‘Little Fockers’ Cast Racked In Cash While Film Flopped!

“Little Fockers” may have attracted some stinking reviews — but the comedy scored a huge payday for its cast, with about $70 million going for salaries.

While the current US box office stands at about $105 million, the film will need to pack more theaters to cover A-list star salaries that sources say amounted to $20 million each for Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro, $15 million for Owen Wilson and $7 million for Barbra Streisand.

Even Dustin Hoffman, who plays Greg Focker’s father, Bernie, managed to negotiate a $7.5 million deal after Universal reshoots were needed at the last minute and he was begged to join. And Jessica Alba is thought to have been paid about $3 million.

source told Page Six, “The studio needed a hit, so the stars were able to hold them to ransom and command huge money. On top of this, De Niro takes extra cash because his company, Tribeca Productions, produced the movie.”

Another source told us, “Universal decided on a reshoot at the last minute, and Hoffman’s character was needed for some new scenes. They couldn’t originally agree on terms with Hoffman, so for the reshoot he could basically name his price — which was $7.5 million for five days’ work.”
