Philip Seymour Hoffman Given 'Ezekial Moss'

A recent article by Variety named Philip Seymour Hoffman as the new director for the upcoming ghost story Ezekiel Moss.

The story surrounding Ezekiel Moss is still somewhat of a mystery, other than the fact that it was on 2011’s Black List, which lists the most popular unproduced scripts in Hollywood. Keith Bunin is the celebrated screenwriter who already has already garnered considerable buzz for his screenplay Horns, an adaptation of the Joe Hill novel of the same name.

We also know that the story will somehow revolve around a young imaginative boy liviing in a Depression Era small town. He befriends a drifter who possibly has the ability to communicate with the dead.

To say 2012 has been a good year for Philip Seymour Hoffman would be quite the understatement. With last weekend’s box office hit The Master drawing in an estimated $145,949 per screen, coupled with the actor’s project A Late Quartet due out later in the fall, it’ll be hard to contend with the demand for Hoffman come 2013. He’s already booked for two projects, including The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

That being said, this will only be Philip Seymour Hoffman’s second feature film. His first, Jack Goes Boating, managed to stay under the radar and failed to wow critics. It’ll be interesting to see how much governance Hoffman is given after his major and minor successes in the upcoming year.
