Philip Seymour Hoffman is making his directorial debut in Jack Goes Boating, which (lapsing into synopsis speak for a moment) is: a tale of love, betrayal, and friendship set against the backdrop of working-class New York City life.

The film is being adapted from the 2007 play by writer Bob Glaudini, and many of the original cast, including Hoffman, are reprising their roles. There’s no word on a UK release just yet, but anything with Hoffman in it perks my interest.

This poster is from Collider, and very nice it looks too. Have a look why don’t you?
