Chloë Sevigny and Kid Cudi to star in Luca Guadagnino’s new TV show

We Are Who We Are is an Italian coming-of-age story from the Call Me By Your Name director

CMBYN stans, we have your next fix. It’s just been announced that Chloë Sevigny and Kid Cudi have been recruited for Luca Guadagnino’s HBO series We Are Who We Are, billed as a coming-of-age show set in Italy. 

According to international distributor Fremantle, the eight-episode series will centre on the story of two American teenagers, who live on an American military base in Italy. Guadagnino will once again utilise Italy’s picturesque landscape (having already done so for Call Me By Your Name and A Bigger Splash) to tell the tale of “friendship, first-love and all the unknowns of being a teenager”.  

The show, due to start filming in a couple of weeks, will be Sevigny’s second series with HBO – the first one being her Golden Globe-winning role in Big Love. It will also star Jack Dylan Grazer, Tom Mercier, and Alice Braga. The Suspiria director will write, direct, and showrun the series. As per Guadagnino’s leftfield style, the show announcement was made with a series of Instagram cast pics.

Sevigny was most recently seen in Jim Jarmusch’s bloody grindhouse comedy The Dead Don’t Die – alongside Adam Driver and Bill Murray, she plays a part in a trio of bungling cops who team up the residents of a small town to fight some zombies. Elsewhere, Sevigny has recently starred in lesbian murder mystery Lizzie with Kristen Stewart, Lean on Pete, and Beatriz at Dinner. She will also play a role in Lena Waithe’s drama Queen & Slim with Get Out lead Daniel Kaluuya, due out in 2020. Kid Cudi, aside from his celebrated musical career, has held roles in TV series like Westworld and How to Make It in America. He will also have a significant role in the recently announced Bill & Ted Face the Music, which stars Keanu Reeves.

If you need some banging TV to tide you over, HBO has pulled it out of the bag with Zendaya-starring Euphoriaa wild ride through drug addiction, teenhood, and sex. We Are Who We Are begins shooting in Italy later this month, with no release date announced just yet.
