Philip Seymour Hoffman is having a heck of a year. He co-stars in ‘The Master,’ which just set box office records this weekend, and it’s likely he will nominated for an Oscar for his work. He’s also signed up for a plum role in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,’ and now he’s looking to direct ‘Ezekiel Moss.’

This news comes from Variety, and they tell us the Depression-era film is from a 2011 Black List script by Keith Bunin and “follows a young, imaginative boy living in a small town who befriends a mysterious drifter who may have the ability to communicate with the dead.”

This isn’t Hoffman’s first time behind the camera: he directed 2010′s ‘Jack Goes Boating,’ which he also starred in, and it’s a film that didn’t make much of an impression. But Hoffman, who worked his way through the Hollywood system with supporting roles in films like ‘Scent of a Woman’ and ‘Twister,’ has become one of the most respected actors in cinema and has worked with many of the greatest working directors (including Paul Thomas Anderson, Spike Lee and the Coen Brothers), so he definitely knows good material.  This looks to be stranger and more interesting than his last film, so we’ll be following the development of this film closely.
