He may be enjoying some warm reviews for his work in The Master, while filming scenes for the upcoming Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, but it looks like Phillip Seymour Hoffman is going to be busy for quite some time still, as he prepares a second directorial effort, based on an old-timey ghost tale, by the name of Ezekiel Moss.
Labelled as a “Depression-era ghost story, the film script was turned in back in 2011 by Keith Bunin, never to see the light of day, as producer Cathy Schulman at Mandalay Pictures calls the project a “captivating and gothic exploration of faith and the supernatural.”
Set in a small town during the era in which America had no cash to spare, the black list synopis tells a tale of a young, imaginative boy living in a small town who befriends a mysterious drifter who may have the ability to communicate with the dead.”
That’s a solid idea for a story, and has room to grow, and hopefully, with the Hoff involved, it’ll attract some talent as well to his second directing gig, considering how Jack goes boating wasn’t exactly a box office smash.
