Philip Seymour Hoffman, who managed to scrounge himself a best acting Oscar for playing Truman Capote, is now looking to fulfill every actor’s dream — he just wants to direct.

Hoffman is working on an acclaimed off-Broadway play called “Jack Goes Boating” as his first filmic effort. The play focuses on a stoner limo driver and his exploits.

Hoffman starred in the theatrical version and may direct himself in the film, which will be produced by Hoffman’s Cooper Town Productions and Big Beach Films.
