James Franco: 'Spring Breakers' Casting 'Was Perfect'

Spring Breakers co-stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, and Vanessa Hudgens pose in their bikinis for a feature in Interview‘s May issue.

“When I wrote the script, I started thinking about girls in bikinis with guns, wearing ski masks,” director Harmony Korine told the mag. “I was like, ‘Where would you see that?’ And the idea of spring break came to me. I just started imagining girls on spring break robbing places.”

“When Harmony told me who he was going to cast, I thought it was perfect for so many reasons. The young actresses are so excited to do a movie like this with someone like [him]. They were so eager and enthusiastic to be a part of it,” said James Franco, who plays a drug and arms dealer in the film.

Also pictured inside: Vanessa at the gym with her mom Gina on Monday (May 7) in Studio City, Calif.

    @aimee: the movie is called SPRING BREAKERS so even if the girls were demure and reserved (which i’m sure you would know because since you’re calling them trashy you obviously know each and every one of them personally, right?) they obviously aren’t going to act it since spring break is notoriously known for drinking and girls gone wild. but nice try.

    Sara Says:

    @metT: wait what? would my message indicate that im not really that big of a fan of vanessa not that im a “zanessa” fan as you have stated? I am unsure of what you are trying to prove also at calling me a “LOSER” when i simply said my own opinion. All i thought was that jared has mentioned vanessa nearly every day which is quite annoying so i ask this…
    back off and calm down giiirrrll sheesh
    thank you :)

    Haha, how did he go from working with Chloe Sevigny to these talentless morons? The High School Musical chick? The girl that’s dating the boy whose balls still haven’t dropped? Some Disney broad? Judging by the other girl’s name, she got the role through relations.

    Rachel Korine looks so baby faced. It’s strange knowing she’s a mom in real life and actually in her mid-twenties! She only looks about 14! x
