Hoffman, a two-time Academy Award winner, recently made his directorial debut with Quartet.

“I would develop stuff like every other actor,” Hoffman told “Good Morning America.” “The most important part of it is when you’re in your 30s and 40s and 50s, you think you’ve got all the time in the world. Suddenly, you’re 75 — you say, or get off the pot.”

Hoffman also recently wrapped up production on Jon Favreau's Chef in July and is set to begin filming Roald Dahl's Esio Trot in the fall.
