LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Dustin Hoffman will re-team with "Finding Neverland" director Marc Forster for the comedy "Stranger Than Fiction," The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.

Hoffman will join a cast that includes Will Ferrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emma Thompson and Queen Latifah. "Stranger than Fiction" is the story of an Internal Revenue Service auditor (Ferrell) who starts hearing a narrator -- one no one else can hear -- who tells him about events in his life that will lead to his death.

Hoffman will play a professor who helps the IRS man try to find the narrator and change the story while he still can.
