Fresh off high praise and a record-breaking weekend for The Master, Philip Seymour Hoffman is eyeing a move behind the camera, as the multihyphenate is on board to helm the Depression Era ghost story Ezekiel Moss for Mandalay Pictures, reports Variety.
The 2011 Black List script by Keith Bunin follows a young, imaginative boy living in a small town who befriends a mysterious drifter who may have the ability to communicate with the dead.
Anthony Bregman of Likely Story and Cathy Schulman of Mandalay Pictures will produce along with Stefanie Azpiazu of Likely Story, Adam Stone of Mandalay Pictures and Emily Ziff of Hoffman’s Cooper’s Town Productions.
Schulman calls it a “captivating and gothic exploration of faith and the supernatural.”
Hoffman is currently filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
