Actor and chameleon Philip Seymour Hoffman will be going back behind the camera for his latest, the supernatural drama “Ezekiel Moss”. This will be Hoffman’s second film as director, his feature film debut being 2010′s drama “Jack Goes Boating”, but I doubt if any of you actually saw that one (or even know it existed, to be perfectly honest with you).
Written by Keith Bunin, “Ezekiel Moss” will follow “a mysterious stranger with the power to speak with the dead. His arrival to a small Nebraska town transforms the lives of the town’s residents, including a widow and her young son.”
This being a film from a notable actor, you probably shouldn’t expect a straightforward “guy speaks to the dead, bad stuff happens” type of horror movie. If it’s a horror movie at all. The emphasis here might be the drama part in the supernatural drama description.
Hoffman, meanwhile, is coming off Paul Thomas Anderson’s critical hit “The Master”, and he’s already committed to installments of the “Hunger Games” franchise, where he’ll be playing the awesomely named Plutarch Heavensbee.
Mandalay Pictures and Likely Story will produce.
