'Spring Breakers 2' Producers Respond to James Franco's Criticisms

15 May 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Spring Breakers star James Franco, who received critical raves for his performance as the cornrowed drug dealer Alien, issued a harsh statement for the filmmakers behind the sequel Spring Breakers: The Second Coming, which neither he nor director Harmony Korine are involved with. In case you missed it yesterday, here's the actor's statement in full.

Statement About Spring Breakers 2: This is not being done with Harmony Korine or my consent. The original was wholly Harmony's creation and these producers are capitalizing on that innovative film to make money on a weak sequel. I want everyone to know that whoever is involved in the sequel is jumping on board a poison ship. It will be a terrible film, with a horrible reason d'&#234tre: to make money off someone else's creativity. Can you imagine someone making the sequel to Taxi Driver without Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro's consents? »
