Philip Seymour Hoffman Stepping Back into the Directors Chair with, ‘Ezekial Moss’

Philip Seymour Hoffman will direct Ezekiel Moss, a depression era ghost story about a young, imaginative boy living in a small dead end town who befriends a mysterious drifter who may or may not have the supernatural ability to communicate with the dead.

The script, written by Keith Bunin, was voted one of the top ten scripts of 2011 by the Black List.

The film marks Hoffman’s second time behind the camera for a feature film, the first being Jack Goes Boating.  Currently filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Hoffman co-stars in this fall’s The Master and A Late Quartet.
