With Jack Goes Boating underneath his directing belt, Philip Seymour Hoffman is once again stepping behind the camera, and this time the project will appeal to not only boating enthusiasts. THR reports Hoffman will direct Ezekial Moss, a supernatural drama that appeared on the 2011 Black List.

The story centers on a mysterious stranger who can speak to the dead. His arrival in a small town has a profound effect on the residents, particularly a widow and her young son. No word yet whether or not Hoffman will play the role of the mysterious ghost whisperer. If so, he's setting himself up for failure. Those are some mighty big shoes to fill.
