Because Philip Seymour Hoffman can do anything he wants, it’s no surprise that he is now taking on the horror project EZEKIEL MOSS for Mandalay Pictures.
The script is written by Keith Bunin (who’s penning the upcoming HORNS screenplay and worked on IN TREATMENT) and is set in the Great Depression. The film follows “a young boy living in a small town. He becomes friends with a drifter who appears to be able to communicate with the dead.” It doesn’t sound like anything special, but Hoffman is such a fantastic talent and I’m excited to see him take a foray into horror, as I’m sure many of you are as well.
Hoffman has previously directed once before, with JACK GOES BOATING. He can currently be seen in Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER, and in the upcoming HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE.
