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.

The first Spring Breakers was hard to watch..yet he’s comparing the situation to a remake of Taxi big headed of him. I see where he’s coming from but seriously dude chill out..The movie wasn’t that good to begin with

@cali: The first one was a whole metaphor for excess and youth detachment. Sequel sounds like it’s just going to play it literal.

# 4

Dude, your film was not Taxi Driver and you aren’t Robert DeNiro you narcissistic loser

# 5

Is he really comparing, even indirectly, Taxi Driver and Spring Breakers

# 6

the film had so much potential but then when i think about it it was pretty much a mess and ~artistic~ on purpose. i mean how many young people think they are deep and meaningful when they really arent? its just a neon wet dream.
but yeah they shouldnt make another one whats the point? critics liked the first one, public hated it move on

# 7

the first movie sucked though lol

# 8

Hmm, All I read wash blah, blah, blah. Im James Franco. blah blah blah

He just can’t tolerate not being in the center of attention. And the movie was a piece of trash anyway. Certainly no business even being mentioned on taxi driver level.

idk what’s worse, the fact that he’s comparing himself and harmony to scorcese and dinero or the fact that he used the term ‘raison d’etre’ like byeeee james franco, go sit down somewhere

Im surprised he would be in a film like that. He must want to stay young forever, or try reaally hard to stick with the young crowd.
Ego trippin

Is he comparing himself to Robert DeNiro?

James fckin moron @ 05/14/2014 at 7:27 pm

His ego is killin him, besides drugs. JF is the biggest loser and narcissistic junkie eva

What are you talking about? the first one wasn’t even good.

He needs to sit his a$$ down. He’s another conceited moron. No one wants his opinion or him.

I had a class with him and the dude treats others like dirt, including his students. He’s not that smart and hes very disconnected during class. He is not all that just an overrated actor. He smells like farts and his breath is worst than excrement. Seriously guys he’s na$$$ty

For all of ya talking about my bae , he likes guys. The sb movie scene about him giving a bj to a gun thats how bae do it and he loves to be a bottom and havin someone torture his hole until is ripped and bleedin. I am a guy that want to have his babies so bawd

Did he really just put spring breakers in the same level as taxi driver ..

JF became known around hollywood for sleeping around to get work, like Lindsey L. but now he is on top of the industry he doesn’t need to be related to her when they’re the same. He’s surrounded by the wrong crowd and crappy manager and he does believe rules don’t apply to him. SBs is the worst movie ever nothing to be proud of but again is JF the dbag

@Amy Logan: you sound like a bitter student that tried to hit on the teacher and failed. Your probably a dude that got an F not only in class but tryan to be a girl. This dude is an incredible teacher nothing but love and respect for him

@Leah: are u 16,17 ? Or are u a disturbed teen that want to be spanked by james the gross?

Did he just compare Spring Breakers to Taxi Driver and himself to Robert DeNiro? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! OMG, James is crazy.

Spring breakers sucked monkeys balls
