Big Beach Films and Philip Seymour Hoffman's Cooper's Town Prods. are teaming up for Jack Goes Boating, a quirky romantic drama about two stoners in love, with Hoffman eyeing the director's chair.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story is based on the off-Broadway play written by Bob Glaudini and produced by Hoffman's LAByrinth Theater Company, and centers on the titular character, a stoner limo driver who embarks on such quixotic missions as cooking and swimming lessons, and his unlikely relationship with another lovable loser.
Hoffman, who starred in the theatrical production, has never directed a film before, though he has directed a number of plays.
No production date has been set.
