Stage and screen star Philip Seymour Hoffman, most recently on Broadway in the revival of Death of a Salesman, will direct the new Keith Bunin film "Ezekiel Moss," Anthony Bregman of Likely Story and Cathy Schulman of Mandalay Pictures announced Sept. 18.
The film is a Likely Story and Mandalay Pictures production in association with Hoffman’s Cooper’s Town Productions.
"Ezekiel Moss," according to production notes, is described as 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."
Casting has just begun on the project.
Producer Bregman stated, "Philip Seymour Hoffman is an unsurpassed artist -- as an actor and director, on stage and in film. Year after year, he stuns us with his gift for finding the most interesting and precise expressions of a dramatic moment."
Producer Schulman added, “Philip Seymour Hoffman is one of the great talents of our generation. We are thrilled to be in his capable hands directing this captivating and gothic exploration of faith and the supernatural.”
