    2009 Best Supporting Actor Nominee Philip Seymour Hoffman will make his directorial debut with Jack Goes Boating. The film will be based on an off-Broadway play and Hoffman will direct and star in the adaptation for Overture Films. Last year's Best Supporting Actress nominee Amy Ryan will star opposite of Hoffman. Two of the stage players, John Ortiz and Daphne Rubin-Vega, will reprise their roles in the film.

    The story is an unconventional romantic comedy set in New York which features happenings that occur during cooking classes, while swimming, and while taking drugs. Shooting begins in New York City next month. Overture has a production deal with Hoffman's Cooper's Town banner.
