Philip Seymour Hoffman is set to take direct Mandalay Pictures' Ezekiel Moss, a ghost story set scripted by Keith Brunin, set in the Depression Era for Mandalay Pictures.
Variety reports that the script which made the 2011 Black List, tells of a young boy with a strong imagination who lives in a small town and makes friends with a drifter gifted with the ability to communicate with the dead.
Cathy Schulman and Adam Stone of Mandalay Pictures produce with Likely Story's Anthony Bregman and Stefanie Azpiazu as well as Emily Ziff of Hoffman's Cooper's Town Productions.
Schulman stated that 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."
This is the second film Hoffman will take the wheel for after Overture Films' Jack Goes Boating.
