James Franco & Selena Gomez: Spring Breakers?

James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens & Emma Roberts are reportedly linked to the next Harmony Korine project – Spring Breakers, according to Variety.

The movie centers around four college girls who rob a restaurant in order to pay for a trip to the beach. Emma would play a thrill-seeking Southern brunette, Selena would play a conservative girl while James would be a rapping drug dealer who ends up bailing the group out of jail and persuades them to help him kill his arch-rival.

    just think of it this way, its just another crappy performance in another crappy movie that we can laugh at. God why is hating on Selena so much fun? Oh right….because she can’t ACT or SING!!!

    LOL. Damn what a messed up cast. An Oscar nominated actor with three former teenybopper actresses. I dont know whether to laugh or cry for James. These actresses are trying too hard to break out. They should start with more modest roles before breaking out. Roles that dont scream “LOOK AT ME, I’m DOING SOMETHING EDGY!”

    this project sounds great, and it has an innovative director/writer. i’ve never seen selena in anything, but i have the rest of the cast and they are all top notch.

    I LOVE Vanessa but if she wants to be taken serious as an actress co-staring with a fellow Disney star like Selena sure as hell isn’t going to get her there. She’s still only known for HSM so all people are going to think when they see this is “two Disney girls working together. Yeah I’ll pass.”

    And WTF James could do SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better then a cast of young Disney/Nick stars (Emma was on Nick). No, just no.

    James weren’t you just nominated for an Oscar??? So why would you even consider such a lame ass movie role with a bunch of Disney chicks?!?!

    James and Vanessa in a movie 2gehter? Yes please. Love them both.
    And honestly anyone complaining about James being in a movie with young stars like them, the producers want them cuz the females in this film are supposed to be young, collage girls so….

    Alex Says:

    Seems like Vanessa has a lot of upcoming projects. She´s talented so I´m happy for her. And it doesn´t hurt that she likes challanges. Her movies are really differnet from each other and they seem really good.

    Creed Says:

    James is an oscar worthy actor. why would he dumpster dive for roles? I would undertand if this starred rooney mara and jennifer lawrence but really? I think they are just attaching him for publicity.. idt he would play a druggie 2x.
    Oh. I Iike Vanessa and would give Selena a chance but Emma is the most talentless crap out there. If it was not for her last name she woul be at a community college right now.

    BOJI Says:

    I think some of you underestimate Franco’s judgement. If he is in to do this movie, then it must be something worth viewing. Of the 3 girls, I think Vanessa has ventured the farthest from Disney type movies. My guess is she’ll be playing a kick-ass character or the baddest of the 3. A definite Yay from me.

    Michelle Says:

    Emma is a great actress and James Franco is a great actor too. Vanessa is not really bad. But Selena, let’s wait and see.

    Lyndzz Says:

    No offense to the movie’s director and cast, but I think James Franco can do better. He is extremely talented and I believe he can’t show it in this type of movie.

    Xox Says:

    I still don’t know how I feel about this. V in a movie with Franco is really cool but I don’t know about the plot. But I do know she’s come a long way and is no longer seen as the Disney girl the way Selena still is. Alot of people associate her more with Beastly than HSM these days. Sounds like she wants a change from all of the dramatic movies she’s done this year

    justme Says:

    yea of course vanessa is still a disney girl she has a movie with Nicolas Cage and John Cusack and another movie with Michael Caine and another movie with James Earl Jones she is really a disney girl and yea of course sucker punch is very big proof that she is a disney girl

    mel Says:

    I don’t know why everyone here is making such a big fuss out of this news. No one is gonna see this movie. Selena can’t open a movie. Vanessa can’t open a movie. Nobody likes Emma Nepotism Roberts and James Franco is not the most beloved actor around and the only people that like him, like him for his art house roles so yeah, this movie is already a flop.

    It’s kind of sad that a below mediocre “actress” like Selena is going to star in a movie alongside an incredibly talented actor like James Franco! That is just TERRIBLE casting, in my opinion. And I definitely won’t be watching it. :)

    melanie Says:

    Franco is friends w/ Harmony Korine and has worked with him in the past. I imagine he is doing this as a favor like he did for Stephan Elliot in Cherry. James part is small and I read will only take 2 weeks to shoot, so it’s not that he’s taking a big risk. He does a lot of small parts in films as favors for his friends.

    did you know that Vanessa actually auditioned for the role.. so she deserved the role, she was the best for it..

    how do you know is a lame movie? do you know Harmony Korine´s work? Do you saw any of his movies? how can you just judge a movie like that? BTW James franco was a Disney boy too…

    @sophie: Harmony Korine is a terrible director and is famed for his pointless movies (i.e. movies with no meaning whatsoever).

    Well if James is so great then what an opportunity for these girls then. To learn and gain experience from someone like him. Personally I just think he’s ok

  62. 62
    A Says:

    I think it would have been WAY better if maybe they only used one of the girls that are known in the teen world and then maybe tried to get girls like Amanda Seyfried who have some credit to their name, are well known but aren’t known in the teen world. Here it just looks like they cast the three of them just to bring in the tween/teen group.

    Well I bet James thinks very highly of his future Co stars as he’s not as stuck up as people here. Everyone was obviously cast for a reason.

    maria Says:

    @?: I agree. The director obviously saw what he wanted in each girl, and offered them the roles. My only issue is that Vanessa has already left her Disney days behind, but now has to deal with this label again because of Gomez. I think this will be yet another good and different role for her. I’m not a fan of Gomez or her acting, nor of Roberts. But I have to trust the director knows what he is doing, and got who he wanted for the roles.

    james is not selfish at all when he agreed to do this film.he was not thinking of himself only but the potential of the movie as a whole.The girls can actually learn from him how to perfect their craft…NICE james.
