Little Fockers ReShoots May Include Dustin Hoffman
08.05.10 by Ryan
Earlier this week, Deadline reported that Little Fockers, the third movie in Universal's successful Meet the Parents franchise, was heading to shoot "a week of pick-ups" in an attempt to make the movie better. Director Paul Weitz took over Little Fockers for the departing Jay Roach, who stayed on as producer while he directed Dinner For Schmucks, which still finds Ben Stiller searching for acceptance from his strict father-in-law (Robert De Niro). The first trailer showed that most of the cast from Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers were returning, with the exception of Dustin Hoffman, who played Stiller's father. That could change.
New York Magazine reports that the "pick-ups" may be expanded into a full production as Hoffman is being courted to return for new scenes that would include Hoffman's character. Hoffman is currently shooting the HBO series Luck, which may complicate the actor's schedule.
Little Fockers is scheduled to open on December 22. Owen Wilson, Jessica Alba, Harvey Keitel, and Laura Dern also star.
