Frank Ocean may be plotting to breakthrough into Hollywood by directing his first feature film.

According to a report Discussing Film published on Wednesday, June 1, the Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter wants to direct his first full-length movie. There are no confirmed details about the film at the moment, but the outlet’s sources claim that the film has a working title, Philly. While everything is currently tentative, it’s possible that Ocean could begin production on the film in the fall and wrap up by New Year’s if his schedule permits. The Blonde singer is also reportedly plotting his return to music ahead of his scheduled headlining performance at Coachella in 2023.

The discussions surrounding the film are still in the infant stage since Ocean is reportedly considering his busy schedule. The outlet also said that A24 and 2 AM are interested in distributing the movie. While A24 has been having a stellar run lately, 2 AM is a fairly new production company that has been involved in two films from A24’s catalog including Bodies, Bodies, Bodies starring Pete Davidson and Past Lives, which have not been released yet. If the film does move forward, Ocean is reportedly considering New Mexico as a potential filming location.

Ocean already has ample filmmaking experience under his belt. Back in 2016, he wrote the foreword for the screenplay book release of Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight. He also wrote and directed his 2016 visual album Endless, which is a 46-minute presentation of Ocean building a staircase that featured new music at the time of its release.

As of press time, Frank Ocean and his team have not confirmed the report.
