Ahead of the film being sold at the Berlin Film Festival, it’s been revealed that Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams are set to team up for Ezekiel Moss, according to TheWrap. The movie will be Philip Seymour Hoffman’s second directorial debut, following 2010’s Jack Goes Boating.
The movie is a supernatural thriller, which is described as a ‘Depression-era ghost story’. It’s based on a script by Keith Bunin, which landed on the Black List back in 2011. The film is about ‘a young, imaginative boy living in a small town who befriends a mysterious drifter who may have the ability to communicate with the dead’.
Gyllenhaal is set to be the mysterious drifter, with Adams as the boys’ mother.
It’s not clear when it might shoot.
