Barbra Streisand Takes On Mrs Focker Role

The OSCAR-winning FUNNY GIRL star, 61, heading back to movie screens for the first time in eight years for MEET THE FOCKERS, is currently tying up film contracts with bosses.

The movie is set to go into production on 5 April (04), with JAY ROACH returning as director. The film is slated for release on 22 December (04).
