It looks like Frank Ocean — as always — had a secret project in the works at some point. That is, according to Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino. Guadagnino told New York Times journalist Kyle Buchanan the news in a recent interview in the hopes of getting the project back in progress.
"We were collaborating on a music video that never happened," Guadagnino said according to a tweet from Buchanan. The pair had been discussing the director's upcoming HBO show We Are Who We Are. "I use the Times to launch an appeal to Frank: Frank, let's do that video. Come on."
And while we understand the urge, maybe let's not right now?
Ocean's family currently suffered the loss of the star's 18-year-old brother in a fiery car crash. His mother posted a photo of the two of them with the breaking heart emoji only days ago. While the family hasn't released an official public statement, Ocean was also close with his brother. So while, yes we would also be excited to work with the musician, maybe trying to use the New York Times to apply public pressure when he's likely still grieving his teenaged brother isn't the way? IDK just saying.
Guadagnino is also pretty busy at the moment anyway. In addition to We Are Who We Are, he is doing a Scotty Bowers biopic and has a documentary on Salvatore Ferragamo.
