Philip Seymour Hoffman will direct a new supernatural thriller, it has been confirmed.

The Master star will take the director's chair on Ezekiel Moss for Mandalay Pictures.

Ezekiel Moss appeared on the 2011 film industry 'Black List' of acclaimed yet unproduced scripts, and tells the tale of a boy as he befriends a drifter who might hold the power to communicate with the dead.

Mandalay's Cathy Schulman hailed Hoffman as "one of the great talents of our generation" in a statement, adding: "We are thrilled to be in his capable hands directing this captivating and gothic exploration of faith and the supernatural."

Schulman will produce alongside her colleague Adam Stone, plus Likely Story's Anthony Bregman and Stefanie Azpiazu.

Emily Ziff will also produce on behalf of Hoffman's own company Cooper's Town Productions.

Hoffman has been cast in a key role in new Hunger Games movie Catching Fire, where he will play head gamesmaker Plutarch Heavensbee.
