Selena Gomez has picked up more than one nasty habit since she began dating Justin Bieber. She’s turned into more than a casual cigarette smoker, alarming some of her friends, who fear she’s becoming a chain-smoker like Lindsay Lohan. Her role called for her to smoke in the 2013 bikini romp “Spring Breakers.” She played a bad-ass college kid along with Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and Rachel Korine. ...Read More »
James Franco is so mad about a proposed sequel to his coming-of-age flick “Spring Breakers,” he’s florid about it. He denounced the movie’s raison d’être (ooo la la, French) and called it a “poison ship.” It seems a little pretentious to think the 2012 movie, written and directed by Harmony Korine, is worthy of a raison d’être. It was basically beach party bingo on steroids. Co-stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine spendt most of their time in tiny bikinis. ...Read More »
Yes, it’s true, I couldn’t believe it either but it looks like Spring Breakers will be getting a sequel. A poster has been spotted in Cannes (by Collider) for the follow-up to the The Harmony Korine movie starred which starred Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine in roles like you’ve never seen them before!
The only issue here is that the sequel to the movie (known on the poster as Spring Breakers: The Second Coming Written by Irvine Welsh) has not be endorsed by either Korine or Franco and both have lashed our at the Producers basically calling them money-grabbing.

About a week ago, it was reported that Wild Bunch production company is working on a sequel to "Spring Breakers," a 2013 film that starred James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine.

One of the strangest films of last year has to be "Spring Breakers," starring James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine. The movie wasn't big on plot. Instead, it was filled with wacky dialogue and music video-style elements. "Spring Breakers" went on to gross $31.7 million worldwide on a budget of $5 million. Even though it's not considered a massive hit, Wild Bunch production company has now announced that it's developing a sequel. Director/writer Harmony Korine is not returning. He'll be replaced by helmer Jonas Akerlund (Spun, Horsemen, Beyonce's "Telephone" music video), who'll direct from a script by Irvine Welsh, the author of "Trainspotting." The plot has also been revealed. Instead of fighting drug dealers, the characters will go to war with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them. Some of the cast will reprise their roles, but it sounds like the main cast will not return. »

Titled Spring Breakers: The Second Coming, the film isn't without a bit of prestige. This sequel is being written by Irvine Welsh, the Scottish writer behind Trainspotting and the upcoming crime comedy Filth starring James McAvoy. It will be directed by cult auteur Jonas Åkerlund, best known for the 2002 drug thriller Spun.
The story centers on a group of Spring Breakers who do battle with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them. The film will be marketed and hopefully sold at Cannes.
"It's not a direct sequel although there are allusions »

Of the companies announcing their slates ahead of the Cannes Film Festival, Wild Bunch is the first to announce something of a surprise. For it's announced a rather unexpected sequel: Spring Breakers: The Second Coming.
Harmony Korine, who wrote and directed the first movie, won't be back for the second. Instead, Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) will write the script and Jonas Ackerlund will direct. Ackerlund is most famed for his music video work including, er, The Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up, but has directed features such as Spun, Small Apartments and the rather good Horsemen.
The film will see the bikini-clad criminals going up against a bunch of extreme militant Christians who attempt to convert them. It certainly sounds interesting.
From the brief synopsis offered up, this time around the Breakers in question will do “battle with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them.” Blimey. Sounds as mad as the first flick. Expect bikini-clad teens wielding an arsenal of weapons.
Tentatively titled Spring Breakers: The Second Coming, intentions are to generate interest prior to selling the film at the prestigious festival this month. And by the looks of the talent attached, they should have no problem there. Set to direct is Spun and Small Apartments director Jonas Akerlund, confirming star James Franco’s comments that original director Korine had no interest in revisiting the material.

The Spring Breakers are reunited once again! Selena Gomez met up with her Spring Breakers costars Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson for a girls' night out this week. The 21-year-old "Come & Get It" singer shared a cute group shot of her and her two pals on Instagram this morning, "Rachel where are you? Reunion with my big sisters for life," Gomez captioned the pic (we're assuming the Rachel shout-out is in reference to their other Spring Breakers costar Rachel Korine). In the photo, the three BFFs sit on a bench while holding each other close. Gomez looks chic in red pants and a loose white top. Meanwhile, Benson rocks a black motorcycle jacket while Hudgens sports all black with »
The film: Four lady-friends are bored with their town. They do what any bored college student would do: Rob a diner and use that money to go down to Florida for their spring break. Once in the state of Florida, the girls get into some trouble and are bailed out by Alien (James Franco), a self-described “gangster with a heart of gold.” Both Alien and the girls share a love of being total weirdos and going on violent power trips, and we see how far some of them will go to have fun.
Why it wasn’t nominated: Spring Breakers is unapologetically explicit. »
