Dustin Hoffman 'Surgically Cured' After Diagnosed With Cancer


Dustin Hoffman


The 'Quartet' director will undergo doctor-recommended preventative treatments to minimize the chance of cancer recurrence.

It's just revealed that Dustin Hoffman was diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer. But not to worry, the disease was detected at an early stage and the Hollywood movie veteran, 75, has undergone a successful treatment.

His representative Jodi Gottlieb says the actor is now on the road to recovery. "It was detected early and he has been surgically cured," the rep says in a statement to PEOPLE. "Dustin is feeling great and is in good health."

Hoffman who voiced Master Shifu in "Kung Fu Panda" animated movie series will undergo preventative treatments to minimize his risk of recurrence. No other details including what type of cancer he had are available.

Despite his battle against cancer, Hoffman shows no signs of slowing down. After making his directorial debut with last year's "Quartet" and finishing production on Jon Favreau's "Chef (2014)" in mid-July this year, he is scheduled to film Roald Dahl's "Esio Trot" opposite Judi Dench this fall and to start shooting "Boys Choir" either later this year or early 2014.
