockers, will be moving forward albeit with a slightly differently composed family.

Jay Roach, who directed Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers, will not helm Little Fockers.

He's busy preparing the American redo of French hit Dinner for Schmucks.

Producers instead are out to a handful of top comedy directors with candidates said to include Paul Weitz, David Wain and Peyton Reed.

John Hamburg has been brought on to write the screenplay afterLarry Stuckey penned an earlier draft, reports the Risky Business blog.

Hamburg did drafts on Parents and Fockers and worked with star Ben Stiller on Along Came Polly.

Sources told Risky Business that Universal and Tribeca Productions are moving forward quickly on the project, with an eye toward shooting as early as summer or fall.

Stiller, Robert De Niro and Owen Wilson are in negotiations to star while Barbra Streisand, who played Stiller's mother in the second film, recently told the AP she may return for the third.

Little Fockers is expected to revolve around the children of Stiller and Teri Polo, who plays his wife.
