Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams have joined the long-gestating prohibition era drama Ezekiel Moss for second time director Philip Seymour Hoffman, who made his debut with the critically acclaimed Jack Goes Boating in 2010.
The black list script comes from Keith Bunin (the upcoming Horns, the TV series In Treatment), with Amy Adams starring as Iris, an emotionally distraught woman living in the wake of her husband's death. She runs a small town boarding school where religion rules and sin is forbidden. She begins an affair with a mysterious stranger (Jake Gyllenhaal ) who wanders into town, only to discover that he has the ability to channel and physically inhabit the dead.
The film is being produced by Likely Story's Anthony Bregman, PalmStar Media Capital's Kevin Scott Frakes, Merced Media Partners' Raj Brinder Singh and Cathy Schulman of Mandalay Vision.
