It’s now confirmed that Dustin Hoffman will be reprising his role of Bernie Focker for reshoots on the upcoming comedy “Little Fockers” reports Deadline.
Hoffman was originally set to appear but was written out of the sequel when a deal couldn’t be reached. Hoffman now has been convinced to return and they will pay him 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 22nd release date remains on target.
