Berlin: Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams Teaming in Prohibition Era Drama

Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams have signed on to star in the Prohibition era drama “Ezekiel Moss” with Philip Seymour Hoffman directing.

Exclusive Media’s Alex Walton, president of international sales and distribution, will introduce the film to buyers at next week’s European Film Market in Berlin.

Producers are Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman, PalmStar Media Capital’s Kevin Frakes, Merced Media Partners’ Raj Brinder Singh and Cathy Schulman of Mandalay Vision.

Keith Bunin’s script  follows a widow who supports her spirited son by running a boarding house in a small town overrun by religious fervor. Her life is forever changed when she falls in love with Ezekiel Moss (Gyllenhaal), a mysterious drifter who can physically inhabit the spirits of the dead.

The script was featured on the 2011 Black List. Variety reported in 2012 that Hoffman would helm the film, his second directing gig after “Jack Goes Boating.”

Screen first reported the news about the casting.
