James Franco Bashes 'Spring Breakers' Sequel - Read His Statement!

James Franco Bashes 'Spring Breakers' Sequel - Read His Statement!

James Franco is bashing the planned sequel of his movie Spring Breakers that will not feature involvement from any of the first film’s talent pool.

Spring Breakers: The Second Coming was announced last week and it will “follow a new group of revelers battling an extreme militant Christian sect attempting to convert them,” according to EW.

Here is what James wrote on Instagram about the film: “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’être: to make money off someone else’s creativity. Can you imagine someone making the sequel to “Taxi Driver” without Scorcese and DeNiro‘s consents? Insanity! I’m speaking up for Harmony and his original vision and for any creative person who cares about preserving artistic integrity.”

Spring Breakers also starred Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine.
