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

Chris and Roberta Hanley, who are producing the upcoming sequel Spring Breakers 2, have responded to James Franco‘s comments that the film will be “horrible.”

“Let’s see if I can remember all of the sequels James has done.” Chris Hanley, who listed The Great and Mighty Oz, Spider Man, and Planet of the Apes, said to Variety. “And he’s pushing hard to help set up the Pineapple Express sequel. I guess he thinks only ‘too big to fail studio films’ are the artistically valid ventures.”

In case you missed it, read what James had to say about the sequel right here.

    The first one was HORRIBLE anyway James! This guy is such an asshole!!!!

  • talia

    this hanley guy should go back and check his facts. aside from spider man, james has not starred in any other sequels.

    Spring Breakers too is gonna suck. Harmony Korine is not returning and the plot sounds like an Uwe Boll film. Is he directing it?

  • A

    But Fraco is right! The first movie had this concept and had a great director! This sequel is going to happen just because they wanna sell a movie with girls in bikinis drinking and holding guns.

    YEP HE DID !

    I think Mr. Franco has a highly inflated ego.

  • Gina

    @talia: Both Planet of the Apes and Oz had been done before, so even if their weren’t sequels but reboots, he has no business talking about using someone original idea.

  • Gina

    I’m glad they shot him down and didn’t kiss his as*, he does that to himself enough already.

  • Kate

    Killer rebuttal! Good for him! James Franco has made some terrible films over the years and definitely thinks too highly of himself. That’s not to say that SB2 will be any good and I think it’s a shame if Korine thinks his art will e compromised by lackluster sequel but hey, he’s the one that decided to make a mainstream film and should have known what he was letting himself in for by casting four “celebrity” performers. That’not s why it’called show friendship.

    Okay, let’s be real. The first one SUCKED MIGHTY BALLS. (I mean, how could it not? There was Vanessa Hudgens in it. Enough to destroy a movie..) …But!!!! To be fair, even though James Franco seems to really have a much inflated ego, he is RIGHT. This sequel will SUCK DONKEY BALLS. I honestly don’t know which one’s better. Depends on your viewpoint but what matters is, in the end, BOTH WILL SUCK.

    Funny how people defend most crap films these days as artsy or indy. Spring breakers sucked!

  • Dee

    @Ha: I agree. Even rachel who never acted before was more tolerable than vanessa. Selena was ok. She looked so ripe!

  • Ashlee

    ROFL!!!! Spring breakers was not artistic it was just terrible, and I rarely ever dislike a movie.


    James franco is a terrible actor. The last movies he’s acted in are horrible and he can’t direct for sh!t!
