Guadagnino To Helm HBO’s “Who We Are”

Guadagnino Moore Plan Valentino Short

“Call Me By Your Name” and “Suspiria” filmmaker Luca Guadagnino has begun preparation of his next project – a new eight-episode limited series for HBO entitled “We Are Who We Are”.

The period coming of age story follows the young Fraser, a teenager from New York who finds himself on a military base in Italy. While there, he meets other kids on the base, including Caitlin, with whom he begins a romantic relationship with.

However, things get more complicated as his sexual identity isn’t as clear cut as he might think and he also develops feelings for an older soldier named Jason.

Guadagnino, Paolo Giordano and Francesca Manieri penned the series which begins shooting in May – likely ahead of an early 2020 airing.
