"Little Fockers" Brings Back Dustin Hoffman

Movie News

After sitting out of the next installment of "Meet the Parents," it looks as if Dustin Hoffman's character of Bernie Focker will be back. Hoffman was originally set to appear but was written out of the sequel when a deal couldn't be reached.

According to Deadline, Hoffman will return for reshoots on the film and will get paid what he would have originally earned to appear in the entire film.

Hoffman is expected to shoot a few scenes with Barbra Streisand, as well as a large scene towards the end of the film including all of the main characters. Scenes between Ben Stiller and his on-screen children are also being redone.

Paul Weitz is directing the film while Jay Roach and John Hamburg are producing.

Reshoots on the project kick off next month, but the film's December 22, 2010 release date remains on target. Reshoots can usually mean trouble for a production, but since it's to add another character that was decently funny in the last film, it's not much to fret over.

Although its been quite a while since the last film came out, "Little Fockers" should be a huge box office draw come winter.
