Hoffman & Shyer Sign on for "Less"

by | November 2, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports that director Charles Shyer has been tapped to direct the Dustin Hoffman comedy "Father Knows Less" for New Line. And if you’re even a little familiar with Shyer’s work, you know he’s perfect for concepts like this one…

"Shyer, who last directed "Alfie" and who has explored domestic chaos in the "Father of the Bride" films, "Baby Boom" and "Irreconcilable Differences," will team with Larry Spencer to rewrite the original script by Aline Brosh McKenna and then John August.

Hoffman will play a record industry mogul who finds himself stuck with the day-to-day affairs of his family when his wife leaves him. For help, he turns to the kids from his first marriage, the ones he neglected when he was building his music career."
