Frank Ocean has started a new gig, and it has nothing to do with music.
The 30-year-old singer has signed up for his first appearance on the big screen. The film project, Ships Passing In The Night, will be directed by Michael Kang, whose previous work includes The Motel and West 32nd.
Ocean will be playing a character called Kevin and will be working alongside co-stars Hye-Kyo Song and Esther Nam, Billboard reports. Song is well-known in South Korea for films such as The Queens and Love and Let Love, though this will be Nam’s first role.
Few details are known about the film at this point, but it appears it will center around a troubled romance.
“Brad Bang is one of the top male supermodels in the world. Grace Sol is a passionate but fragile actress. Despite their growing, troubled relationship, after a series of rehearsals and one fateful night, Grace falls for Brad, only to realize that despite needing each other, their love is forbidden,” according to the synopsis published on IMDB.
There is no word on when the film, listed as in pre-production, will be released.
