According to The Hollywood Reporter, two-time Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman is reuniting with director Marc Forster and joining the cast of Stranger Than Fiction.

The comedy's cast already includes Will Ferrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emma Thompson and Queen Latifah. "Fiction" tells the story of an IRS auditor (Ferrell) who inexplicably finds himself the subject of a narrator only he can hear, who tells him that events have been set in motion that will lead to his imminent death.

Hoffman will play a professor who helps the auditor in his attempts to find the narrator and to change his story before it's too late.
