Last year, a new TV series written and directed by Luca Guadagnino was announced, titled We Are Who We Are and starring none other than Chloë Sevigny and Kid Cudi. Now, we’ve received a first look at the Suspiria director’s eight-part series, which will premiere on HBO and HBO Max this September.
The short teaser pans across across a beach to show two teenagers (played by Jack Dylan Grazer and Jordan Kristine Seamon, respectively) living on a US military base in Italy. In the series, Guadagnino will return to the picturesque Italian landscape he’s previously explored in Call Me By Your Nameand A Bigger Splash.
Besides Chloë Sevigny or Kid Cudi (neither of whom appear in the teaser) We Are Who We Are will star Tom Mercier, Ben Taylor, Alice Braga, Francesca Scorsese, and more. The show’s announcement in July 2019 was made entirely with a series of cast pics posted to Instagram.
Throughout 2020, a flurry of announcements about other forthcoming Guadagnino projects have provided some much-needed relief from current events. In April Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer were confirmed for a CMBYN sequel, and later in the month it was reported that the director had found a writer for his Lord of the Flies adaptation.
In May, meanwhile, it was announced that Guadagnino would direct a Scarface remake written by the Coen brothers.
In the meantime, watch the new We Are Who We Are teaser, and view more images from the show, below.
